What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
Join us at Fairouz Restaurant and Gallery as we delve into the culture, history, and cuisine of the Jews of Lebanon and Syria. This lovely cafe setting has been a mainstay of Middle Eastern cuisine in San Diego for 35 years. And what a feast we will enjoy after Gary's talk! The buffet lunch will include all-you-can-eat among 40 -- yes 40 -- different choices. (Your organizers tried all of them!) There will be appetizers, soups, a variety of salads & sides, main dishes that include four with meat and at least one vegan or vegetarian, plus plenty of desserts. We will have pita and homemade hummus on the tables. This meal also includes a choice of iced teas or sodas. (Hot beverages are available for individual purchase.) Your RSVP and prepayment for the meal is needed by Thursday, March 13. You can pay one of two ways: 1. via PayPal using the address: https://paypal.me/JewishSecularsforFFF . You will pay $20.20 with no fees charged to our group as long as you choose "Friends and Family" when preparing your transaction. You must have a PayPal account already set up. 2. via Meetup using a credit card. You will pay $22.30 because Meetup goes through a service that charges fees. Parking can be a little challenging in this small shopping area. However, there are plenty of other small shopping areas nearby. In addition to the buffet, JewFFFrs will be treated to a gallery of original artwork and poetry by Al Nashashibi that is on display throughout the restaurant. He is one of the friendly family members who established Fairouz Cafe.
We are exploring movies due out in late March and early April. Stay tuned for our suggestions. Final details will be posted by Tuesday, April 9. We have to wait for the theaters to schedule the movie times, which they do the week before a showing.
