"Big Night" Dinner - Friday, April 27

Building on the success of our Robert Burns Supper celebrating the food, music and culture of Scotland, the U. Club Foundation will host a "Big Night Dinner" on Friday, April 27, celebrating the music, culture and food (yes, there will be Timpano!) of Italy.

Arrive at 5:30 for cocktails, appetizers and music inspired by the movie (prosecco, chianti, martinis, antipasto, poached salmon, crostini).

Enjoy the swingin' sounds of the late 1950s, and feel free to dress as you would have to go out to a nice dinner in NYC in the era of The Rat Pack. Gloves and costume jewelry for the ladies, skinny ties and slick hair for the gents... Dressing the part is optional but encouraged!

Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. and our Italian chef Kevin Pagano will recreate some of the traditional dishes featured in the movie - baked chicken, fish, risotto, roasted vegetables, and - of course - Timpano.

Tickets are $40 per person, $75 for two, and include appetizers, dinner, desserts and coffee/tea. A portion of the proceeds benefit the University Club Foundation, so tickets may be purchased with cash or check (drinks may be charged to member accounts.)

Non-member guests are welcome - the more the merrier! This event is sponsored by the University Club of Albany Foundation.The Foundation is a 501c3 corporation formed to recognize and maintain the unique historic and architectural significance of the National Register-listed University Club building, its historic neighborhood and the city of Albany, where it has been located since its inception in 1901.
