It was a very Happy 4th of July soiree that the American Club of Madrid hosted at the Hard Rock Cafe Terrace. And was GUIDEPOST glad to have joined it!  The night was filled with star-spangled American-themed decor plus a golden American oldies soundtrack, all of which provided a patriotic ambiance to the party.

What followed was the inevitable, and most delectable,  all-American selection of food inevitably  including hamburgers, hotdogs,  fries and even cheesecake for dessert!

At the beginning of the party, each guest was given American-flag sun glasses. Great to wear during the party and great show off to friends who couldn’t join the celebrations!ROSA ROJAS 4 july unnamed man with gifts 1DSC_0090

The closing remarks were made by Jennifer Peters, former Club president, who said how wonderful it was to be celebrating the 4th of July with both American and Spanish friends.

“Happy Birthday America” and “We love you!”  resonated throughout the great event that the American Club of Madrid carried off with its characteristic zest and zeal.

Don’t forget to make an early reservation for the unmissable American Club Gala at The Ritz, before every available place is snapped up! Gala date: 8 November 2014.
