Supra/Tamada


Normally, I would never post a picture of someone at a party without their permission. However, in this case, the person insisted that I post the picture! This individual served as the 'Tamada' at a 'Supra' I attended a few weeks ago. To refresh your memory, a Supra is a kind of Georgian party that is held on special occasions or, possibly for no special reason at all. The Tamada is the person who proposes toasts during the Supra. But, he doesn't propose just any toast-there seems to be a formal process that occurs during the evening. I must admit, I don't really understand how this proceeds so maybe others out there can comment on this. All I can say is, our Tamada was a very talented toastmaster dare I say, almost poetic!


You may notice a glass in the person's right hand. I believe there was only water in his glass the whole night. Otherwise, no human being could have drunk as many shots as this person seemed to have done!
