The afternoon's feature was a very interesting lecture by Dr. Libby O'Connell, an executive at The History Channel, on the cuisine of the Gilded Days (late 19th century). As usual, the session was well-attended, with many first-time guests registering for membership after the meeting.
Members brought goodies to snack on for the afternoon tea. It was great to see old friends again after our long absence from meetings. I got the chance to briefly talk about CHOP. I try to attend their meetings whenever I'm in D.C.
