Celebrate Uncle Sam’s 244th birthday in style at a virtual bash streamed on the Club's Facebook Live page on July 4 at 12pm.
With recorded speeches from Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado, Joseph M Young, chargé d’affaires at the US Embassy, Michael Alfant, the Club's representative governor, and Masaaki Takei, mayor of Minato Ward, and music from the US 7th Fleet Band, the afternoon promises to feature all the requisite pomp and ceremony.
Since no July Fourth would be complete without the appropriate food, order up a Club picnic lunch for a true taste of Americana.
Feast on plates of smoked brisket and pork ribs, all-natural Berkshire hot dogs or roasted salmon steaks, all washed down with hearty gulps of old-fashioned lemonade perfect for a summer afternoon (details below).
Whether you’re an American by birth or by heart, all are welcome at this virtual party.
