TFG To Hold Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes Dinner in Pittsburgh on March 29

TFG To Hold Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes Dinner in Pittsburgh on March 29

“… had partaken of an excellent dinner.”

– The Valley of Fear (VALL)

The American Numismatic Association is bringing its National Money Show to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in late March. The Fourth Garrideb will also be in Pittsburgh and will hold its Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes Dinner on Friday, March 29, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

The Sharp Edge’s Bistro on Penn, 922 Penn Street, is the venue for our dinner, and is a very short walk from the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, site of the National Money Show. Bistro on Penn combines the comfort of a neighborhood bar with the polished feel of a Belgian bistro, offering an unparalleled beer selection and a unique dining experience. There are 35 taps and 200+ bottles of beer to choose from. You can check out the food menu by clicking HERE.

There is no program, quizzes or story discussions for this dinner. Maybe a toast or two, if someone feels adventurous. Mostly the evening is about good food, good camaraderie and good conversations. An attendee at one of our dinners in 2017 commented that “It has been a long time, if ever, that I have enjoyed the company of  ‘strangers’ at dinner who were so bright, so engaging, and so talented.”

The Fourth Garrideb has a tradition of issuing a souvenir at these dinners and this year will be no exception. All attendees will receive this item.

We hope you can join us for this evening. We ask that interested folks RSVP to Greg@FourthGarrideb.com by Monday, March 25 so that we can make the necessary arrangements with the restaurant. Again, there is no need to pay in advance.
