Book ClubBorn to Run (by Bruce Springsteen)

THURS Sept 14 @ 7:30 pm
Host: Sue Stapleton, 138 Burlington St, Lexington. (Park nearest cross street, Hawthorne Rd., or in Sue’s driveway. Do not park on Burlington St.)
RSVP: email

The author describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as “The Big Bang”: seeing Elvis Presley’s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. The author vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized.


Bunco (& Left-Right-Center)

MON Sept 18 @ 7:30pm
Bring: $5 ante for Bunco; $3 for L-R-C (exact change appreciated!); and a beverage or snack to share.
RSVP: email Katie Borgstrom at 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?

Spa Night!

WED Sept 27 @ 7:00pm @ Beersheba Nail & Spa, 10 Muzzey St., Lexington

The summer holidays are over and the evening air is getting crispy. Despair not. Pamper yourself with a manicure, pedicure, chair massage or a combination of services. This one’s popular and spots go quickly, so book your spot today!
