For the sixth consecutive year, HAD will hold a minibanquet on the Monday evening of the joint AAS/HAD meeting in January. We originally called it a minibanquet to distinguish it from the AAS Banquet, which was much larger, more expensive, and more formal. Now the AAS Banquet is no more, but the HAD minibanquet lives on.
George's Greek Cafe, 135 Pine Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802. Phone (562) 437-1184. This is where we had our minibanquet in 2009, about a four-block walk from the Convention Center.
Monday, 7 January 2013. Drinks and conversation at 6:30. Sit down to dine family style at 7:00.
The following will be served family style (starred dishes are vegetarian):
Humus & Tzantziki (yogurt, cucumber, etc.) dip*
Saganaki (pan-seared Greek cheese)*
Greek Style Rice*
Vege-dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with rice, tomato, and spices)*
Kleftico (slow roasted lamb special)
Pastitso (A lasagna-like dish of pasta, spiced ground beef, and a creamy Béchamel sauce.)
