Hungarian Vegan Dinner, and Houdini Premiere

Hungarian-American VEGAN Dinner! Savor something different, and traditional, this coming week. Here is the partial menu. More will be added in the next few days: No-Fail Kale Salad
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and dippers
Gulyas (Bean Goulash)
Rakott Kaposzta (layered cabbage casserole)
Chef's Surprise
Homemade Walnut Apple Cake
Signature beverage for the evening: Houdini-tini(tm) and herbal tea beverage

After dinner, enjoy the Bay Area premiere of HOUDINI!

Based on the book "Houdini: A mind in chains - A Psychoanalytic Portrait" by Bernard C. Meyer, M.D. His ability to escape from handcuffs, straitjackets and water tanks is legendary — breaking the shackles of his past proved more challenging. Academy Award® Winner Adrien Brody stars in HISTORY®’s new film, Houdini, which follows the world-renowned master of escape’s transformation from immigrant into the world’s first superstar. Driven, disciplined and actively chasing the American Dream, Houdini constantly pushed his physical limits to accomplish feats of strength that amazed audiences in an age of spectacle. And though they saw what he wanted them to see, his reality was more elusive than his escapes.

Red carpet fun: The ambiance will be a re-creation of a fin de siecle atmosphere with special touches to evoke a red–carpet-premiere of the early 1900s. Festive attire is encouraged. Photo props available for a perfect photo opportunity!

The era also featured the second wave of vegetarianism in the US. The program will feature history and discussion about the resurgence of American vegetarianism at the turn of the century. Patricia was chosen over thousands of applicants to host this festive event. She is preparing a fabulous dinner, plus ambiance and decor to match. Wear Period attire and walk the red carpet! Enjoy an unforgettable evening.

Location is the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Take the elevator to the first floor. Security will key you to the mezzanine for the event.

A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat dinner, plus the premiere. The nutritionist donates her time. Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and other costs.
