Dinner at Oskar Blues, Longmont – Feb. 22nd

February 22, 2016 in Uncategorized

YOU ARE INVITED!

Boulder/Front Range Mensa’s monthly dinner meeting is on Monday.  All current and former members, plus their families and friends, are warmly welcome!

WHEN?  Monday, February 22nd

WHERE? Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids & Solids, 1555 S Hover Rd, Longmont 80501.  Phone is (303) 485-9400.  There are other Oskar Blues locations scattered around the Front Range.  Be sure to go to the one in Longmont!

WHAT TIME?  Socializing and drinks start at 5:30.  We’ll order food at 6:00, so come at least a little bit before 6:00 so you have time to get settled and consider the menu.

FOOD?  Great brews, Cajun, Creole, Southern-style comfort foods, pizza, and…other liquid and solid stuff.  I must confess the name of this restaurant, more specifically the “Homemade Liquids and Solids” part, vaguely disturbs me.  Imagine the following conversation between spouses/significant others/friends:

Person #1:  Hey, what do you think we should do for dinner tonight?

Person #2:  Homemade liquids and solids.

Person #1:  Yay!  That’s a lot better than the homemade gases and plasma we had for dinner last night….

Hmmm.  Not very appetizing.  Are we going to chemistry class (which is also fun, but in a different way), or are we having dinner?  On second thought, dinner and chemistry are closely related.  In any case, “Libations and Comestibles” would have been much more descriptive.  And appetizing.  I’ll just have to roll with “Liquids and Solids”, hold my nose, and use my imagination.

NEWS?  Bruce will be awarding the Exalted Skald this month.  He has won the Skald the greatest number of times.  Let us all hope we aren’t filtered out by the second question.

BOOK EXCHANGE?  Bring books/take books – free

RSVP?  Very much appreciated, but last-minute deciders welcome.

See you Monday!

 

Future dinner dates:

Tuesday, March 22 – Conor O’Neill’s.  Socializing and drinks at 6, order at 6:30.

Monday, April 18.  Socializing and drinks at 6, order at 6:30.

Oskar Blues, Longmont, Monday Sep. 21

September 21, 2015 in Uncategorized

It’s dinner time again! This post will be quick and simple.

It’s at Oskar Blues. That’s at 1555 S Hover Rd, Longmont, CO 80501.  Not the one in Lyons.

Phone: (303) 485-9400.

As usual, people show up at about 5:30, get seated at 6 and order at 6:30.  Roughly.

See you there.  Told you this would be short.

Rio Grande, Tuesday, Aug. 18th

August 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

We’re doing that dinner thing again on Tuesday.  That thing where we eat food and (gasp) SOCIALIZE.  This is a thing that humans do.  If we want to fit into the larger culture, we need to embrace the customs of the populace and not let them know about our plans for world domination.  Save the maniacal rants and death rays until the day when we emerge from our underground lairs with our armies of giant armored squid and talking wildebeests.  Soon, people, soon.  Patience.

This month’s attempt to subtly assimilate ourselves into surface-dweller society will take place at The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant (The Rio). 1101 Walnut St, Boulder, CO 80302.  Phone: (303) 444-3690.

Socializing and drinks start at 5:30.  We’ll sit down at 6:00 and order food at 6:30.  At some point Kim will pass on the Exalted Skald.  And there will be much rejoicing (Yay).

Here is what the miserable above-grounders who run this establishment have to say for themselves: We hope you’ll agree that we serve up the best dang margaritas and from-scratch Mexican food this side of the Rio Grande, all in an atmosphere that makes you forget why you needed an escape in the first place.  Ha!  So they will attempt to wipe our memories in order to keep us imprisoned, with the lure of delectable food.  They will not find us so easy to subjugate.  Let us show these surfacelings how “margaritas” (whatever those are) are consumed.
