2003 Capital City Countdown

IT'S OFFICIAL: Our New Year's Eve party will be held this year at the historic Renaissance Mayflower Hotel! Dubbed "the second best address in Washington" by former White House occupant Harry Truman, the Mayflower is a venue of incomparable cachet.

This year we have expanded our circle to include the University Club's Proctor Dougherty Society (named after the architect of the Club's founding in 1904) along with representatives of other SCP partner groups.

This is a black tie preferred event. Open bar (premium well brands). Passed hors d'oeuvres. Doors will open at 9:00pm and the party will ramp up to full speed right away.

A champagne toast will complement our open bar, and we will have our traditional countdown with Auld Lang Syne at midnight.

We've done it all before and we're good at it. When everyone cancelled in 1999 we continued along and had a great party. No lines at the bar or at Will Call. No coat check fights. No queue at the bathrooms. And this is a world-class venue, so you won't find yourself eating potato chips or drinking rot gut—and you won't suffer through any clueless bartenders.

We have no profit motive to feed, so we are able to keep ticket prices much lower than their market value. Our goal is just to get the best of Washington together for a good time; revenue in excess of costs goes to charity.
