On Thursday, January 14 twenty-five members and two guests of the British Club enjoyed a brilliant meal at the Saffron Indian Bistro on Oracle Road here in Tucson. Choosing a la carte from a wide menu of delicious Indian Cuisine, the Brits enjoyed the camaraderie of members and friends. A fun time was had by all enjoying the different Indian food; some say the staple of British Cuisine!

Everyone thanked Peter Godfrey for organizing this fun event.
