Mark your calendar: Midnight Symposium at the Sorrento

If it seems like First Hill’s Sorrento Hotel has been around forever, that’s because it has. Well, relatively speaking, in Seattle time.

This year the Sorrento is celebrating 100 years. Part of the festivities is a Midnight Symposium series which has its second installment on November 11 with author Lesley Hazleton. Hazleton, who has written four books about the Middle East and Jerusalem, will be presenting “The Ugly American, or the Roots of Arrogance in Ignorance”.

For a mere $50 each, 40 guests will gather in the Sorrento’s 7th floor penthouse at 8pm for an evening of dialogue and discussion led by Hazleton, a hearty stew, wine and a large bottle of whisky to be shared by all. Guests who think they may require additional fortification are encourage to bring a bottle or two to share with the class.

If you’re interested, e-mail for reservations or more details.
