SOLD OUT - WAIT LIST ONLY - Sunday Supper With Susanne
Let's honor that time when we trusted the news by dining old school French!
Taix kindly requests food orders three days in advance; registration closes Thursday, September 20, 9 a.m. Pacific time. No refunds can be requested after this date.
For this Sunday Supper, we welcome KPCC News Anchor Susanne Whatley as our guest speaker. Susanne will discuss the news business and how the news has evolved over her illustrious career.
Susanne began her career as a general-assignment field reporter covering courts, crime, quakes, fires, floods, and politics for KRTH and as an LA correspondent for national radio networks including The Associated Press. She served more than a decade as the Hollywood correspondent for the AP's Portfolio news magazine, interviewing hundreds of film and TV stars, directors, and writers. She also hosted weekly live reports for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and stations in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Her honors include Golden Mikes and APTRA awards for Best Newscast and Best News Writing. Additional awards from those and other professional organizations include first place in spot news, documentary, entertainment and feature reporting, and use of feature sound.
Taix Restaurant first opened its doors in 1927, moved to Echo Park in 1962, and has remained a family business for more than 90 years. Taix is proud of its vintage history, and once you've enjoyed their delicious French country cuisine, you'll understand why Taix is a Los Angeles institution and destination.
Even tastier, the cost per person is $35 per person due to a generous grant from the Alumni Association. Guests can choose between three entrees and two desserts, and must specify their choice upon registration. All dinners include crudites, soup, salad, and bread, and three glasses of house red or white wine per person.
ENTREES: TAIX Roast Chicken, Trout Almondine, Beef Bourguignon

Please join host Lucy Wang, MBA'86, Susanne, and our fellow alums in what promises to be a wonderful evening at one of LA's historic landmarks.
