SHAD ROE DINNER
MONDAY, APRIL 11, 2016
One of the Wolfe Pack’s oldest traditions is back! This spring, we will share again in Nero Wolfe’s enjoyment of shad roe as one of his chef’s signature dishes. Additional menu options will be the Archie Alternative of rotisserie chicken, and the Vegetarian Alternative of vegetable risotto.
The 2016 Shad Roe Dinner will be held on Monday, April 11, 2016 at Café Centro, located in the MetLife Building (former Pan Am building) at East 45th Street and Park Avenue. We will meet at the Cafe Centro Bar (cash bar) at 5:45 p.m. and sit down to dinner at 6:30 p.m.
Cost for the Shad Roe Dinner is $55.00 including gratuity but excluding drinks. The event is open only to Wolfe Pack members and guests. Click here for membership information.
The evening will also feature the traditional Isaac Asimov Memorial Limerick Contest. Attendees may read their limericks at the dinner and prizes will be awarded. (If you cannot attend the dinner but wish to submit a limerick, please send it to email@example.com by April 4, 2016.)
Please send registration form including your dinner choice of shad roe, rotisserie chicken, or vegetable risotto, with check for $55.00 per attendee payable to the Wolfe Pack to be received by March 28, 2016. If there are any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
MEDIA EVENT REPRISE
MONDAY, MAY 2, 2016
Wolfeans will gather for an evening of video and audio clips featuring author Rex Stout and his creation, Nero Wolfe. Highlights include interviews of Rex Stout on The Dick Cavett Show and Book Beat as well as other video and audio clips featuring Mr. Stout and his family. Also included are extensive video and audio excerpts of television and radio adaptations of the Nero Wolfe stories from Italy, Germany, Russia, and the United States. The media clips total about two and one-half hours.
Wolfe Pack Media Night will be held at Pete’s Tavern, East 18th Street at Irving Place, on Monday, May 2, 2016, beginning at 6:30 p.m. A hot buffet dinner will be served. The cost is $45.00 including gratuity and open bar. (limited to beer, wine & soft drinks). Attendance is open only to Wolfe Pack members and guests.
Note – this Media Night evening was first held as part of the Black Orchid Banquet weekend in December. The very popular event was oversubscribed and hence we are offering a reprise of it this spring. Due to capacity limitations of the room, attendance will be strictly limited to 35 people.
Please send registration form with check for $45.00 per attendee payable to the Wolfe Pack to be received by April 25, 2016. [Registration may close sooner depending on availability. Sign up early so you’re not shut out!] If there are any questions, please e-mail email@example.com.
RESEARCH TRIP TO BOSTON
Many of Rex Stout’s papers – including the original manuscripts for most of the Nero Wolfe novels and novellas and extensive files of correspondence with his publishers, editors, and fans – are archived at the Burns Library of Boston College. In June 2016, members of the Wolfe Pack will again visit the library to conduct research in these files. Our previous visit to this archive in 2011 yielded a variety of interesting discoveries. Depending on attendance and interest, the trip may also include a Wolfean themed dinner to be shared with our New England area members and a tour of Boston. Dates for this event will be announced soon. If you are interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
