Just bring your appetite for food and fun. Testimony from former participants: What do the West Texas Waltz, Bad Romance, and a Beatles Medley have in common?  Your favorite clinical professors performed them all at last year’s singin’ supper. There was terrific home-cooked food, good conversation, copious amounts of whiskey, and, of course, singing.  No one wanted the night to end!
