Around the House: July 2018
Our first Music on the Deck with Ellis Woodward started us out with some rain but the fun was moved into the clubhouse for everyone to enjoy. We didn’t forget our Dads on Father’s Day who were treated to some great specials and were entertained with Music on the Deck with Blue Suede Bop.
June is almost over and July Fourth is going to be here before we know it. This year’s EYC celebration should be really great, with live music from Major Company starting at 6 p.m., a sumptuous cookout buffet, and, of course, the best seats in town for the fireworks.
Guest Policy: EYC members and their immediate families who live under the same roof are admitted free, but there will be a $10 charge for guests ($5 for children under 11) (Cash Only). In addition to immediate families, member guests are restricted to 2 non-member adults and their related children. The club will open for the July 4th festivities beginning at 5 p.m.
Important: If you are entertaining on your boat in the marina, please plan ahead and leave your guests names at the office by July 2nd so they may be signed in properly without the $10 charge. This helps with the check in process.
There will be a check-in table set-up for the festivities for you to sign in any guests and to receive your wristbands.
A note about EYC Food Service on the Fourth: The clubhouse will be closed until the party starts at 5 p.m.; regular Wednesday night service from the Galley and Dining Room menus will not be available that evening.
Keep your eyes on the Newsblast and for flyers around the clubhouse for more details.
Join us on July 14th for our Bastille Wine Bistro and Café. We will have a special tasting of French wines and perfectly paired French food. A wine expert will be on hand to talk to us about the wines. This is a reserved and limited seating event. We are not able to do walk-ins. Watch the Newsblast and bulletin board for flyers around the clubhouse for more details.
We continue the fun on the 21st with our next Speakeasy where we will feature Three Ingredient Cocktails. Our own cocktail mixologist Mike Thompson was inspired to create this Speakeasy by a young man who asked him one day, “Tell me how to make some drinks.” Mike began to explain how to make a margarita, but the young man interrupted and said, “I can’t remember more than three ingredients, please make it simple.”
So for all of you who can’t remember more than three ingredients, we bring you Three Ingredient Cocktails. There are old and new classics, cocktails that have stories behind them and have appeared in film and literature, after all if you’re learning, you’re not really drinking. The three cocktails are The Gimlet, The Cosmopolitan, and The Martini. There will be food pairings to go with our cocktails and there is always a surprise to two. This is a reserved and limited seating event. We are not able to do walk-ins. Watch the Newsblast and bulletin board for flyers around the clubhouse for more details.
House Committee has a brief survey on food service at EYC for you to take. The goal of the survey is to find out from as many members as possible what you think about the menu offerings, the quality, consistency and pricing. It really is a short survey taking only a couple of minutes of your time and this is your opportunity to let us know your thoughts on this. Your names will be confidential, used for no purpose other than to know who has participated to help us improve our club experiences. Click here to take the survey. Please take the few minutes to take the survey and make your opinion count. We appreciate your input on this and Thank You.
The club is now serving lunch on Thursdays so come in and take a break and enjoy the view.
