Everyone loves to eat, and Couples Gourmet provides you and your husband with the opportunity to try new recipes and make new friends. We get together on the first Saturday evening of the month from September through May in member homes. Hostesses and co-hostesses make the menu for the evening, and the cost of the meal is shared among those attending. Over the years, we have hosted a Kentucky Derby party, a summer picnic, a holiday brunch, a Norwegian Christmas dinner, a return to the ’50s, and an evening in Paris. Our creativity knows no limits. Don’t be afraid; all levels of culinary skill are welcome.
Do you long for a gracious dining experience? Then, Ladies Gourmet is a group that might interest you. We gather in one another’s homes for a delicious luncheon made by the luncheon committee. This committee changes every month. It includes the hostess and her cooks, who set the menu and prepare the luncheon. Costs of the meal are shared among those members attending. Ladies Gourmet meets the first Wednesday of the month at noon.
You might debate whether we are gourmets or gourmands, but we are definitely a fun-loving, food-loving, adventurous group that likes to cook and try new things! Meeting at noon on the third Tuesday of the month, we share each meal’s cost and the effort involved. Everyone takes a turn to be hostess or co-hostess. When it’s your turn, you make the rules! It can be very gourmet and fancy or as casual as a picnic — your choice!
Are you new to bridge and want to hone your skills? Although it is expected that you understand the basics of bridge, this is a “friendly” environment that encourages kibbitzing at the tables. More experienced players come and share their understanding of the game. We meet in the afternoon on the second Monday of the month throughout in year in member homes. Bridge players are encouraged to sign up as permanent players or as substitutes.
