Victorian Dinner Gets Rave Reviews

The December DB15 meeting was held in conjunction with the Gaslight's
renown Victorian Dinner.  A significant number of club members took
advantage of the nearly 30% discount offered by our club's Treasurer.  
The evening's cuisine and beverages were outstanding.  Chef Soboti's
arrival near the end of the dinner brought a well deserved standing ovation.
Congratulations to all for putting on the event of the year!  
Is that our own club treasurer, Brian
Lynch with Frtiz Maytag,  founder of
the world famous Anchor Brewing
company?  Will Mr. Maytag be a
guest judge at our home brew
challenge?  You'll have to come to
the January meeting to find out.

PM meeting start
