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.

Mensa Hike, Saturday May 9th

April 28, 2015 in Uncategorized


Suggested activity: A Mensa hike organized by Brendan Klosterman
1pm-2:30pm Shanahan Ridge trail

Starting at an access point off Lehigh Street in Boulder, the South Fork Shanahan Trail winds up into the foothills, the last 3/4 miles before it reaches the Mesa Trail offering quite a steep incline. Things then level off a bit for the 1/2 mile stretch of the Mesa Trail before gently sloping downhill on the North Fork Shanahan Trail. According to the Boulder OSMP trail maps, this particular loop runs roughly 4.2 miles.

With a loose topic of discussion: What does having high IQ scores mean in your life?

Mon, Mar 23rd, The Taj

March 23, 2015 in Uncategorized

Dinner this month is at the Taj.  NOT the Taj Mahal.  Please do not buy those emergency plane tickets you just nearly leapt for.

They’re at 2630 Baseline Rd. in Boulder.

Here’s their blurb.
Taj restaurant has delighted patrons with healthy and delicious traditional Indian Cuisine for years and the patrons have rewarded the restaurant well by making the restaurant a full, cozy and happy place to be in and by giving the ‘Best of Boulder’ honors every year since its opening in February 1996.

Yum.  Go.  Eat.  Have conversations with real people.  Experience the world.  Leave a tip.

The usual yadda yadda:
Socializing and drinks start at 5:30.  Seats at 6 and order at 6:30.  There’s that whole Exalted Skald thing.   Bring a book, leave a book.  Don’t bring your death ray – they tend to object to that sort of thing.

As is ever more the case these days, I’m a little late with getting this post up to let you know when and where the next dinner is.

TOMORROW!  TONIGHT! It’s tonight, Dec. 16th at 5:30 at the Golden Lotus in Boulder.

Here’s the website

Here’s the map

What more could you possibly want?

We start gathering at 5:30, sit down at 6 and order at 6:30.  We do love our routine.  Someday, though, we may just change it all up and do everything in reverse just to see who notices.
