Anaheim White House Welcomes Holidays With 25th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony

OC Restaurant Kicks Off Season Of Giving With Holiday Ceremony/ Toy Drive

Recently celebrating it’s 25th anniversary, the Anaheim White House is continuing it’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Dinner on Sunday, November 18 at 6 p.m. Upon arriving, guests will be greeted by a blanket of real snow, tray passed hors d’oeuvres and champagne before the ceremony at 7 p.m. The tree lighting also will serve as a special dedication to a select few who have shown the restaurant exceptional support over the past 25 years. Immediately following the tree lighting will be a 4-course prix fixe dinner especially created for the evening.

            Menu items include duck confit and roasted quail served with a bouquet of fresh vegetables in a white balsamic dressing; sautéed butterfish served in a seasonal squash with a spicy California vodka sauce; veal chop served with spinach, fontina and mozzarella cheeses and topped with a morel mushroom and shallot cream sauce; and a special dessert prepared by the Anaheim White House’s award-winning pastry chef.

This year’s event also will include a Caterina's Club toy drive benefiting “motel children,” thus named because their poor, working class parents are relegated to living in low-cost motel rooms. Guests are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy for donation.

The cost is $125 plus tax and gratuity per person. Reservations must be made no later than Friday, November 9. For reservations or more information call (714) 772-1381.

 “This year’s tree lighting is very special because it coincides with our silver anniversary,” said Serato. “That’s why we are dedicating it to those who have shown us great support over the last 25 years and also to the motel kids and my father, who have always inspired me to keep giving.”

Situated in a historic national landmark mansion dating to 1909, the Anaheim White House restaurant offers a quixotic menu of northern Italian/French fare, extensive wine list, unparalleled service and an elegant setting to create a dining experience that is timeless, remarkable and without equal. The restaurant is located at 887 South Anaheim Blvd. in Anaheim.  For more information, visit www.anaheimwhitehouse.com.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
