Supper Club - Il Capriccio

We don't always have a Supper Club get-together in December with all the other events demanding our attention. But last year we had such a great time, and turnout at Il Capriccio, that we thought we'd book it again. 

We'll dine on Tuesday, December 17, at Il Capriccio in Whippany, in one of their private rooms. As we experienced last year the food, service, and ambiance all rated the five stars that Il Capriccio regularly receives. This is guaranteed to be a lovely Holiday evening. 

Il Capriccio

633 Route 10 East Whippany, NJ 973-884-9175

Balantine House Tour

Balantine House Tour- December 27th


The holidays are in full swing at the Ballantine House, our 1885 Victorian home in the heart of Newark, NJ. This tour offers visitors a taste of how Christmas was celebrated in late Victorian Newark, as English, German and Dutch holiday traditions merged into something not so very different from the way the holiday is celebrated in America today. From the Christmas tree (a German tradition) to the wooden shoes by the hearth (a Dutch tradition) to the stockings on the chimney and plum pudding in the dining room (English traditions), visitors can get a sense of how Christmas evolved into a home-based secular holiday in the 19th century.  

The tour will be followed by lunch at a local restaurant.

Mah Jongg

We're looking for more players on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 12:30!

Similar to the card game rummy, mahjongg is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation. It involves a degree of chance, and, as in most games, a good deal of luck in drawing good tiles to reach your goal.


We have an existing, experienced Mahjongg group, but we are looking to start a new group.
