Complimentary Hot Lunches

The Sheraton’s Chef David will provide us with hot lunches every day. His menu usually includes a very popular Taco Bar, Soup & Salad Bar, and a Pasta Bar. Lunch is always ready shortly after the morning session. This is a perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends or make new ones.


Happy Hour Hospitality

Immediately following our afternoon session, we will have happy hour in our hospitality rooms. This includes an open bar and non-alcoholic drinks along with snacks and hot appetizers. There is plenty of seating at which to meet up with your friends to discuss the day’s bridge. Don’t miss out on happy hour as it is a lot of fun, especially if you are celebrating a winning day.



Our host hotel, the Sheraton Overland Park, is surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Kansas City. Many of our players from out of town look forward to capping a fun day of bridge with a special dinner at one of these fine restaurants.  Check out our Restaurant Guide which features locally owned favorites and regional chains. It is important to make your restaurant reservation before you come.

Our games on Tuesday, December 26 are at 1:00 and 6:00. There will be a complimentary happy hour with an open bar and snacks starting at 3:45. The Sheraton will provide a buffet dinner to purchase at 4:45 for those who would prefer to eat at the hotel. On November 1st we will post on our website the menu, cost, and a link which will allow you make a reservation. You will pay at the door.


Evening Bridge

For those diehards still looking for a game after dinner, there is a pairs game that starts at 7:00.

Pre-Registration Highly Recommended

Many of our players have signed up for Fast Results. This allows them to receive an email every morning that gives them results from the previous day. They also receive announcements for the day including the lunch and hospitality menus and the day’s guest speaker.
