This Member Mixer is hosted by: Silicon Valley Capital Club AND the Special Events Council

Before Lent starts there are always the festivities of Mardi Gras...and here at the Club there'll be no exception to that -- we will have a couple fun things for you to participate in!

First the Special Events Council will be sponsoring a festive Mardi Gras mixer on Wednesday February 6th. Come wearing your favorite Mardi Gras mask and participate in our mask judging contest ... prizes will be lovely works of art courtesy of the Carla Almanza-decant Gallery. Carla is a Venetian mask maker extraordinaire! Don't have a mask? No problem, Carla will have some of her lovely creations available for you to purchase and the Club will have beads and masks galore!

The food will be festive Cajun style and the bar will feature a New Orleans theme drink which will be discounted to those wearing their mask.

Continue the festivities on Tuesday, February 12th with the Culinary Council's "Carnevale of Falvor", a Venetian theme dinner. Don your mask once again and join in a scrumptious Venetian Italian meal complemented by some delightful Italian wines. The evening will be enhanced as Carla Almanza-deQuant shares with you some of the secrets and intricacies of Venetian mask making. Space is very limited for this festive evening so make sure you get your reservations 408.971.9300 ($55++ per person)
