An Ethiopian Christmas Celebration

The EACSA is again sponsoring an Ethiopian Christmas meal. The details are below. Please feel free to share with anyone who might be interested!

Early Ethiopian Christmas greetings and Happy New Year!

We wanted to invite anyone who will be in the Chicago area to meet for an Ethiopian meal at the Ras Dashen restaurant on Sunday afternoon, January 6th, at 2:00 pm. We will have the "party room" in the back again. The costs below include a variety of Ethiopian dishes, a can of soda, tax, and tip. Everyone will simply pay the restaurant that day. Here is the age and estimated pricing per person.

Ages 13+/Adult: Approx $17-18

Age 8-12: Approx $9-10

Age 4-7: Approx $7

Age 0-3: Free

Please let Tim Lenning know ASAP via email( tlenning at csgdelivers dot com) if you can join us. Also, please provide the number of adults and kids for each of the age ranges above.

The restaurant is located at (and there is parking available on the street):

Ras Dashen

5846 N. Broadway
Chicago, IL 60660

(773) 506-9601

Similar to last year, we thought it would be fun to celebrate Ethiopian culture by having story time - older kids could share a favorite memory or experience from Ethiopian Christmas, adults could read a story related to Ethiopian culture (for example, Jane Kurtz has some great children's books) or share an experience from when they traveled to Ethiopia, etc. Please give this some thought and encourage your kids to consider sharing a story.

Again, please let me know how many by age range so we can let the restaurant know how much food to plan for.

Amesege’nallo (Thanks)!
