?Anti-Holiday Jambalaya Dinner Party- December 14th
Take 5 Café Presents “Anti-Holiday Jambalaya Dinner Party” Sunday December 14, 2014 Dinner starts at 5 PM ‘til roughly 8 PM $15 includes dinner and iced tea (Other Take 5 Café drinks are the usual cost) Red and white wine will be available Buy your ticket in advance: Online or In Person: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/967430 Take 5 Café 3130 Sacramento St Berkeley CA 94702 email@example.com 415-595-8822 http://www.take5cafe.net/ https://www.facebook.com/take5cafe This is only for 30 women of a certain persuasion (yah, you guessed it-LGBQT) who think that getting together for food and fun with old friends or to meet new ones might be just as much fun as a Holiday celebration! So once we have 30 women, the tickets will be sold out. There “might” be music (but you never know ‘til that evening)….There might even be presents (kind of sounds like a Holiday party, eh?)….All you know so far is that if you’re there, it’ll be a blast! Hey, what’s “Jambalaya,” anyway? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jambalaya OK, briefly, it’s a Louisiana Creole dish of Spanish and French influence. “Think” chicken, seafood, and sausage over an amazing rice concoction with herbs and spices. (I have to stop here because I’m drooling!) No, that’s not all. There’s homemade cornbread and salad, and of course something special for desert, but that's a suprise!
