Beaconsfield, VIC  3807

Hosted by Inner Wheel and the Rotary Club of Berwick

Mystery Progressive Dinner

Saturday 25th May, 2019 at 6.30pm

Members and partners of the Inner Wheel and Rotary Clubs of Berwick are invited to participate in this highly popular event. The way it works:

For this to work, all participants must be prepared to host a course with accompanying drinks. Fancy cooking is NOT a pre-requisite, the company, and getting to know people in the privacy and ambience of our homes is the reward for the evening. Pre-purchased food is quite acceptable for those not confident in the kitchen.

Nominated couples prepare an entree course with accompanying drinks for three couples. At 6.00pm, two couples arrive at their home, and the 6 sit down for entree/soup course. At 6.45pm, the hosts open an envelope and let everyone know where each couple is to head off for main course. (One or two of these couples may be going back home to serve main course to their mystery guests).

At 7.15pm two couples will arrive at the nominated main course home and the 6 different people will enjoy main course together with accompanying drinks. At 8.15 the next envelope will be opened to let these three couples know where each is headed for dessert course.

At 8.45pm two couples will arrive at the nominated dessert course home to share dessert course together and at 9.30pm the final envelope will be opened to announce where everybody participating will congregate for coffee/tea.

At 10pm everyone will arrive at the final home for tea/coffee, chocolates and reminiscences about where they have been all evening and who they have socialised with.

If you are single and do not have a friend to partner up with, the organisers can either partner you up with someone, or we can slot single people in.

If you wish to participate in this fun event, please be aware that a lot of juggling by the organisers goes into fitting all participants into the homes, so a firm commitment is required so that other participants are not disappointed if you fail to turn up and host a course on the night.

Please fill in the accompanying sheet with your names, which course you would prefer to serve (some adjustments may need to be made according to demand), and how many you can accommodate around your dining table, in case we don’t have equal numbers of participants, and mobile number for communication if required. Please send the details on the accompanying sheet to kayandgeoffrankin@bigpond.com

Envelopes stating which course you will be hosting, where you will be going for entree (not to be opened before 5pm on the day) and containing destinations for your guests (not to be opened before the guests are present in your home), will be distributed to you approximately one week before the event. Please do not discuss what course you are hosting with others before the event. The element of surprise is a great part of the fun. RSVP by 11th May
