The first annual Marianne Ali Brunch that LDE-DC will sponsor takes place for the 111th graduating class at 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Friday, April 6 at DC Central Kitchen, 425 2nd Street, NW. We should plan on preparing at least 12 different dishes for 35 people for brunch. Click here for the link to SignUpGenius. There is space to indicate any special serving equipment needs. The kitchen will provide all beverages, plates and utensils and serving pieces and equipment. Please deliver food by 9:30 a.m. which is also when street parking near the kitchen becomes available. Dames can leave the food at the DCCK entrance (the alley loading dock), and then leave to find a parking spot. The Kitchen will try to save a few spaces in the lot, but we shouldn't count on it.
The actual graduation is scheduled for 2 o'clock that afternoon in the Navy Memorial auditorium at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC. We sincerely hope you can attend both events.
