Christmas Dinner Party
on Saturday, 5 December 2015

Dear members and friends,

We will conclude our program for 2015 and celebrate the Christmas season with our traditional social highlight, the

Christmas Dinner Party
Saturday, December 5, 2015,
17.30 hours

in the
Restaurant Alte Kanzlei
Schillerplatz 5A, 70173 Stuttgart

© www.stuttgart-tourist.deThe 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 reception featuring Christmas Punch (with and without alcohol) inside the Restaurant.Follow the GAC signs and go up the stairs to our private dining rooms, Merlot I and II.
At 18:15 everyone should be settled at their tables so that we can enjoy some wonderful musical entertainment. As a special treat this year we have a professional opera singer, Ms. Iris Baumhof, who will present a concert before dinner, sing a short reprise after dessert, and then help us with our carol singing. She is from Stuttgart, studied music and opera at the Musikhochschule here and is currently the no.2 Soprano in the choir of the Bavarian State Theater Gärtnerplatz, Munich. She has sung several solo roles, toured internationally and has a large repertoire including opera, operette and church music.
At 19:00 we will begin our delicious holiday dinner, consisting of a clear mushroom soup (Pilzkraftbrühe mit Morchel-Nocken), an elegant deer stew with forest mushrooms (Hirschedelgulasch mit Waldpilzen), cranberry sauce (Preiselbeeren), Spätzle and winter green salad. For dessert we will enjoy Mousse au Chocolat with Cassis Figs.
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 and holiday fun. After dessert we will cap off the evening with a rousing Christmas sing-a-long. Be ready to join in and send everyone off in a festive holiday mood. Volume and enthusiasm are more important than talent! 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 € 33. Drinks with the meal are extra. The club will pay for the Christmas Punch 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.

If you would like to experience more of the Christmas season on the day of our party, stroll through the famous Stuttgart Christmas Market beforehand. Just remember to be on time at the Alte Kanzlei, 17.30 hours sharp!

Dress code: semi-formal - Gentlemen, please wear a suit and tie, Ladies, please come in your best festive finery. Thank you for your understanding.

Merry Christmas
