Danube on the screen, and on the table

The Danube River may not really be very blue, but it has sufficient charm to attract millions of visitors to its region each year.

The second-longest river in Europe originates in Germany’s Black Forest and passes through eight other countries — Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine — before emptying into the Black Sea.

Why all this talk about the Danube? Because it will be the subject of Peter Brown’s illustrated after-dinner presentation at our Thursday, January 30, meeting at Quigley’s.

In keeping with the topic, the main dinner buffet dish will be beef tips and mushrooms in sauce with broad noodles, a dish very common throughout the Danube region.

One-question quiz: What is the longest river in Europe?
