Thinking Beyond Corned Beef & Cabbage this St. Patrick’s Day

Here at The City Club, we love any excuse to celebrate anything and everything, especially holidays! From food to table scapes and all details in between, we’re always excited about new twists on holiday traditions, so we decided to switch things up this St. Patrick’s Day. For the more traditionalists, rest assured corned beef and cabbage is definitely on the menu in the Member’s Cafe today. We won’t leave you hanging!

Do you know the meaning of “Potluck”?

Potluck, originally meant “what may chance to be in the pot, in provision for a meal; a meal at which no special preparation has been made for guests” now mostly associated with “a meal consisting of whatever guests have brought.”

For your next Spring gathering, be it a St. Patrick’s Day potluck or an Easter or Passover get-together, try one of these delicious green treats (links to recipes listed below):

Pop Up Wedding Event! 2.19.16

Cheers to the newly engaged! The City Club rolled out the white carpet (literally!) to over 100 newly engaged couples last Friday evening at our first-ever Pop Up Wedding Event! Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a glass of bubbly from a stunning Champagne Skirt – and the night got started from there!

628_0003628_0022Models adorning custom gowns from Trish Lee  and Jinza Couture Bridal mingled throughout the event. A Bridal Suite featured more bridal gowns, hair styling with Hair by Tony and Hair by Ezelda, and make up by Christina Choi Cosmetics. Next to the bridal suite, a Groom’s Lounge was set to the nines with a whiskey tasting and a cigar roller, rolling cigars for guests to enjoy as the night progressed.-

While guests noshed on delicious wedding cake from The Cakemaker, they were surprised by a lively and dramatic flash mob! Because nothing says “wedding” better than a full, rocking dance floor!
