He invited us to hang around until closing and drink wine with him and his wife, and during that time I drew a pretty lousy portrait of him on a napkin (yes, cliché, but I was unprepared). I vowed to myself that I would eventually follow up with a better one, and finally I did. He was pleased! You can listen to his fine organ grinding here:
