Dear BERLIN Alumni,
Are you ready for some fun???
Word has it that there are still quite a few BERLIN alumni in the Washington, D.C. area. SOooo.- The BERLIN Brats - have decided to hold another "regional" in your area.
Yes, that's right! On Sunday, May 30 at 11 am.. We'll start the day at FreedomPark which is adjacent to the Newseum at 1101 Wilson Blvd in Arlington, VA. Freedom Park has the largest display of the BERLIN Wall outside of Germany. Behind the Wall is an original Guard Tower that once stood less than a mile from Checkpoint Charlie. We thought this would make a GREAT group photo op and give us a little feel of ol' BERLIN! Meet us at the top of the hill for a 30-minute guided tour with photos to follow. www.newseum.org/newseum/aboutthenewseum/freedompark.htm
From there we will hop on the Rosslyn metro, go 3 stops on the blue line to Pentagon City where we will hold our luncheon at "Sine".an Irish Pub & Restaurant. 1301 S. Joyce St, Arlington. Located in the plaza section of "Pentagon Row" behind the "Fashion Centre" in Pentagon City at 1 pm www.sineirishpub.com then click on the Arlington location. 703-415-4420
If you missed our recent REUNION this is your opportunity to unite with some fellow BAHSers, to learn about the BERLIN Brats, to hear about upcoming events, and to view the DVD's produced by our Reunion photographer from both the Breckenridge Reunionin '99 and our most recent Reunion in Asheville this past May.
We would like to see your memorabilia too, so please bring your yearbooks, pictures, class rings, and other memorabilia you may have in your collection. This will be a time for sharing and exchanging memories.
The luncheon will consist of seven selections that Sine's is known for. You may make your selection on arrival for a set price of $12.60 to include one entrée, a non-alcoholic drink, tax and gratuity. Payment will be collected on arrival but we do need a head count so please RSVP by Friday, May 21st.
As those of you who know the DC Metro area well, parking is at a premium. We would suggest you start the day by parking at Pentagon City, metro over to Rosslyn (Freedom Park) and then metro back over with the entire group to Sine's.
If you are interested in attending please RSVP by MAY 21st to The BERLIN Brats at: BERLINBrats@gmail.com Or (623)551-1105
Please include your full name (including maiden), your class year and be sure to include the name of any guest(s) you may be bringing.
