Gerber’s 1933 Tavern, Utica

The Ten Bucks and a Wish Book Tour Opening Weekend continued at Gerber’s 1933 Tavern, in Utica, hosted by the very kind and supportive Mark Mojave.

The event was SRO literally! with people filling all the tables and comfy chairs. Friends and family gathered to celebrate and it really was everything I hoped it would be. Drinks, hors d’oeuvres, cake, good music, and great company made everything perfect!

Looking forward to working with Mr. Mojave in the future with other book release parties! Thank you, Mark and Susan, for your support and graciousness!

Janina Grey (Me!) about to set up at Gerber’s!
Me and the Fan Fam! (L-R) Brett, Allie Rose, Anthony, me, and the love of my life, David.
My sis, Jeana, helped me prepare and plan for everything. Here we are shocked and awed as Mark turned on the radio and Landslide played. Landslide is the tune we relate to our sister Janie, who passed in 2007. Whenever something is going on that song plays as if she is saying, “I’m here, too.” Thanks, Janie, for showing up. And thanks, Jeana for being the counter balance of a landslide – ROCK SOLID whenever I need you.
