St. Pat’s Party at the Club

Kurt napGrab your little leprechaun and head on over to the Glutton Club on Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day for a bit of green celebratin’.

Festivities get underway around 2 or 3 pm or after the parade if you’re goin’.  Corned beef and cabbage and potatoes will be the fare.  You’re asked to bring a snack or side dish to share and $5 per person. 

They’re goin’ to have a few drinks from the Progressive Dinners leftover funds, but if you’ve got a little Irish in ya (and who doesn’t on St. Patty’s Day) or if yer’ a Glutton you might want to pack a cooler cause them leftovers won’t go far.

Rumor has it that some chick named Erin will go brahless too!

 

Progressive Dinner This Saturday, March 3

Progressive dinnerThe Gluttons will hold a Progressive Dinner this Saturday, March 3, 2012.  A progressive dinner is a dinner party in which each successive course is prepared and eaten at the residence of a different host.

We’re going to start out at Joe and Karen’s house (117 Lamplighter Way, 63368) in O’Fallon MO at 3 pm and then work our way back closer to town as the evening progresses.  There will be 4 stops along the way.  I’m sure a group will meet at the club around 2 pm and carpool out west.

There will be a $5 pp charge and you’re asked to BYOB.
