Thanksgiving Dinner 2015

There have been several discussions regarding a club activity for Thanksgiving dinner.  While some individuals may want to go to Charlie P’s or 1516, we wanted all club members to know of this specific invitation we have received from the American Women’s Association (AWA).

The AWA has cordially invited the AIOV to join them for their annual American Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, 26 November starting at 6:30 p.m.  Due to the popularity of this event last year, the event will be held again at the Intercontinental Hotel.  They have graciously offered a lovely banquet room for this festive evening.  The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Stadtpark U4 station.

thanksgivingThe Thanksgiving feast will include the traditional turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberries, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, and a selection of breads.  This will be a buffet style meal, allowing everyone a chance to stuff themselves as full as a Thanksgiving turkey!  We kindly ask that you bring a dessert to share.

We look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving dinner with you and your family.  In the spirit of the holiday, guests are very welcome and the more the merrier!

Cost is 40 Euros per person (inclusive of unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks, coffee, tea and water)

15 Euros for children 12 and under.

If interested, please send an email to Pete Wells ( with the names of participants (indicating children) and pre-pay to the AIOV account by Wednesday, 19 November.
