2021 Holiday Party!

When LTDO throws a Holiday Party, it does not fool around! The festivities at Meson Sabika featured an elegant setting, great food, and lots of quality schmoozing. Thanks to our Events Chair Urzula Urzua for conceiving and planning this (and coping with late responses and no-shows)!

Heads up — next year, the Holiday Party will be a fundraiser via advance ticket sales only Start saving your pennies!

Chili Cookoff Fundraiser

The Chili Cookoff Fundraiser is returning!  We hope to hold the event sometime this Spring, but we don’t know yet when it will be safe to do so. Admission will be $30 per individual, $60 per family, and $5 off if you bring a dish.

We’ll hold four competitions:
1. Chili – any kind     2. Chili – vegetarian     3. Cornbread     4. Dessert

We are still seeking a site for this event, so if you have any ideas or connections, PLEASE let us know at urzula@gmail.com.

Oktoberfest 2021 was Amazing!

LTDO’s Third Annual (and second LIVE) Oktoberfest was a blowout! Everyone was required to be vaccinated and the weather cooperated permitting abundant ventilation of Alter Brewing’s spacious Barrel Room. Everyone was taking photos with everyone else, and if that ain’t a successful political event then I’m a Ferengi.

Your Lazy Editor did not have time to include more than a smattering of photos, but we’re planning a special Oktoberfest Edition. Want to see your photos in the mix? Please email them to photos@ltdo.org and include identifying information!
