The Second Annual NYC Marines “Mess Night”
The Annual New York City Marines “Mess Night” will take place this year on June 30th, 2009.
The New York City Marines will host their second annual “Mess Night” at the New York Athletic Club. The event will help raise funds for the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation and the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction.
“Mess Night” is a recreation of the historic “Mess Night” event held on Saturday March 20th, 1920 and attended by Sir Winston Churchill. The posh event originally took place at Oddenino’s Imperial Restaurant on Regent Street in London and featured classic dishes such as “Poule au Pot Alexandra” and “Culotte de Boeuf Imperial”.
This year’s Mess Night will offer guests a feast of historic delicacies and green tea cocktails. The evening, while formal, promises to be fun as well – with $1-and-up fines for violating the strictly enforced guidelines of the mess (including: chewing gum, swearing and discussing politics, shop, money or religion!). All fines are donated to the featured charities of course.
