Thursday Night SSA Dinner

Italian Buffet (see below for details). This is open to anyone, not just SSA members. It is a casual dinner where you can meet new people and socialize. Sometimes people bring slides and stereocards to share. The SSA (Stereoscopic Society of America) exists to share images amongst members through folios. Folios are a round robin collection of images, one per member, which circulates through the mail. When a member receives the box, he or she views all the images and writes a short comment for each one, and reads comments made by others. They remove their previous image with all the comments on it, and replace it with a new image. Then they mail the box to the next person in line. The dinners are a way to meet in person the people the members have gotten to know through the mail.

Chicken Picatta, Capers, Olives, Lemon-Chicken Jus / Saffron Risotto Milanese
House Made Beef Meat Balls, Crimini Mushrooms, Chianti-Tomato Ragout
