Menu for Bright Shawl

Some have asked, so here is the menu for the Bright Shawl, where we will meet May 1:

There is a daily encore plate that includes a hot entree and soup/salad bar for $10.95/person.  The daily encore is different every day and we won't know the day's selection until we arrive on May 1.  If a guest doesn't want to order the daily encore, all items on the tea room menu are available.

Buen provecho!

Special Event Luncheon--Honoring Penn's Association of Alumnae, May 1

This is my reminder to all of San Antonio's Penn alumni--not just our women--that we're gathering at the Bright Shawl on May 1 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Association of Alumnae at Penn.  All of us have a lot to be proud of in the accomplishments of Penn women of San Antonio, but in a broader sense we're taking the moment along with Penn clubs worldwide, to mark this anniversary.  I hope many of you can join us.  Please let Sheila Mayfield know by April 29 if you plan to attend.

I've repeated Sheila's e-mail blast here for your reference. 
Ps. I'm told the Bright Shawl has a new and excellent chef and menu.

See you there!


Please join us for lunch at the Bright Shawl on Wednesday, May 1 at 11:30 AM to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Association of Alumnae.  Every woman that is a Penn Alum is a member of the Association of Alumnae, and we have a lot to be proud of in San Antonio and beyond!  The Association of Alumnae has done much to promote the tradition of women serving Penn and looks forward to meeting the needs of Penn women in the twenty-first century.

Our luncheon…

Hey Day 2013, April 24

Today was Hey Day--remember what that means?

I'll confess I needed a reminder:  It marks the day when juniors move up to become the senior class.  I don't remember the business about eating the imitation boaters!

Penn Alumni and Others Enjoy Wine Tasting

The Penn Alumni Club hosted a Wine and Food Pairing at Jo-Anne Kaplan's house led by wine expert Melina Mastrojohn of HEB on Saturday, March 23.  There were five different pairings:  a Prosecco with fruit kebobs, grilled vegetables and pasta with a Sauvignon Blanc, spicy Mac & Cheese and Spicy Chipotle Shrimp en brochette with a Chardonnay, chocolate pots de creme with a Merlot and Angel Food Cake with Raspberry Coulis paired with a sparkling Moscato.  For those of us who love to eat well, it was fun to learn how the flavors of food can be enhanced by the correct wine.
