Private dinners are hosted by German Village residents and celebrate the theme of the evening: Urban. Living.: A state of mind. You might be dining on a Napa Valley-inspired seven-course chef’s dinner for eight friends, or boogeying down at a poolside with Memphis BBQ for 20. The choice is yours!
Party on the Platz
This year’s POP theme is the Kentucky Derby, so grab your hats and racing silks for party with southern niceties and plenty of mint juleps. The party is an exciting alternative to a private dinner. The party is for those who want to nibble on chic hors d’oeuvres, sip signature cocktails and dance the night away. The party, held under the stars on the platz at the Meeting Haus, welcomes more than 250 guests to eat-drink-dance and be merry, so grab your friends! Four Village restaurants will supply food for POP. Our thanks to Barcelona, G. Michael’s, Pistacia Vera and Curio.
