Noodle Bar offering lunch and dinner.
Purcell’s Lounge opens daily at 3:00pm for drink and where hot or cold sandwiches & appetizers are available. You can also enjoy a cocktail outside on Purcy’s Porch, their outdoor deck just off Purcell’s Lounge. (This is where we will hold the Limburger Cheese portion of our Wednesday Social)
Additionally, Oneida Casino offers a food court which is attached to the Radisson Hotel, featuring Boar’s Head Deli, Chicken Fry & Grillmasters. You may also enjoy Packers heritage at Lombardi’s Sports Bar & Grill located inside the Oneida Casino.
Our reunion will also have some great tours planned. The tours include: Wednesday (tour of the Oneida Indian Reservation; Thursday (a day touring Door County with various stops throughout the day; including the Maritime Museum and culminating in a traditional Fish Boil dinner before returning to the hotel), and Friday (choice of either a tour of Lambeau Field and the Packer’s Hall of Fame OR a city tour to include the Railroad Museum). Additionally, we are setting aside Wednesday evening so we can have individual ship gatherings.
We should have a fantastic hospitality space on the 1st floor of the hotel where I plan to hold our Welcome Social and which will allow us to bring in our own snacks, drinks, and alcoholic beverages. It even has a fireplace and a small kitchenette. We also have a space (OUTDOORS) to hold our now famous Limburger Cheese Social, which we will plan on having Wednesday afternoon following the tour.
I am still working on our Saturday night banquet dinner which will include desert/coffee/tea and will be preceded by photographs by Classic Imaging. There will also be a cash bar during the banquet. We will also have some special entertainment; which I will save as a surprise. Additionally, we will have our annual raffle and 50/50 drawing. If you have any ideas for making our 2019 Reunion in Green Bay even better please give me a call at (803) 847-9154 or you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SEE YOU IN GREEN BAY!!!
