Houston – February 07 2013

In the Rhineland, Weiberfastnacht (Women’s Karnevals Night) marks the beginning of the “tollen Tage” (crazy days) or street karneval. That day the women get to enjoy the evening out with their friends in bars and pubs of the old town centers while their husbands take care of the kids.

The Wiever Fastelovend starts traditionally with a pack of women storming the city hall at 11.11am, and taking over the keys of the city, as men are incapable to govern for the next five days.

To recreate the Karneval of Germany and specially the one from the Rhineland Charivari Restaurant will offer a three course menue that reflects foods from the Rhineland. During the evening typical “Karnevalsmusik” will be played in the restaurant and some people may feel tempted to “schunkeln” (dancing style typical for Karneval), cutting neck ties of the gentlemen, even though that may mean to give a “buetze” (peck on the cheek) as compensation, or do other hideous activities typical of the Karneval.

Since it’s a sit-down dinner hosted by Charivari, EuroCircle will reserve seating ahead of time. Stay tuned for an RSVP-by date. It will be first-come first-serve with limited seating.

Houston – June 21 2012

EuroCircle Houston is co-hosting its June get-together with the Texas Young Professionals (TYP) and the World Affairs Council.

Join us at Remington Bar in the St. Regis Hotel on June 21st from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

A well-known Houston bar, Remington Bar that offers sophisticated nightlife and high-end mixology. As written in the’s Low-Down: “If only walls could talk. At The Remington Bar, stories abound about the two decades worth of corporate moguls, high-priestesses of society and international A-list celebrities, intellectuals and royals who have made this cosmopolitan lounge their Houston salon. And while the plush booths and cozy, art-filled side rooms invite scintillating private conversations, live music on the weekends draws people onto the dance floor.

Housed in the elegant St. Regis Hotel, the Remington takes advantage of the hotel’s culinary acumen by offering a menu that incorporates classic European bistro panache with the imagination of New American cuisine. The juicy hamburgers would satisfy any cattle baron – but first, try one of the bar’s signature infused-vodka martinis. Think 1920s Algonquin with a contemporary Texas twist.”

Be sure to invite your friends and co-workers to our largest event yet!
