The San Antonio German Cub Presents Season’s Debutantes

By Shannon Miller Turner     Photography by Greg Harrison

THE SCENE: The 138-year-old San Antonio German Club recently hosted its annual Opening German gala in honor of the season’s debutantes. Held on a crisp, cool evening at the Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center, the ball offered a glorious night of dining and dancing in celebration of the club’s group of young ladies being presented to society.

THE VIBE: Resplendent in gorgeous white gowns, the debs dazzled as they were presented by their fathers then led to their bows by their escorts. Following the presentation, the celebration continued as guests and debs alike danced late into the night to the various musical stylings of The New Royals. The elegant red and white floral designs, in vibrant Chinoiserie ginger jars and radiant dècor for the evening were created by The Events Company in Houston.

The attendees were treated to cuisine and cocktails by Rosemary’s Catering. Beginning with passed hors d’oeuvres including their signature south Texas chicken bites; shrimp and grits, steak frites; and pork belly tostones on ciabatta crostini, topped with fresh burrata, preserved peaches and micro tarragon. Guests could then choose from offerings from more than ten unique food stations, with offerings including selections like jumbo cocktail shrimp served beneath an ice carving of the German’s familiar crest, sliced to order carving stations offering rack of lamb, tenderloin, and braised short rib options, mac and cheese pasta made with aged English cheddar, parmesan and French Brie, crisp cornmeal fried oysters and spicy popcorn shrimp; fried quail with chicken drummettes and cream gravy and biscuits, as well as walking salads and handmade gorditas. For dessert, guests chose from a tantalizing assortment of petite sweets – éclairs, truffles, mousse parfaits, macaroons, chocolate molten cakes with fresh ice cream and Rosemary’s famous bread pudding layered with whiskey cream and chunks of dark chocolate.

THE CAUSE:  Steeped in tradition, the organization was formed in 1880. Each year since its inception, the San Antonio German Club has presented its debutantes during San Antonio’s social season. The President of the German Club is Christopher Hodge and the First Vice President is Christopher Petty.
