Christmas Gift Exchange

  • Dec 15, 2012 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, every where the Sisters go.."

There are no openings, 11/28/12!  If you're viewing MSK events via I-phone, Android, or other super phone, you are NOT viewing the complete details. pls. visit the actual MSK site, for instructions.

If you've recently rsvped,--contact me w/your payment and entree choices ASAP--let there be 30 of us dancing on tables, and playing slightly risky games to win exciting new, dazzling gifts!  Your guiding angel, driving miss darcy.

In keeping with a December MSK tradition of greeting new friends, and well-wishing women we already know, lunching, laughing,  and conversing,  we will partcipate in a "secret" Santa gift exchange:  Please bring a little something gift for approximately $20. Please wrap your gift. You may write your real name, and "from your secret Santa," on an enclosure card.  This elf has been asked before, and for you very busy Mrs. Santas, yes, a gift card is an acceptable "fun" exchange gift.  If you're plumb out of ideas, Victoria's Secret has gift boxes for that price, and all the bath and beauty stores have have a few of our favorite things!  There are lovely, costume, vintagey jewelry pieces for that price, too.

Our venue is the classic Taix French Restaurant, where we can celebrate in our own elegant Club room! Our private suite is the photo in the center. 

Prix fixe menu: Each guest will receive plenty of fresh French baguettes; an Organic green salad w/ house vinagrette; choice of either rice or potato, a dessert sherbert, and sodas, iced or hot teas or coffees. Total price includes both tax and tip.

Parking right on restaurant lot is $2.50 for as long as we want to stay and celebrate.  There is also street parking along Sunset Blvd.

 

Entree options: please list your choice inside your rsvp!

1) lean pot roast served w/ a Bordelaise sauce;

2) boneless breast of chicken diablo: grilled with lemon, butter, white wine, mustard, garlic, shallots, & capers;

3) filet of sole Meuniere: sauteed, w/ a lemon butter cream sauce;

4) for our vegetarians: Pasta Monegasque: penne pasta w/ tomatoes, garlic, basil,  and olive oil.

5) There's a full bar @ Taix, and any alcoholic drinks will be paid on separate tabs.

Tips for bartender would be appropriate, and are not included in our prix-fixe. We will have a tip jar, also, for busboys and kitchen staff, for those of us who feel merrily inclined to thank them. Included in our prix fixe are the gratuity for our personal waiter, and all taxes.

Navigating Pay Pal: Darcy's Pay Pal account is: [masked]. Be sure to click "send money," then click the "personal" tab, and chose "payment owed," so that no service charge is deducted.  Also, if you are paying through an account or email that differs from your rsvped MSK name, there's a Note section on Pay Pal, where you may let me know who you are, and also, in that note portion, please indicate that this money is for the Xmas Gift Exchange.  Don't miss the "note" section of Pay Pal.

Writing driving miss darcy a check?  email me & I'll send you my address.  To ensure your "yes" status, I'll expect the check three days after you email me. Thank you.

With the details out of the way, let's make some noise, kick up our heels, (perhaps for our singers) belt out a few Christmas carols (on or off key! ha ha ha! or maybe not...)  style Aunt Harriet's hand-knitted Christmas sweater, or glam it up, and celebrate our unique MSK friendships during the Holidays.

    Had a wonderful time!! Enjoyed meeting new sisters and catching up with those I haven't seen for awhile. It was my second time at Taix, a lovely restaurant. The food was great! I do believe I may have eaten a couple of baskets of that delicious bread by myself. The gift exchange was so much fun...Thank you Darcy and Dee and Kay for a delightful event!! I agree with Erica...MSK Rocks!! Happy Holidays!!

Your organizer's refund policy for Christmas Gift Exchange

Refunds offered if:

  • you can cancel at least 14 day(s) before the Meetup

Additional notes: Taix management requires that we provide them with an exact entree count 14 days before event. Holiday season & private rooms, and good prices like these, are difficult to come by. We know stuff happens, however, no refunds after December 1, 2012.

Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.

Regardless of the refund policy set by the organizer, Meetup may issue refunds on an organizer's behalf if we determine that Meetup's Payment Policies have been violated.
