    MESSAGE FROM THE

    VICE PRESIDENT TEAM

    Brunch
    It’s time to talk about February’s monthly meeting! While the majority of our events are in the morning, next month’s event shifts both our time and experience to midday.

    Historically INC has included a yearly lunch option in January (last year was excluded due to the pandemic) but this year we are bringing it to you in the month of Valentines and “Galentines.” A stone’s throw from Plaza Mayor, our setting is in a 500 year old baroque chapel just off of Calle de la Bolsa. From the moment you enter this historical building, your eyes are transfixed on the vaulted ceilings, the intricate details of the plaster, the gold leaf, and the magnificence of a hidden gem that you could not have predicted from the street.

    While the restaurant has several differently themed rooms, we have secured “El Olivar” (Olive Grove) for you this month. We will actually be sitting what was part of the old “Templo de Santa Cruz” as well as the old Madrid Stock Exchange (1875-1893). The VP Team has worked diligently to bring you a carefully selected gastronomical delight for a fixed price; appetizer, main, dessert and drink all for Є25 (member price) or Є35 (guest price). Your yearly dues have offset the member fee and we are sure this Spanish-Italian feast is sure to take you on a journey without ever needing to leave your seat. That being said, if you have allergies that are not addressed with the options presented, please communicate through email and we will try to address them (no later than the specified RSVP deadline).

    Due to restaurant capacity, space is of course limited for this activity. The RSVP is now running but you will be required to secure you spot with the payment prior to the 10th of February. The website will present the menu and guide you in the ticket/payment process. Please note that after the deadline, no RSVP’s can be modified or refunded as we will have already paid the restaurant for your attendance.

    We hope you will join us at:
    Caluana Restaurant
    Calle de la Bolsa, 12
    February 17th 1:30-4:00

    Your VP Team
    Vicky, Tina and Hyacinth

    Enjoying life – safely – together!
