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.
