Don’t miss out: A great, fun evening celebrating all things Porsche in the heart of a downtown Minneapolis

This year’s Nord Stern Holiday Party & Annual Meeting will be held in the Mill City Museum’s main lobby! We are excited to be in beautiful, downtown Minneapolis, right in the heart of the early days and the genesis of Minnesota’s flour industries. Situated near both the US Bank Stadium and the world re-known Guthrie Theater, we will enjoy excellent food from D’Amico Catering, music by Steven C, a few comments from our officers and the passing of the gavel! Come celebrate another year of Nord Stern and the world of Porsches.

There will be a cash bar and appetizers to start. Dinner options include a choice of one of three entrees: a vegetarian napoleon, chicken breast, or beef short ribs.

Menu:
Plated Salad:  Baby Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Mandarin Oranges, Spiced Pecans and Raspberry Vinaigrette

Choice of one: 

  • Pan-Seared Breast of Chicken with Gremolata Sauce, Roasted Baby Red Potatoes and Roasted Asparagus
  • Short Rib of Beef with Sweet Balsamic Glaze, Parmesan Risotto and Brussel Sprouts
  • Vegetarian Napoleon layered with Portobello Mushrooms, Eggplant, Beefsteak Tomato, Sicilian Onion, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil Pesto served with Saffron Couscous

Dessert, Coffee, Tea
