День Знаний Luncheon!

Yesterday, 4 September 2009, marked the Russian Culture Society’s celebration of День Знаний, Knowledge Day. In Russia, this day is celebrated on September 1st of every year and is the traditional day when students return to school, having been promoted to the next grade.

The Russian Culture Society decided to meet at the restaurant “Taste of Europe” for lunch. We enjoyed Russian borscht, Russian chicken shashlik, Russian meat blintzes, and Siberian pelmeni.

The food was as excellent as the camaraderie!

Many thanks not only to Brenna Witt, our Minister of Culture who organized this wonderful event, but also to everyone who came out and “broke bread” with us!

Hope to see you soon!
