Mardi Gras party--laissez les bon temps roulez!

  • This location is shown only to members

Celebrate Mardi Gras the way only Mensans can -- with good food and great conversation. Join your friends at the home of Heather and Omer Poirier for a Louisiana-style menu of Creole and Cajun food, king cake, assorted appetizers, beer, wine, liquor, and soft drinks. And maybe more, if we decide to really cook.

For those with allergy and/or mobility issues, please note that there are three friendly dogs on the premises (but they can't have any beer because they're underage), and our home does have flights of stairs to navigate.

Some street parking is available; Potomac Avenue Metro is three blocks away.

Day of event contact person is Heather Poirier,[masked] (text preferred).

    I'm excited to attend. I haven't been to a non-Mindgames Mensa event in several years.

    Hi, Krista--If there's a particular thing you'd like to drink, then you might want to bring that. We've got Abita beer plus a couple of other brands, wine, soft drinks, hurricanes, and king cake martinis. Also, I replied to Jim privately about his friends back when he posted the question, but for everyone else, it's great if you want to bring others. The more, the merrier!

    Can I bring anything? I think I'll be parking in Cheverly and metroing over, but if anyone wants to carpool from College Park, I could be talked into it.
