Dushanbe Tea House, Sept. 15th

August 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

Look at me, getting a whole month’s jump on the next dinner announcement.

The next one will be on Monday, Sept. 15th at the Dushanbe Tea House in Boulder.

As per the usual yadda yadda, drinks and socializing begin at 5:30, seating at 6 and ordering at 6:30.  Someone will pass on the exalted skald, someone will tell stories about their misspent youth and someone will pass out from all the excitement.  NOTE: these predictions are not endorsed by American Mensa and in no way reflect the actual reality of future events.  Which, after all, haven’t happened yet.  Come on, people.  It’s not like I have a future-scope assembled in my living room that I built from parts that came in a mysterious package in the mail with otherworldly writing on it.  Nooooooo.  Why would you think that?

If you haven’t been to the Dushanbe Tea House, you should go.  It’s a little Boulder treasure.  As I hear tell, the whole thing was picked up and carried by hand across the ocean and half the continent from Dushanbe, India, and put down right on that spot in Boulder, which is where the workers got tired of carrying it.  Whereupon they wiped their brows and the diners peeked out the doorway at their new surroundings and said (in their native tongue) “What the **** just happened?”

I’m not sure they’re finished moving it, so be prepared for an unexpected journey, just in case.

Southern Sun, Aug. 18th

August 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hear ye, hear ye.  The next Mensa dinner will be at the Southern Sun, Monday, August 18th.

That’s at 627 S Broadway St. Boulder, CO 80305.  Here’s a map.

Socializing and drinks start at 5:30.  We’ll sit our buns down at 6:00 and order food at 6:30.

Now here’s a special note, and this is interesting:  Not only does Southern Sun only accept cash (don’t worry, they have a cash machine on site), but historically, they have always given us a single check for the entire table.

Now think about this – you get a bunch of supposed geniuses together to eat at a restaurant, and at some point, it comes time to split the check.  Oh man, it’s a spectacle.

Some people had drinks, some didn’t, some left early and left cash on the table, somebody mooched somebody else’s entree and most don’t remember what all they had by the time the evening is done and it’s time to figure out the tip.  I’m serious.  It’s Bistromath.

And the way our gatherings are growing, it’s bound to just get more entertaining every year.  So come down for some fun; we’ll do the exalted Skald thing yadda yadda, trade books and talk till we can’t stand ourselves any more.

Oh, and here’s Southern Sun’s blurb:

Southern Sun’s mission is to offer five-star service, fresh, high quality pub fare and finely crafted brews for affordable prices in an environment that’s comfortable like your living room. There will never be televisions at our pubs because we want our guests to meet and discuss the world in which we live or simply to play Scrabble.
 

No TV.  DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?  IT MEANS WE WON’T HAVE TO WEAR TIN-FOIL HATS TO KEEP THE WORLD GOVERNMENT FROM CONTROLLING OUR THOUGHTS THROUGH THEIR UBIQUITOUS BROADCAST MACHINES.  Well, at least YOU won’t.
