You're Invited: A Côte d'Azur Thanksgiving

Once again, the American Club of the Riviera will celebrate Thanksgiving in Monaco, with a gala luncheon starting at 12:30 on Thursday, November 27. The event is open to all...and members of the US Air Force will be hosted (and toasted!) as the special guests of honor. The menu is, of course, an American feast of turkey and all the trimmings...with a Champagne reception to kick things off. As the usual venue, the Hotel de Paris, is closed for renovations, the event will take place in the splendid Salon Belle Epoque of its sister hotel, the Hermitage. Somewhere between 150 to 200 people are expected.

Full details (including pricing, directions, parking and reservations) are on the group's website hereQuestions? Contact Burton Gintell: +33 (0)6 20 40 11 28,
