Celebrate the holiday season with dinner and dancing

Dodie Prescott

The first Quail Creek Ballroom Dance Club dinner dance is scheduled in the Crystal Ballroom on Wednesday, December 14. The chandeliers will be sparkling, the tables will be decorated and the Tom Patrick Band will be playing at 5:30 p.m. Dancing will continue for an hour before a delicious dinner is served for our enjoyment. What a wonderful way to spend a pre-Christmas evening with friends.

Dinner will be at the Edible Canada Restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver, British Colombia highlighting the talents of Chef Cabrera and his staff with a meal featuring modern Canadian cuisine with the best food and wine from across Canada.

The meal begins with a Canadian Tabouli salad followed by a choice of wild salmon with maple-glazed pork belly or marinated flank steak with cilantro-lemon grass chimichurri. Dinner concludes with a maple Crème Brule. The band returns after dinner to play wonderful dance selections for members and guests until 9:30 p.m.

The Ballroom Dance Club has three and four dance memberships available and non-member guests are always welcome to attend these events to socialize with friends and neighbors. You don’t have to know how to ballroom dance to enjoy the wonderful gourmet meals and listen to the big band music.

If you would like to be part of this elegant evening and are not already a member of the club, please contact Membership Chair Justine Lewis at 399-4646 or [email protected] by December 1 for reservations. For more information about the club, visit the website at http://quailcreekballroomdance.com.
