The Fourth Garrideb will be celebrating its fifth anniversary this year during our Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes dinner during the World's
Fair of Money by the American Numismatic Association in Rosemont, Illinois. Our dinner will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2019, and we are hoping
you can join us.
Our dinner will be held at Basilico Ristorante in nearby Norridge, approximately 3 mile and 10 minutes away by car from the Donald E. Stephens Convention
Center, site of the World's Fair of Money.
For the first time ever, we will be in a private room for our dinner. Perhaps they have heard stories about past dinners with Sherlockians and/or coin
There is no agenda for the evening – no program, no quiz, no story discussions, well you get the idea. We do encourage attendees to offer up a toast or two,
to a Sherlockian or numismatic topic of their choosing.

We have invited members of the many Chicagoland area Sherlock Holmes groups to join us for an evening of good food, good drink and good conversation and
friendship. An attendee at one of our past dinners commented that “It has been a long time, if ever, that I have enjoyed the company of ‘strangers' at dinner
who were so bright, so engaging, and so talented.”
