Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

  • September 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • To be determined

September's book selection is, "Childhood's End" by Arthur Clarke.

From Amazon.com,

 

"The Overlords appeared suddenly over every city--intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior to humankind. Benevolent, they made few demands: unify earth, eliminate poverty, and end war. With little rebellion, humankind agreed, and a golden age began. But at what cost? With the advent of peace, man ceases to strive for creative greatness, and a malaise settles over the human race. To those who resist, it becomes evident that the Overlords have an agenda of their own. As civilization approaches the crossroads, will the Overlords spell the end for humankind . . . or the beginning?"

Members can RSVP starting today 8/14/13

    Thank you all for the great discussion last night. We had a couple of challenges but we hung in there and it was a great evening. Thanks again to Chris for hosting, what a beautiful evening to sit along the water, under the stars.

    I haven't laughed that much over a book in quite a while.

    The long table made it kind of tuff, but otherwise it was great: fun people and lively discussion.

    Chris, the outside area sounds great. In that case, anyone interested who has read the book, we'd love to see you there at the Delta King. Being quarters or valet park as the meters run until 8:00 pm in old sac.

      Thanks, Everett. It has been a bit confusing with some of the replies saying to be patient, there will be an email and others saying Delta King. See you there in a bit.

      And then there was the conversation about an overflow location which led to me wondering whether Delta King was "official", "overflow", or just a rumor. So when I did not get an email, I needed to clarify. Thanks again :-) See you in a bit.

  • Jesa D.

    Oops, didn't expect to pop off the wait list or I would have changed my RSVP, sorry!

    September 10, 2013

  • Jennifer

    My kitten is looking very sick and I need to take her to the vet ASAP. I had to change my RSVP, sorry about that, I don't like to cancel. Someone else can at least have my spot though.

    September 10, 2013

  • Corrine

    We haven't dropped the location yet - per club policy (see FAQ). But tomorrows meet up is at the Delta King. See you there! (Official email to come out tomorrow- per usual)

    • Sandy V.

      Are we still okay with theBYOB and snack?

      September 10, 2013

  • Dale G.

    I am number 10 on the waiting list. Am I in or out for tonight's meeting at Delta King?

    September 10, 2013

  • Lucy

    won't be able to make it. Hope to next time. Changed my rsvp to no so some else can go. Have a great time!! Really liked the book and look forward to the next meet up.

    September 10, 2013

  • Corrine

    @Deborah - sorry if you don't see it; it's in there! Typically our meetings are at private residences; this is an unusual instance in which it is not. You won't need a chair: bonus! See you @ Delta King tomorrow & 7:00 pm for pre-event and 7:30 for discussion. Thanks!

    September 9, 2013

  • Deborah (Debi) S.

    I can't find the FAQ's to find the reason for not giving the location until the day of the event. I am just curious why that is. Especially if it is important to bring a chair or something. I live in Galt, so not finding out I need to bring something it would be better to at least know the day before.

    September 9, 2013

    • Jesa D.

      The location is usually only revealed by email when it's someone's house. When it's at a bar or the like usually they post it sooner...I'm confused too.

      September 9, 2013

  • Sandy V.

    Oh, I wouldn't have posted it, but since it was in a previous post, I thought it was okay. Sorrrry....

    Loved the book! Looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow and discussing it. In addition to being emailed an address and directions, will we be asked to bring anything to share (food, drink)? This will be my first meeting and I'll be happy to, just need to know because it's a busy week at work and will need to plan ahead.

    See you Tuesday!

    I just made it off the waitlist. I'll need the cliftnotes version of the book to be ready for Tuesday. Looking forward to it.

    Can we have an overflow meetup right next to yours?
    I bought the book for this so I'd like to meet some folks to discuss it.

      That sounds like a really good idea.

    The Overlords are already here: NSA. Say hello to them. They're reading this and everything else you write unless it's highly encripted.

    Love the book; great grist for conversation, but unfortunately, I'll be out of the country next week. Hope to see you all in Oct. Mike
