[SOLD-OUT] - Holiday Dinner at Luca Bistro


Celebrate the season at restaurant Luca Bistro, and bring a gift to participate in the White Elephant.

Chef Frederic Maniet, a native of Vaucluse, France will welcome our guest in his cozy restaurant bathed in French decor, with a plethora of posters and items from France.

Gourmet dinner and 2 glasses of wine at Luca Bistro in Mt. Adams.

  • Frisée and endives salad with Roquefort, walnuts and cranberries
  • Seafood Bouchée à la Reine
  • Chicken roast with mushroom Riesling sauce, rate potatoes and broth vegetables.
  • Iced nougat with wild berry coulis

Vegetarian option is available upon request.

  • Cocktails 6 to 7 pm
  • Dinner  7 pm
  • Gift Exchange 8 pm

We will ‘jazz up’ the AF holiday party with a White Elephant fun twist. If you would like to participate (this is completely optional), bring a small gift (price limit around $20). Gifts shall be related to French, France, Francophonie or International Friendship in some way. Each player brings one wrapped gift and will get a gift in return. Wrapping is a key part of the fun, the larger the box surely does not mean the larger the present! Players draw numbers to determine their order of play. The player with the highest number goes first, selects a gift from the pool and opens it. The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift from the pool or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen in this way can do the same – choose a new gift or steal from someone else.

  • A present can only be stolen once per round;
  • Players who have a gift stolen from them cant’ take it back. They can take a new gift from the pool or steal from someone else.
  • Each gift can only be stolen twice. The gift goes to the third person holding it.

Parking is available in the St. Gregory Street garage, around Playhouse in the Park (since it's closed for renovations) and at parking meters. Deadline to RSVP is December 1.
