Steppin' Out with Yoko for the first time
On May 22, 1968, a luncheon was held at Club Dell'Aretusa in Chelsea in honor of the new Apple Tailoring shop. George Harrison and wife Pattie were there as well as John Lennon and his brand new girlfriend, Yoko Ono. And when I say brand new girlfriend, I am not kidding. The whole thing with Cyn and the night with Yoko in Kenwood all just went down three days before this event. Of course the fans and the public did not know about any of that at the time. Surprisingly, Yoko kept a fairly low profile at this event. While she was in photos with John, she didn't make it obvious to anyone that they were a couple. After the lunch, everyone walked over to the Apple Tailoring building and this is where photos of John and Yoko were snapped that looked a tad more intimate (such as the one on top), but still weren't obvious that they were a couple. I wonder what the fans who saw this happening on this day thought about Yoko. Did they realize that she was "with" John or just think that she was a friend?
