It's time to welcome the winter and meet friends old and new to catch up on what's been going on this last year. It's no coincidence that this dinner falls on the same date that we met last year and watched incredulously as Hillary lost her historic bid for the White House. So if you want to wear black, we'll definitely understand. And if you want to make your favorite comfort food from your state, we'll also understand.
To those of you new to the 50-states-dinner concept, it's quite simple. Come to the dinner with a dish to share with everyone else, something that you feel best represents your state. Or just your favorite meal from your state. If you're not in a cooking mood, but want to join for the comradery and to sample some of the best food this side of the Atlantic, we'll be taking donations at the door of 300 Kc per person (kids under 12 are 100 Kc). Of course adult beverages are always welcome as well, and they don't have to be from your home state!
We'll be sending out the address of the event to those who've said they're attending closer to the date, but it's between Namesti Miru and Jiriho z Podrebrad to give you an idea of location. There's a tram that stops less than 100 meters from the front door, and there is an elevator in the building. Significant other (American or not) and kids are welcome, pets not so much as there's a dog already living there who isn't always a fan of other pups.
Also closer to the date we'll send an email asking whether you're cooking or just planning on enjoying the buffet, and if you're cooking, what you're planning to bring and how many people have said they're attending.
Thanks, hope to see you there!
