NWSFS Announcements: February Social and The Wolfman sneak peak

Posted on behalf of Shawn Marier - NWSFS Vice Chair:

Subject: NWSFS - Pseudo Summer Solstice Spaghetti Sauce-Off!!

NWSFS Social Saturday 2/13/10 - Pseudo Summer Solstice Spaghetti Sauce-Off at the Brathouse in Kirkland. (NOTE: this is NOT on our traditional 3rd weekend.)

Please join NWSFS for our February Social, The Pseudo Summer Solstice Spaghetti Sauce - Off on Saturday, February 13, 2010, at the Brathouse at 9431 126th Ave. NE in Kirkland. The social will begin at 5 P.M. and end at 10 P.M.
In case you aren't familiar with this event, NWSFS provides spaghetti, salad, and soft drinks. Contestants bring various spaghetti sauces that you may taste and then vote on. The contributors of the most popular sauces get small prizes. If you plan to bring a sauce, please bring at least two quarts of sauce, and make some note of ingredients for those of us with food allergies or other restrictions.
If you can, please bring a crock pot to keep your sauce warm, and a ladle. If you cannot bring a crock pot, please call ahead to make arrangements for use of a burner or other equipment in the kitchen. This is still something of a potluck. Please bring a contribution of munchies, side dish, or desert. To support the contest, there is a small fee for the Sauce - Off. The fee is $3 for NWSFS members and $5 for non members. As always, NWSFS members are encouraged to attend, and non-members in the community are welcome. We hope to see you there.
At this social we be distributing copies of the 2005 Philip K. Dick Award nominated books for review at the March social (March 18, 2006) and for publication in Westwind.
Logistical information:

Smoking areas are outside. The house has cats, which are locked away for the social. The main entrance is up two small steps (ramp available). Parking is on-street, and generally available.
