Friday, December 8th: invite for Indian Night

Craft Food House is hosting Indian Night again next month and if I can fill the restaurant Friday, December 8th they will add that date and consider it a private party. Someone from Top Chef will be there that evening checking them out for a pitch to the producers.

Dinner is family style and for those who like their food nice and spicy Chef Z will make up some hot chutney on the side that you can add on your own to boost the heat!

Dinner is $35 per person, and we are the entertainment 😁 Wear your bangles and any other Indian style clothing you may have! Craft is licensed.

This is not an official NHCC event but quite a few of us have been to Craft for Tuesday morning socials as well as an earlier Indian Night and is an opportunity to make them look good and get together for some fun!  Space is limited and I already have some spaces filled so let me know ASAP if you’d like to join us. Send Maria an email via the club email address: nhcycling2010@gmail.com

And just so we won’t keep you in suspense any longer, here is your new Board of Directors!

President Extraordinaire: Debbie Parks
Vice-President: Maria Siemiaszko
Secretary: Roberto Almeida
Treasurer: Shabbir Maju
Director: Dennis Benson
Director: Raff Melito
Director: Freda Dong

We look forward to Debbie’s strong leadership as she takes the Club into 2018. She’s got a fabulous support crew around her so the NHCC is in good hands as the NHCC continues to ride for Fun, Fitness and Friendship.
