Canadian Friends of Finland Christmas Party

CFF- Canadian Friends of Finland has extended an invitation to OSKU friends to their Christmas party. See below for details:

2019 Joulujuhla

This year we are hanging out at one of our favorite restaurants for our holiday festivities.  We have arranged a 3-course prix fixe meal at the special price of $42 (excluding tax and tips)!  We booked Das Lokal last year for Christmas and many said it was the best Joulujuhla ever!  Thought we would try this again.

If we get enough people to come, we can have the restaurant to ourselves!  You do not have to pay in advance (the restaurant will issue your bill), but you must register with us by November 30th if you plan on joining us.  The restaurant needs to know how many places to reserve and if the restaurant is closed to other reservations.  Also, there is limited seating.  Register early so that you are not disappointed!

The menu will include:

  • soup or salad
  • main course
  • dessert plus coffee

We are still discussing the details of the menu, and will let you know in an update when it is finalized.  A vegetarian option is available if registrants request  it (please let us know when registering).  Drinks other than coffee are at additional cost.  There is free parking in the restaurant’s lot and also parking on the street.  Please register for the event by clicking the link below.

Hope to see you there!  Invite your friends to join us!  It promises to be a really fun evening.

Date:    Tuesday, December 10th

Time:    7 PM to 10 PM

Place:   Das Lokal

190 Dalhousie St

 You must register with CFF to attend this event.  Seating is limited!  Please let us know if you are planning on attending our celebration:
