PAN has been attending Thanksgiving dinner at Joe Allen’s for more years than I can remember.
BUT THIS YEAR WE’RE GOING TO TRY SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT!!!
The AUC (American University Clubs) has also been organizing a Thanksgiving dinner each year, and past president Patricia and I never publicized their meal which was often the same date as PAN’s. They tend to change venues every year, and recently have been able to pull off some pretty prestigious ones. They used to be more expensive than Joe Allen, but with their change in policy, this is no longer the case, and the AUC price is less than what PAN would have to charge.
This year they have outdone themselves and retained an exceptional venue, the historic Ecole Militaire, near the Champs de Mars. This site is normally only open to the public during the European Heritage Days for 2 days each September. I visited it several years ago and it is sumptuous (we also toured the stables, but I doubt we’ll be eating there!).
