“I will ride my luck on occasion, but I like to pick the occasion.” —Rex Stout, Might as Well Be Dead

The Wolfe Pack invites you for an evening of libations, literary lore, and a feast to satisfy even the grandest gourmand! Set in the storied Sterling Hotel, a Victorian ballroom conveniently located near the Sheraton Grand, we toast all things Nero Wolfe. There will be a courtesy bus to convey you the three blocks if you prefer not to walk.

Don’t miss the chance to imbibe and ingest the thrilling legacy of Rex Stout. We promise parodies and pastiches, orchids, and oh, the setting! This is an event worth investigating—all characters are welcome.

We will be enjoying a sumptuous meal that includes hors d’oeuvres, salad, entree, dessert, and selected fine wines from California vineyards.

Choose an entrée from the drop-down menu below:

— Panko Parmesan crusted chicken with sherry cream
— Roasted petite filet mignon with savory Demi-glacé
— Oven-roasted salmon with tarragon butter sauce
— Portabello polenta stacked marinara (vegan/gluten-free)

There will be a no-host cocktail bar available.
