Coming out of the Fourth of July break, we’ll enter our “Summer Casual” schedule in earnest when Doris and Dean Calamaras host a special Mediterranean-tinged dinner on Thursday, July 12.
The present heat wave will somewhat abate by then, but temperatures still are expected to be in the mid-80s. Because of that, and some major renovation work being done on their deck, Dean and Doris will host the event indoors — with air conditioning. (Thank you!)
It’s a sit-down dinner limited to 18 people. Our hosts will provide the customary social hour refreshments and some appetizers for guests arriving at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6 or 6:30.
Please RSVP by email to email@example.com or by phone to 518-477-4694 no later than 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 10. Please specify names of all guests. Donation to the club is suggested at $15 per person.
Boeuf a la Corse — Corsican beef tips in a delicate wine sauce, with macaroni (see photo above), accompanied by green beans a la Grecque, and corn on the cob.
Beginnings & Endings — Guests with last names beginning with A through M are invited to bring an appetizer serving 4-6 persons, and those with surnames beginning with N through Z a dessert serving 4-6.
The remainder of our “Summer Casual Calendar” is as follows. Please email or call in your RSVPs as soon as possible to help the planning go smoothly. Note that we still need several someones to host or coordinate two remaining open August dates:
