Join us for our Ninth Annual Christmas Social & Networking event at the Green Bean Restaurant and Pub. Once again, we have secured a great location exclusively for our own use for the evening. Each year, we forego techtalk, feeds and speeds to relax and get to know our fellow CIC members a little better. Spouses and guests are welcome to join us, but please leave your pets and under 18 children at home!
To celebrate the festive spirit, CIC’s new leadership team and a successful year in 2016, we have kept your dinner ticket cost affordable – only $45/person or $80/couple. Jackie’s team has whipped up a special package that includes appetizers, dinner, dessert and one free drink ticket (cash bar after that at special discount rates – don’t tell owners Steve or Owen!)
Reception starts at 6 pm and dinner will be served at 7 pm.
For the second year in a row, we will be having a silent auction for some fabulous items, events and gifts – so be sure to bring your cheque book. We will also be accepting donations of food and/or cash for the CBC Calgary Eyeopener Calgary Food Bank Drive.
While there is free on-street parking after hours, please read the parking restrictions carefully to avoid having your car towed during the festivities. If you prefer, there is heated, underground parking in the Core (off 4th St SW NB between 7th and 8th Avenues). If you’re using public transit, the Green Bean is on several major routes that run along 6th Ave westbound and the C-Train station is only a block away.
Please keep in mind strict drinking and driving laws are in effect and “Check Stops” will be out in force during the holiday season. So, if you choose to partake, make sure you have a designated driver, grab a taxi or take transit home! There will be plenty of coffee, tea and non-alcoholic beverages available for those choosing not to drink.
It promises to be a great evening and we look forward to seeing you on the 20th!
