Second Thursday of the Month Euchre

Please note the new location!

This is our regularly scheduled social euchre night. We usually start play around 7:00 pm and wrap up at 9:45 pm. For those new or haven't been in awhile, here is some basic information about our meetup:

1. If you are new to the game and don't know the rules, please do not sign-up on the website. Email me to let me know that you want to learn to play. We count on having 4 people who can play the game at a table. We absolutely love teaching the game, but we will go through the game, have you watch, and then coach you through. This means that I can't be at another table.

2. We have a number of casual games going on all night. We also play stick the dealer (ask if you don't know this variation).

3. This month, we are at Teaism.  The address is above and thanks to Angie for being willing to be the host that night.  While there isn't a minimum for us to have the room, it would be great if people would patronize the restaurant--food, drink, etc. 

4. Euchre is a 4 person game--yes, I know there are 3 person variations, but most people prefer the 4 person game. What this means is that if you sign-up, we are counting on you to be there. If this month is like the previous months, we will have a wait list. Please be considerate and make your final decision as soon as possible. The deadline for RSVP is 2 days prior to the meet-up. Please update by that time, especially if you are going to cancel your RSVP. This allows me some time to try and fill out the tables. Of course, I understand that you may get sick on the day. We are happy to have you stay home if you get sick. Otherwise, come play. A good evening of food, drink, cards, and friendship may be all that you need to be more productive the next day. Thanks!!

5. If you have never been, we are a friendly group and welcome everyone to come. Very few people come with a friend or spouse. What this means is that it will not be awkward to arrive alone. It is better than a happy hour because it is easy to make conversation about cards. You don't have to even ask the dreaded "what do you do?" question. If you come three times, you are a regular.

6.  There are some costs associated with meetup--I have to pay Meetup every 6 months for listing on their website. They don't work off of advertising fees. We pass the bowl around and ask people to throw a $1 in each time they come.

    Nice location, easy access. Food good, prices reasonable. Nice that they closed off part of the back section for us. We could mill around a bit and sit at other tables to chat or eat when you wanted a break between games.

    It was better than the other place. Much quieter. But, I agree with Randi. It is more fun in a home where you can take a break and hang out in the kitchen andtalk with others not playing.
    Still, a nice option to have when no one's home is available or big enough. They were kind enough to set aside a section just for us which worked well.

    I liked it, though it doesn't compare to having it at Christine's. (I like shmoozing in the kitchen with people!)
    The food was interesting and not too expensive.
    I thought I was going to have to pay for parking, but the machine wouldn't accept my validation card from Teaism and since I was the last car i garage, they just let me go - added bonus!
    Not too bad is what I would say....I would go there again. (I caved and bought an oatmeal cookie-was worth 5 times what it cost!)

    Very nice to see all the new people. Welcome!
    Hopefully, your cards were better than mine.

    I apologize for not making it tonight. A late meeting with my general popped up and I'm just now getting home. Hopefully, this will not happen next month!

    I think something is wrong. 2 attending and 7 waiting? I don't think you changed the number of attendees allowed.
