Carol's Holiday Party
Join 400 of my "close personal friends" at this annual charity Holiday Party, to be held on Saturday December 7th. It may seem weird to attend a party at the home of someone you don't know, but I sincerely DO hope you all will be there. It is truly open to all of the wonderful women AND men of Houston's GLBT community. The party is an opportunity to meet new friends, and reconnect with old ones at the most festive home party of the year!
This year's beneficiary is Creating Change Houston 2014. Creating Change is the largest annual gathering of GLBT activists, visionaries and planners, and the conference will be held in Houston in January of 2014. Proceeds from my party will help support the costs associated with hosting the event.
The party sponsors (so far) include Tito's Handmade Vodka, Blue Moon Beer, Crispin Hard Apple Cider, Budweiser/Silver Eagle, Barefoot Wines, Handy Chicks and Red Bull.
The suggested donation is $35, which includes open bar and a bountiful selection of hot and cold appetizers. You can make your donation at the door, or here via credit card or PayPal.
This year's menu includes:
* Smoked pork tenderloin with Texas chutney
* Mushrooms stuffed with spicy sausage or spinach souffle
* Spicy shrimp shooters
* Devilish eggs
* Pepper boats with olive feta tapenade
* Artichoke jalapeno dip
* Asparagus, snow peas & baby carrots w/ tzatziki dip
* Avocado feta salsa
* Bourbon chicken
* Buffalo chicken dip
* Cheesy poofs with spicy mustard
* Assorted desserts
To make it easier to meet people, each guest selects a glow-in-the-dark bracelet. An index chart explains what each color means:
* You're too late. I'm already taken.
* Well, I came with someone but I'd consider a better offer.
* I'm single but selective - at least until midnight.
* I've lowered my standards. If you're breathing, you'll do.
* I am NOT making a statement. I am just accessorizing.
And we also provide Conversation Cards, an optional tool for creating stimulating conversations. Whether you discuss your favorite childhood snacks or whether you'd rather be lucky or good, the cards will provide hundreds of interesting topics to inspire your gift of gab.
The event features a full open bar and tons of great food.
PARKING: There is street parking in my neighborhood, but this year I've also arranged for a park and shuttle lot only 2 blocks from my house. You can park at Harris Academy, 3130 Holder Forest, and our brightly decorated shuttle van will whisk you to the party. The vans will run continuously from 8 pm to 2 am. A uniformed security guard will be stationed at the shuttle lot for the duration of the party. Here's a link for the map which shows my house and the shuttle parking lot: http://www.socialnoteshouston.com/house_map.html
I'm looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces on Dec.7th! If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
