Ein Deutsches Soziales - An evening in Germany!
Richard and Barbara Little have planned a new social event titled Ein Deutsches Soziales that continues the successful date night event. Bring your other half out for an Evening in Germany at the Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain to enjoy great food and socializing with your Porsche friends. Pisgah Brewery will also be present with a tent featuring their local beers on tap for your enjoyment. The hotel bar located just inside the door will also be serving wine or other drinks of choice.
The Monte Vista Hotel listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in Black Mountain offers the perfect location for a true German Social event. The hotel and it’s restaurant "Milton’s Cuisine and Cocktails" will take you back in time when everything moved at a little slower pace and provides a special feeling hard to duplicate in today’s world.
Ein Deutsche's Soziales translates to "A German Social." It occurs on October 26, 2022 at the Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain from 5:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
For a price of $50 per person you will enjoy a three-course German-themed buffet dinner in the garden courtyard of the historical Monte Vista Hotel. Taxes and tips are included in the price but beverages are an additional expense.
Additional details on the evening, the menu and registration is available at this link.
