Mt. Washington Progressive Dinner tickets now on sale!  Only a limited number of seats left so NOW is the time to reserve your space for our February 21, 2015 tour. 

Contact PTA Board Member Nancy De Leon Meeker at 323.404.0410 or waysandmeans2@mwpta.org if you would like to purchase a ticket.

Our 2015 theme is “Farm to Table to School” celebrating local farms, local homes, and supporting our local school.

One of the stops on this year’s tour is a visit to the Minster Residence. Take a step back to a more genteel time when you cap off your lively evening of Progressive Dinner fun with sweets, appertifs and coffee at the breathtaking Minster Residence.  This beautiful Sea View Lane Craftsman built in 1911 with expansive views of Occidental College and the Verdugo Hills has a storied past.  It was one of the first homes built on the hill and the first owners used it as a sanitarium but in 1920, Joseph Minster who called himself “the Mayor of Mt. Washington” purchased the place and lived in it for 50 years hence the moniker, “Minster Residence.”  Adopted as an architecturally significant monument by the City of Los Angeles in 1994, this house stands out at a gem in our Mt. Washington neighborhood and a perfect locale to end a wonderful evening of frivolity with friends.

Lines and angles aren’t just part of 3rd grade Common Core math, they’re also an important part of the second house on our Progressive Dinner Tour.  Built in 1998 as part of The Museum of Contemporary Art’s Focus Exhibition Series, the house was conceived of, designed and built by Jorge Pardo.  A longtime artist whose body of work includes sculptures of everyday home furnishings, Jorge Pardo received international acclaim for his ability to blur the lines between the disciplines of sculpture, art, architecture and design.  The house does just that.  Come have a second course nosh and listen to Silverlake Wine’s own George Cossette tell us about the delicious wines he has selected for the evening for your drinking pleasure.

Van tour seating is available for 5-9 p.m. and 6-10 p.m.  Buy your tickets for your preferred tour time by contacting PTA Board Member Nancy De Leon Meeker at 323.404.0410 or waysandmeans2@mwpta.org.
