Around the House: November 2017
October was another busy and fun month for House Committee. I hope you were able to come to the Founder’s Day/EYC History Book Rollout and purchased the book and DVD. October 13, 1980, was a very special day when our founders held the first meeting of invited charter members upstairs at Marmaduke’s. Thank You to our founders for the wonderful club that we have today to enjoy. A huge Thank You to all of the staff and volunteers who made this night a huge success.
The long awaited Bourbon and Cigar Night with our host Mark Jones was a fun night with the tasting of 6 premium bourbons, a cigar to enjoy them with along with some wonderful food pairings from Chef Henry. Everyone was treated to some great surprises which included an extra special bourbon tasting.
We ended the month with own Halloween Party. It was a Spooktacular Event that was celebrated with the ghosts, goblins and pumpkins. We had some fun games and a costume contest with prizes and a few surprises to enjoy. Our own Juanita came up with a Vampire Cocktail for the evening festivities.
November is here and we will have our Chesapeake Seafood Bake on Saturday, November 18th. You will be served a big old bucket containing a lobster along with clams, mussels and shrimp prepared by Chef Henry. Henry’s sides will be set out on a buffet table where you’ll find corn on the cob, potatoes, salad and dessert. We will have draft and wine specials for this event. This has been a sold-out event – remember the bucket-o-seafood along with sides – so don’t forget to save the date and stay tuned for more details, because tickets are limited and reservations will be required. Seating times will be staggered to allow the kitchen to keep up with the dining room, and we ask that you honor your reservation time so everyone can be served in a timely and comfortable manner. Find out more at eastportyc.org/seafood.
Save the date: Saturday, December 2, we will enjoy our holiday decorations along with the now infamous ‘Get Your Elf On!’ party. Wear your elf hat or wear a name tag with your elf name printed on it and get a drink ticket.
We value your comments and suggestions so please fill out a comment card when you receive it with your bill. You can also find them on the table by the hostess stand.
Reminder: the House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the conference room. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.
