Eurocircle’s Chistmas Village Get-Together

Let’s get together at the Christmas Village, eat some raclette ❤️ grab a beer or cider, and do some holiday shopping. I propose noon as a good time to start. If you are in, say so below. This year’s Christmas Village has more food choices and an enclosed beer garden.

I’ll announce the meeting point when we have a group. Who’s in? email Sherry at philadelphia (at) eurocircle (dot) com

Philadelphia- Nov 04 2018

Autumn Hike

Let’s enjoy fall foliage, crisp weather and Philly’s most beautiful hiking trails, with a Eurocircle hike in the Wissahickon. We will meet in front of the Valley Green Inn. Depending on how many people show up, we may break off into 2 groups. We will choose the trail depending on skill level of attendees.

**Please be advised that this is the most popular time to hike here, so parking will be limited. Give yourself extra time to find a parking spot. I aim to park early in front of Valley Green Inn. The entry point is off Ridge Avenue, down Wises Mill Road. You may have to park near Ridge Avenue, and walk down into the park.
Also, the lots are not paved here, and SUV or an Uber might be the way to go.

What to bring: Hiking shoes, water/snacks.
I haven’t planned a post hike lunch/brunch. If anyone has suggestions, please message me.

“December 1913, Italy. A man arrives in Florence, after a 16 hour journey. He checks into a small, run down hotel. He is here for a secret meeting with two of Italy’s greatest art experts, and he has something extraordinary to sell- the world’s most famous painting, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. The Mona Lisa had disappeared from the Louvre two years earlier. It was one of the most incredible art heists in history. It involved a police investigation across Europe, a possible forgery scam in America, and even the arrest of Pablo Picasso. Pablo was petrified, he was about to be deported”…… Find out what happens next, at our live talk with Joe Madeiros, of Late Night with Jay Leno.

Our speaker is none other than funny man Joe Madeiros, head comedy writer of Late Night With Jay Leno. His career began with a correspondence comedy course in joke writing, when he landed a gig on America’s favorite late night talk show. So how did he track down the thief who stole the world’s most famous painting?

Join EuroCircle and our programming partner, the Geographical Society of Philadelphia as we bring you a night of comedy, intrigue, and mystery solving with Joe Madeiros in person. After the presentation, join EuroCircle co-hostess Valeria Khmelnitsky (Ukraine) for drinks in the Northern Liberties. (Exact location TBD).
