    Dine-Out at Da Pizza


    This month’s Dine-out will take us to a very popular pizzeria in Auderghem. Da Pizza is renowned for its cosy family atmosphere and its amazing pizzas made with fresh ingredients in a wood-fired oven. A long-time favorite of Sheila Rosseau’s family, it is also a favorite of the mayor of Auderghem.

    Responding to feedback from Club members on the pricing of previous Dine-outs, we have arranged a dinner at €35 per person, a significant lower cost, partly due to dropping the starter, albeit with a great pizza followed by dessert, half a bottle of wine and water per person and a Limoncello to round the meal off.  

    Dine-outs are a great opportunity to meet old friends and make some new ones. If you have not yet been to a Dine-Out, or are looking to discover new restaurants in Brussels, this is the event for you.

    A Guided Tour of
    The Lussato House


    Join us on Saturday, March 3rd for a unique guided visit to the Lussato House.

    Located in Brussels’ prestigious Prince d’Orange district in Uccle, the Institute can be found in a house on Avenue de la Sapinière with the symbolic name of “Clairval”.

    Built for the Brussels exchange merchant Grunewald by Belgian architect Antoine Pompe (a student of Victor Horta) between 1924 and 1926, the house is a typical example of pre-war Bauhaus architecture. Both the interior and exterior of the house are listed. Bricks, horizontal windows supported by concrete window headers, wooden cladding, pointed roofs nodding at Flemish or Anglo-Norman architecture and flat roofing all make this building a fascinating object of study and place to visit. These features are also a perfect illustration of its purpose of housing a collection of Japanese popular art embodying simplicity, authenticity and minimalism. 

    The gardens planted with majestic decorative trees date back to the construction of the house and even feature certain Japanese-style varieties. Spanning 80 ares, the park slopes strongly and will be partially turned into a Japanese garden designed by young landscape architects in an international competition.

    Please note that this event is limited to 20 participants.

    American Theatre Club presents


    Please hold the date Thursday March 8 for the production of Steel Magnolias

    We are happy to share information with you about the next production of the American Theater Company in Brussels. Some of us are certainly planning to go… not least because an ACB Board member is in the show! We won’t organize a group booking for ACB, but we plan to attend on the Thursday evening and encourage ACB members to do the same if you can. That way, you can combine seeing some friendly ACB faces with an evening of theatre. It is being performed all that week, if you cannot make the Thursday.

    "Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana is where “all the ladies who are anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy offers shampoos and free advice to her best clients and best friends. This alternately hilarious and poignantly moving play invites us into the gossipy world of women in a small-town beauty parlor in the American South. Above all, it explores the universal strength, compassion, and resilience underlying the antic banter of its very human characters."

    Tickets cost €15, and can be booked in February at http://www.atcbrussels.com

    The Sellout
    by Paul Beatty (USA, Man Booker Prize 2016)
     


    Paul Beatty was born in 1962 in Los Angeles. He is a contemporary African-American author and associate Professor of writing at Columbia University.
    In 2016, for the “THE SELLOUT”, he won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the UK’s prestigious Man Booker Price.

    THE SELLOUT is a biting satire about a young man’s isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court.
    This book showcases a comic genius at top of his game … but it also makes you think (in only 288 pages)!

    Venue: please contact genevieve@chiropractorbergiers.be
