Mardi Gras party--laissez les bons temps rouler!

  • February 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Our House

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 may be there... I'm still not sure. I'm staying with my girlfriend in College Park MD. (She is unavailable to join me.)

    There's a chance I won't be able to make it but I hope to. This will be my first Mensa event in the DMV area. I'm looking forward to finally meeting some fellow Mensans.

      C_Si_Bon: Next month's big MWM events are in Bethesda & Rockville. I hope to meet you soon! :)

    Quick update: Because this is a party for Metro Washington Mensa and not just GenX-Ms, we'll have 35+ in attendance. (This year we may have more because people are asking if they can bring their non-Mensan friends.) If you've never been to an MWM event, this is a good one to choose, because you'll see a nice cross-section of members. See you guys Saturday night!

      Also, note that the 35+ in attendance is the number of people, not the age range! Sorry if I was confusing in my message.

    I'll be skiing at Whitetail until about 4. Hope that gives me enough time to get back & then into DC.

    We'll have to miss this year - going to see the nerdiest chef around: Alton Brown!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
