Game Night ~ Rosie's is closing ~ We are moving to The Waverly

**URGENT MESSAGE**

I received a call from Andrea, the owner's daughter of Rosie's Café.  Unfortunately, due to some devastating circumstances they have to close their doors immediately.  As of this evening, Rosie's is CLOSED.

Thankfully..............we have The Waverly.  Robin, Augie and the team at The Waverly came through for me (and thankfully, the large banquet hall is open).

Everything stays the same, though we won't have the pool table or dart boards.  IF for any reason this puts a wrench in your plans or The Waverly in Cheshire isn't convenient, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP to NO so I can give them the proper headcount.

No pre pay on this event.  If your plans change just be sure to change your RSVP so we'll have an accurate headcount.  No buy in, no cash needed for games.  Just a night of FUN & GAMES.   

Dinner ~ On your own!  Come early and  you can order from the menu or open a tab and grab a buffet plate when you arrive ($10) CASH ONLY, for buffet ticket.  Beverages are separate. Wonderful desserts are included in the buffet price. 

BUFFET MENU  ~  $10    Menu TBD

Texas Hold 'Em ~  NO CASH BUY IN.   Experienced and beginners welcome to the table.  We will play the games by ear.  

The new digital dart board has arrived.

Setback, Cribbage (bring your boards), Hearts, Darts, Pool or Board games.   Pick your game.   This is all out GAME NIGHT.   We'll provide the cards & poker chips.  

Introduction by Curtis W of a new card game called GUT.  Curtis introduced this to a table last month and everyone loved it.

Nothing is set in stone, just go where the wind blows you.

No cash will be exchanged for any games.

Rosies is providing a friendly, large, comfortable room with game tables for 4 to 6 players each.   In addition, they have dart boards (a new digital dart board) and a pool table.

You can not bring in your own food or drinks.   Bring a friend with you.  I've opened this to a PLUS + 1.

    I'm so sorry. I found out a few minutes ago that I am on call all weekend starting at 5 pm on Friday. Bummer. I very much wanted to meet you all.

    August 21, 2014

    • Ellen F.

      Barbara and Samantha. I know you are new to our group. Please make sure that when you decide not to go that you change you RSVP to NO. This helps me keep an accurate headcount.

      August 22, 2014

    • Ellen F.

      I've done it for you this time but just a heads up for future events. This also allows anyone on a waitlist to move into your spot. Thanks for your understanding.

    Geez, Denis sings karaoke at Rosie's a couple times and they shut the ENTIRE place down.......smart owners...

    August 22, 2014

    • Dennis T

      They said IF I sang there again that they'd shut down so it wasn't me......

      August 22, 2014

They also will honor the $10 buffet atleast for tmrw night, they're putting a menu together for me right now.

    Oh my Gosh! We are blessed to have the BEST organizer on the face of the planet! Not even an establishment closing with less than 24 hours to go to the event can stop Ellen. And just like that, BAM, Ellen has got it all taken care of and up and running at a new venue! Unbelievable, way to go ELLEN!

    You're right Pete about Ellen. I should of asked her to run for Governor last week. She could fix the State and still keep all of our social events happening in her spare time.

    Pete hit the nail on the head. I have never seen such uncluttered efficiency in so short a period. (It's been rumored that God is a woman. I believe that she's among us).

    Would love to, but I am already going to the Balloon Fest on Friday! I figure I get out of work at 4:30, so I should be able to get a good parking spot before it fills up. Have fun everyone, & I look forward to meeting for this some other Friday. :)

    My first Meetup ever! Oh no, you aren't going to make me wear one if those " hello my name is______" stickers are you? LOL. Can't wait to meet you all, sounds like a fun bunch!

    August 19, 2014

    • Ellen F.

      Actually we do use nametags, but not the "hello.............­....." tags. It does help to remember everyone. The more you go, the more you know...........our members. Can't wait to meet you.

      If you can play 7-card stud, you already know how to play Texas Hold'em. The betting procedures are just a little different.
