Our beloved Holiday Dinner and Gift Exchange is happening again this December!
This is our chance to come together as a community and enjoy good food and fun during the magical German advent time.
This year’s dinner is being organized by the amazing Ingrid Schneider at the Ratskeller in central Stuttgart (you’ll remember we were there for our Christmas in July last year). It’s under new ownership and the food promises to be a little fancier than the last time we were there.
We will start our evening with a complimentary glass of Sekt at 18:30, followed by a three-course meal. You can find all the details about the menu further on in this post and will be asked for your choices when you RSVP.
After dinner, all members are invited to take part in our optional gift exchange, which is loads of fun every year. If you would like to participate, please bring a wrapped gift worth €15 (no gag or re-gifts please). Choose something that you yourself would be happy to receive because with this exchange, that could very well happen! You do not have to participate in the gift exchange to attend the dinner.
Dress up if you wish!! We are calling the dress code for the evening “Holiday Fabulousness” which means anything festive will work. Choose your outfit carefully, because Sandra has organized fun photobooth-style portraits for those who wish!
FHF GIVING TREE
And as always, Sandra is also organizing the Frauen helfen Frauen Virtual Giving Tree again this year and you are welcome to bring along your wrapped gift for the shelter to give her at this dinner. All the details can be found in the separate Giving Tree blog post.
This is a members-only event and the IWCS club-sponsored price per person of €40 (for fish or chicken) or €35 (for vegetarian pasta) includes your food, a welcome glass of sparkling wine (or something non-alcoholic), and table water.
PLEASE NOTE that any drinks ordered apart from the provided table water and welcome beverage must be paid for by you on the night of the event.
