The British Club at Saffron Indian Bistro


Twink Gates-Zimdar, British Club Publicity

On Sunday, January 11, twelve members of the British Club enjoyed a terrific 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 Ethel Willmot for organizing this fun event.
