TICKET DEADLINE WAS WED, OCT 3RD.Looking for a fabulous way to spend an otherwise humdrum Tuesday? Plan now to join all your friends at the annual Combined Women’s Luncheon on Tuesday, October 9th as the AWC hosts “The Rip Roaring Twenties~Puttin’ on the Ritz!”

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit
Shopping starts 9:30
Lunch served 11:30
Ticket Cost: 1,600 baht/person
We’ll gather at the beautiful new Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit. There will be loads of vendors starting at 9:30am so arrive early to cash in on the best bargains before they’re sold out! Then stay for dining, drinking and dancing Roaring Twenties style!
Speaking of style, you’re encouraged to get in the spirit by dressing in period attire! Isn’t it fun to play dress up for a day?! Come as a flapper adorned with pearls, fringe and feathers! “Smart Casual” is also perfectly acceptable, but be sure to embellish yourself with a long strand of costume pearls or a feather boa! Need other ideas? Start by Googling “1920s attire”. Then click on images and you’ll find all sorts of photographs. A dress can be made here in Thailand, and there are some that can be quickly ordered from the US.
During our research of the Twenties, we discovered many epicurean delights that were all the rage, so we have an amazing four-course menu of popular period dishes which will be served up family style. There will be several vegetarian options, so everyone will be pleased.
