This year’s Mexican War Streets Progressive Dinner will be held on Saturday, February 17 from 6:00 to 10:00 pm! This annual tradition encourages us get out of our houses during the winter to meet our neighbors, both new and old. The theme for this year’s dinner is the Roaring 1920s! Feel free to pull out your Great Gatsby duds, feather boas, and flapper headbands! Or, if you prefer, come as you are.
How does a Progressive Dinner work? A Progressive Dinner involves groups of neighbors enjoying different parts of a meal at different houses. Participants meet at a designated spot in the neighborhood for cocktails. They will then divide up into pre-assigned small groups, and move onto an appetizer/first course house. The last stop will be the entree/dessert house. All guests bring something to the table: you can bring an appetizer or a dessert, or you can volunteer to make the entree, which is based on a simple recipe that will be provided to you. The MWSS provides all the wine. Hosts do not have to contribute any food or drink.
Currently, the Mexican War Streets Society is looking for neighbors to host an entree or an appetizer. If you are interested in hosting, and/or if you would like to attend, fill out the Progressive Dinner online form. You can either email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at 1411 Arch Street. For more details, visit the Mexican War Streets Society Progressive Dinner event page.
