On May 23, the Indian Village Woman’s Garden Club is having its Annual May Outing at the Bayview Yacht Club. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 6:00pm.  A wine, beer and a variety of cocktails will be available at a cash bar*. You may wish to order one of their famous  “Hummers,”** a very adult milkshake invented at the BYC. Drinks may be enjoyed on the waterfront terrace or inside. At 6:30, a BYC member will give a brief tour of the club. You may discover you really do want to be a freshwater sailer.


At 7:00pm, dinner will be served in the Mackinac Room which features  a beautiful view of the Detroit River and Belle Isle. The menu choices are Chicken Marsala, Salmon with a bacon lardons leeks sauce, or Mediterranean Quinoa, a healthy vegan and gluten free choice. All dinners come with a green salad, rolls/butter, potatoes, and a green vegetable. A soft drink, coffee or tea is included. Included dessert options are key lime pie, brownie, or strawberry shortcake.

Tickets for the dinner are $40 for members and $45 for non-members.

Tickets may be purchased below on Eventbrite.

When purchasing your ticket on Eventbrite, you will see “Other Information”, that is where you mark your choice of entree: salmon, chicken or quinoa. The deadline for purchase is May 22, 2019.
