The Sixth Annual Wheatley School Alumni Association New York City Lunch will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, from 12:30 to 2:30, at Café Espanol, 172 Bleecker Street, between MacDougal and Sullivan Streets (in the heart of Greenwich Village), New York, NY.
Dear Wheatley Community,
The Sixth Annual Wheatley School Alumni Association New York City Lunch will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 (the day preceding Valentine’s Day), from 12:30 to 2:30 PM, at Café Espanol, 172 Bleecker Street (between MacDougal and Sullivan Streets, in the heart of Greenwich Village), New York, NY.
Lunch will begin with stuffed mushrooms, meatballs, chicken empanadas, and chicken/ham croquettes, to be followed by a green salad with what is reputed to be a delicious house dressing.
The entrees are:
- Paella Valenciana (with chicken, sausage, and shellfish);
- Shrimp in Garlic Sauce
- Broiled Salmon
- Chicken with Peppers and Onions
- Broiled Pork Chops; or
- Vegetarian plate (exact contents to be detarimined)
The side dishes are a choice of yellow rice, Spanish potatoes, or vegetables.
Desert is a traditional flan or vanilla ice cream, with coffee or tea.
The third best part of all is that the entire two-hour lunch comes with unlimited wine, beer, Sangria, or soda!
The second best part of all is that this feast is available for a remarkable $38, all-inclusive. Why so inexpensive? Because Café Espanol is not only a client of Ruth Rennert, Class of 1962, but she is a neighborhood regular who often takes her own clients, friends, and family there. Ruth and I were able to convince the establishment to give us a terrific deal. By way of comparison, last year’s Wheatley Alumni Association NYC Lunch was $60.
But the best part of all is that you get to mingle with classmates and old friends and make new ones! The previous five Wheatley Lunches have been well-attended and much enjoyed.
As usual, I will play banker. You can pay through PayPal at http://www.wheatleyalumni.org/2018Luncheon.html
Or you can mail a check, payable to me, as follows:
60 Centre Street
New York, NY, 10007.
Or you can just bring a check or cash to the event itself. In the latter case, please RSVP via e-mail.
Café Espanol can accommodate up to 55 people, a number we have approached or even reached in previous years, so get your name on my list early.
If you live out of town, but you are in The Big Apple that day or week, please join us; we hardly ever get to see you!
The restaurant’s entrance and dining areas are on street level and easily accessible; however, the restrooms are down a flight of steps.
I thank Ruth for her venue suggestion and bargaining prowess, and Keith Aufhauser, Class of 1963, for his technical help with PayPal and, as always, The Wheatley School Alumni Association website. WWW.WHEATLEYALUMNI.ORG
