It Would Be A Crime To Miss Our Sisters In Crime Holiday Party

The Upstate SC Chapter of Sisters in Crime will hold its annual Holiday Party-Dinner on Thursday, December 8, at The Runway Café, 21 Airport Rd, Greenville, S.C. Please note this party takes the place of our normal first Thursday of the month meeting date, e.g. there will be NO meeting December 1.

The party will be held in the café’s “Hangar.” Plan to arrive between 6 and 6:30 p.m. The dinner buffet line will open at 6:30. Since the Hangar is larger than our regular meeting space, we have plenty of room to welcome guests—fellow mystery lovers, friends and neighbors, and spouses curious about those monthly crime-night getaways.

Our traditional holiday party format offers plenty of time to socialize and discuss our “novel” interests. This provides an ideal opportunity to get better acquainted with fellow crime fiction enthusiasts. Attendees are invited to bring bags of books for a free book exchange. During an after-dinner “open mike” segment, members and guests are invited to read short (3-5 minute) passages from their favorite 2011 book finds or their own published novels or works in progress.

Reservations are required and a per person admission charge ($10 plus tax and a 15% service charge) will be collected at the door. Admission covers the dinner buffet including drink and dessert. Check back on this site for a Holiday Buffet Menu. We'll try to have it posted by December 1.

Reservations should be emailed to Ellis Vidler ( The reservation deadline is noon, December 6. After that date, any cancellations or no-shows will be charged since the chapter must pay for the number reserved. The admission fee applies even for individuals who elect not to take advantage of the buffet.
