Christmas Dinner Party
Saturday, 4 December 2010

Dear members and friends,

We will conclude our program for 2010 and celebrate the Christmas season with our traditional social highlight, the

Christmas Dinner Party
Saturday, December 4, 2010, 17.30 hours
in the
Restaurant Alte Kanzlei
Schillerplatz 5A, 70173 Stuttgart

The Alte Kanzlei is on the west side of the Schlossplatz just across from the Altes Schloss (Old Castle). Look for the building with the Golden Mercury statue on top.
We will meet at 17:30 for a Glühwein/Glühpunch reception at the Christmas Market stand of the Alte Kanzlei, called the Schwaben Hütte, on the long side of the Alte Kanzlei facing the Schlossplatz. The club will provide Christmas music during the reception. Listen for the Accordion!
At 18:15 we will move inside to our private room on the first floor, where we will enjoy a holiday concert to whet our appetites.

At 19:00 we will begin our delicious four course dinner, which will consist of:

  • Clear essence of tomato soup with basil dumpling
  • Winter green salad with balsamico dressing and roasted bread croutons
  • Beef and pork filet medallions in a mushroom sauce with Spätzle
  • Apple "Küchle" with vanilla sauce and chocolate ice cream.

A vegetarian main course is also available with the menu.
If you prefer this option, please let us know when you make your dinner reservation.

Between dinner courses we will be treated to Christmas stories, more music, and maybe a surprise or two. After dessert we will cap of the evening with a rousing Christmas sing-a-long, to music accompaniment. Be ready to join in and send everyone off in a festive holiday mood! Following our tradition we would greatly appreciate it if some of the ladies (and gentlemen!) bring homemade Christmas cookies to share with others and to serve as table decorations.

The price for the dinner is € 32. Drinks with the meal are extra. The club will pay for the Gluhwein reception and entertainment, and also contribute to the cost of dinner to keep the price as listed above. Pleasant conversation, as always, is free, but you must bring lots of Christmas cheer to make the evening a success.

Please make reservations at the very latest by Monday, November 29 with:

Scott Beard: Tel. 07181-46594, email:s.beard@gac1948.de
