On February 18 the DC area “Bonn Supper Club” met for a night of fabulous pasta, amazing desserts and (as always) great conversation and funny stories at the gorgeous home of Debbie Marling Mellis. The Bonn Supper Club began about a year or two ago and we get together every month or two for a potluck dinner, each one with a special theme - fondue, a chili cook off, brats & beer, New Years and this time, an Italian Pasta Bar. And of course beer, wine and other adult beverages. And after a couple of those beverages, the stories pour out.
Remember the tour of Mosel Valley wineries we took in 7th grade? Wait - we went on one of those in 9th grade too - can you believe they put 12 and 14-year olds on a bus to go drink wine for a weekend?? How about the enterprising alum from the 60s who had a thriving business “re-purposing” booze from the Commissary? He sold it to high school students who took the bus to Wiesbaden every week - out of his basement storage room. And those ski trips… just remember that what happens in Hinterglen stays in Hinterglen!
If anyone plans a trip to the DC area let us know - we’ll celebrate your visit with another edition of the Bonn Supper Club!
