To celebrate the Heroes of Bavaria at LeMay, America’s Car Museum, we’ll be having a Winter Party on January 26, 2019, Saturday evening. This will be much like our banquets of years gone by but without an auction.
The cars are the spectacular Heroes of Bavaria, representing BMW race cars from the 1930s to the 2010s. There will be 17 cars on display. Noted local collector, Peter Gleeson, will be talking about the history of each car. Meanwhile, you’ll be able to enjoy heavy appetizers from Carr’s Catering and a full bar. We’ll have some seating for those who want to sit and bistro tables for those who want to stand or walk around.
There will not be a raffle or auction. The evening is intended to be a relatively informal meeting of BMW enthusiasts to witness this amazing gathering of BMW race cars. While it will certainly be dark, might well be cold and even rainy, we’ll be warm inside the Museum with its beautiful backdrop of the Tacoma skyline. And of course, we’ll be able to get up close and personal with The Heroes while enjoying German-themed appetizers and a beverage of choice.
The cost is $50 per person! That’s quite a bargain. $100 for a pretty special night out for a couple is, well, hard to find these days. The only other costs are optional. Soft drinks and water are free, alcoholic beverages are not, but there will be a full bar available. Special parking on the “BMW Walk of Fame” leading up to the front door of the Museum is $25 per car for up to 25 cars. General parking is free.
There is no dress code but you probably want something dressier than jeans. Business casual is good although not easily defined. If you want to wear a sports coat, you won’t feel out of place, but also don’t feel obligated.
