Behind the scenes, the club kitchen staff is preparing for the gourmet spread they provide every year. The menu consists of a carving station with turkey and beef and a seafood station with cocktail shrimp, lobster crostini’s, sushi and smoked salmon. A variety of artisan breads and gourmet cheeses will be served to complement a number of wine varietals. Hors d’oeuvres of all kinds, vegetarian options and a selection of desserts will also be served.
Wines are available for purchase, as well as a number of gift sets AAFES offers. Wright-Patterson AFB engraved bottles will be on hand for that special occasion.
Blanton’s, an award-winning bourbon made by the Buffalo Trace Distillery, is popular with bourbon connoisseurs alike. This bourbon is so popular that acquiring a bottle is not easy, but a few may be available that evening.
Those not wanting to drink wine will have access to a full bar and can partake in a few bourbon tastings.
Tickets are available for purchase at either AAFES or the Wright-Patt Club. Pricing for tickets are $45 for club members and $55 for non-members. After Oct. 4, pricing rises to $55 for club members and $65 for non-members. Must be 21 years or older to attend.
