German Wine Society Holiday Dinner at the Cosmos Club

December 6, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ho Ho Ho, German Wine Society Members and Friends of German Wines,

We’ve made our list and checked it twice … you’re in!  So, please plan to attend this holiday paired dinner at the Cosmos Club, Saturday, December 6, 2014, starting at 7 p.m. 

The address for our holiday dinner is 2121 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20008.   Metro is near and parking is ample. The venue is stunning: a private room, the Members Dining Room, in this landmark building.  Perfect for that special evening with friends and family!

The paired dinner: an exciting fusion of German and non-German wine regions we have been visiting throughout the year:


Smoked Salmon Flower in a pastry cup with cream cheese and capers

Coffee and Tea

Club parking is off Florida Ave. behind the club. There is a small white sign showing the parking entrance.  Parking is free and there is no tipping at the club including the valet parking. Parking is limited and Club members have preference. I would advise getting there early in case there are numerous functions going on at the club that evening.

Dress code is strict, coats and ties for men, no jeans or tennis shoes.  Comparable attire for women.

Dinner is $95 for members, $105 for non-members.

The deadline for reservations is Tuesday, December 2, so that we may provide Chef the count. This promises to be a wonderful event so send off your reservations right away and don’t miss out.

Join the festivities by sending your check (payable to the German Wine Society) to: German Wine Society, 5607  Huntington Parkway, Bethesda, Maryland 20814. Please include name, number of guests, email, and phone number.

All Society members and guests are reminded that alcohol consumption can lead to intoxication, and therefore Society members and their guests are expected to drink in moderation at Society events.  It is advisable to provide designated drivers or other modes of transit where available, or mostly to taste rather than consume alcohol when such drivers or alternative means of transportation are not available.
