Saturday, December 3, 2016: The Cliff Dwellers Third Annual Holiday Candlelight Dinner

The Cliff Dwellers is a magical place to be at night with our views of the City lights and even more so when the Club is decorated for the Holidays.

Members are invited to start off the Holidays by coming to the Club for the Third Annual Holiday Candlelight Dinner.  This special evening will begin with cocktail service beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Chef Victor’s Special Holiday Dinner, which will include Flaming Baked Alaska, will be served at 7:00 p.m.

Holiday music will be played during cocktails, intermittently during, and after dinner while after dinner, drinks are served and members enjoy conversation.

The price for this special dinner is $55 per person – drinks are extra.  Reservations are required by Thursday, December 1 and should be made by e-mail.

Wednesday, December 14 – Opening Reception for Tim Samuelson’s Whole House Exhibition “The Last Days of Louis Sullivan” & Recruitment Event for Members of the CSO

Doors and bar open at 4:00.  The Reception officially begins at 5:00.  Our special guests for this reception are the members of the CSO.  This event is an opportunity to reestablish a relationship between the CSO and the Club which effectively ended when the Club had to leave its space on the top of Symphony Hall.

Members wishing to have dinner at the Club should make reservations.

Friday, December 16 – Annual Members Holiday Lunch

The festivities will begin at 11:30.  Chef Victor will be serving a Fabulous Cliff Dweller Luncheon Buffet.  This is an opportunity to have lunch and share holiday cheer with fellow Club members.

The cost for the Buffet is $35.  Drinks from the bar are optional.   Members are strongly encouraged to make reservations.  

Reminder:  Members are reminded that the Holiday Staff Christmas Fund is distributed to Staff during the Holiday Lunch.  Contributions to the Fund can be charged to House Accounts – e-mail your request to add your contribution to your House Account to Elizabeth Zaverdas – .  Since gratuities are not added to your food and beverage charges, this is how members traditionally show their appreciation to our wonderful staff but especially to our wait staff.  

Saturday, December 17:  Children’s Party for Members Children and Grandchildren 

Annual Children’s Holiday Party features holiday entertainment and food that children of all ages will enjoy.

The Party begins at 11:30.  The cost for adults is $25 while the cost for children 12 and under is $12.  Reservations are required.

Tuesday, December 20 to Thursday, December 22 – Holiday Week

With Christmas so late this year, the Club will be open during Holiday Week to give members the opportunity to bring visiting family and friends to the Club to enjoy the holiday decorations and our spectacular views of the City.  During Holiday Week, the Club will be serving Family Lunches and Holiday Dinners.

Family Lunches:   During Holiday Week, members are invited to bring their families and friends to the Club for lunch.  Reservations are strongly encouraged.

Holiday Dinner Service:  Holiday Week is the perfect time for members to come to the Club for dinner and let Chef Victor do the cooking.  This is the time to host dinners at the Club and share our amazing views with family and friends. Holiday Week dinner reservations must be made by Friday, December 16.

Members may bring young children and grandchildren for lunch or dinner during Holiday Week.  Chef Victor’s holiday menu will include some special items just for children.

During Holiday Week, the Club will close each day at 2 pm if no dinner reservations have been made for that night. 

The Club will be closed starting on Friday, December 23 and will not re-open until Monday, January 9.
