On Saturday, September 22nd, a longtime ADSW member will host a reception in her 1920s home in Baltimore. Her home is located just minutes from Penn Station (about $7 by Uber) for those wishing to take public transit. There is ample free parking both on the street and at a strip mall near her home for those who plan to drive. 
 
The home's furnishings reflect the member's decades long love of Art Deco, with a Tiki Deck thrown in for fun.

This will be a late afternoon event featuring beer, white wine, and a buffet of heavy hors d'oeuvres. There will also be rum and a variety of fruit juices served at the tiki bar. We hope you can join us! 

 
Weather notice: Late September can still be hot. The house is not air conditioned so dress comfortably.

Getting There 
 
An event in Baltimore poses special problems for some ADSW members (and special benefits for others who happen to live in Baltimore). 
To help members plan their trip to Baltimore, we have included questions in the registration form to assist in forming carpool arrangements and identify travel companions for train travel. We also inquire about plans before the event.
We will do our best to provide assistance in locating rides and travel companions, but must emphasize the importance of registering early. Do not expect to register at the last minute and find a ride.
 
Cost: $25 ADSW members
 
Registration limited to 25.
