Holiday Salon 2003 at The Forbidden City

Monday, December 8th, 2003

You are invited to one of Hollywood’s hottest Holiday Parties…the Nebraska Coast Connection’s 2003 Holiday Salon!  NEXT Monday…December 8th…(that’s one week away!), we’ll be gathering at a restaurant & nightclub in Hollywood…The Forbidden City.

From 8pm to Midnight, The Forbidden City will host our party in their sexy V.I.P. Room with Chinese appetizers, full bar and live music.  This great club is in the heart of Hollywood, near Hollywood & Vine, just south of Capital Records.  Want to see photos of the V.I.P. Room at Forbidden City?  http://www.forbiddencityla.com

It will be a festive time with all your NCC friends, plus sing-along caroling, a visit from Santa, and other surprises.  Top musicians will be dropping in to play LIVE for us, including Chett Gunhus, Jake Policky, Brad Colerick, Charlie Hull and more.

The Holiday Salon will cost a little more than normal–we’re asking ten bucks instead of the normal five, but this will include a drink from the full bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres, plus the swanky decor and live entertainment.  (As always, don’t not attend because of the price.  If you are a little short this month–email us and we’ll work out a deal.  We want you here!)  Discounted $5 valet parking will be available at the club, or park on the street or in one of the nearby Hollywood lots (like the one by the Metro station across from the Pantages Theatre on Hollywood).

Yes, non-Nebraskans are always welcome–invite your friends.  Please RSVP on the hotline ASAP: (213) 368-4NCC.   Or email a quick response to howdy@nebraskacoast.com.  (Even if you are on the regular CBS Salon list, please call or email us–we need a count for the restaurant!)  Looking forward to seeing you at the Holiday Salon!

CAROLING….CAROLING…CAROLING…

On Sunday, December 7th, from 4pm into the evening… It’s a tradition!  Every year, a bunch of NCCers join Vince Leinen and his musician friends at an afternoon of caroling at nursing homes in the Valley.  This is an amazing time with professional and amateur singers–including a number of big celebrities–bringing cheer to wildly appreciative crowds.  You can join in part or all of the locales, and they host a big party afterward that is not to be missed.  Check their website at www.ReachForTheStars.com/caroling/ or call Vince Leinen at (818)-342-9336 for details.

Mark your new calendars…2004 Salon dates are:  Jan 12, Feb 9, Mar 8, Apr 12, May 10, Jun 14, Jul 12, Aug 9, Sep 13, Oct 11, Nov 8, Dec 13.  Hollywood Salons are always on the SECOND MONDAY of the month.
