Dinner at Oskar Blues, Longmont – Feb. 22nd

February 22, 2016 in Uncategorized


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.
