Dear Lovely Newcomers!

Happy November everyone. Despite the Thanksgiving Holiday this month, we managed to squeeze in a few special outings along with our regular events. Check out our museum tour on Nov 3 and our Barre class on Nov 30.

Fun Fact: Did you know that once a newcomer always a newcomer? In other words, once you join the club, you can stay as long as you like. Some of us have been here for over five years!

Please enjoy our November events. And as always, we welcome you to email us with questions and suggestions.

Book ClubThis is Where I Leave You (by Jonathan Tropper)

THURS Nov 9 @ 7:30 pm
Host: Peg Smith
RSVP: email for location details.

Tropper writes compulsively readable, laugh-out-loud funny novels, and his fifth book, This Is Where I Leave You, is his best yet. Judd Foxman is oscillating between a sea of self-pity and a “snake pit of fury and resentment” in the aftermath of the explosion of his marriage, which ended “the way these things do: with paramedics and cheesecake.” Simultaneously hilarious and hopeful, This Is Where I Leave You is as much about a family’s reckoning as it is about one man’s attempt to get it together.

With a 4-start Yelp review, Sichuan Garden offers an array of authentic Sichuan dishes and libations from it’s well known bar.

Coffee Talk

No RSVP: Just drop in!

Bunco (& Left-Right-Center)

THURS Nov 16 @ 7:30pm
Bring: $5 ante for Bunco; $3 for L-R-C (exact change appreciated!); and a beverage or snack to share.
RSVP: email Kessa Glisic,, for location details.

About the Games: Bunco is an entertaining, simple dice game, with no experience required. It’s played in multiple rounds with players alternating turns rolling the dice to match the target number. Whoever wins the most rounds is the overall winner. And because players rotate tables, it is a great way to meet and chat with different people. Left-Right-Center is an even simpler game, faster moving than Bunco, and is played at the end of the evening. Did we mention there’s no experience required?

Men’s Pub Night

WED Nov 29, 7:00pm-whenever @ Via Lago, Lexington Center

Terrific turnout last time at Via Lago! So join us again this month, 99 years after prohibition began with the first US legislation banning sale of beverages with an alcohol content higher than 1.28%. Not even a session beer!
