Second Thursday of the Month Euchre

  • Mar 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Please note the new location!

This is our regularly scheduled social euchre night. We usually start play around 7:15 pm and wrap up at 9:45 pm. We are holding this one at Caboose Cafe (see above for information). 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. We will have a 2 drink minimum. Caboose will be selling dinner, snacks, and so forth. The place will be closed to the public. Meals are around 8-9 dollars and drinks are 3-4 dollars. It is a coffee house and we are trying a new place.

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.

    Well, change can be a challenge. I missed having Gary bartending (even though I don't drink vodka), and Mark (Guido) and others bringing decadent and novel food, and groups of us standing around in the kitchen chatting. But I do get it that Christine's house isn't going to continue to work (many thanks for sharing it with us as long as you did, Christine!). The proprietors at Caboose were very nice and the space was comfortable. I thought the buffet was adequate -- not what I'd normally spend $12 on for food, but I understand that we're paying for the space more than the food (and the brownies were really good!). I had a fine time, and it was great to see everyone, as always.

    And thank you, Gary, for all the legwork you did on this one!

    Cheers ~

    My birthday is Friday and I'm celebrating early by playing euchre.

    One other little tidbit of info ... the buffet is available throughout the evening... meaning that once you buy in to it you can pick and graze while we play cards. So it isn't like you have to get their early... eat quickly .. and then go play cards. You can also order your drinks up at the counter ... OR ... when time allows someone will pop by the tables and see if anyone wants anything.

    I'm sorry I'm now not able to make this. And I've been looking forward to finally being able to play! I apologize for the late notice. Hopefully next month.

    Hello everyone, we are currently at 36 for tomorrow's Euchre (which is a nice 9 table number). We've lost a considerable amount of people from Monday to today, and I'm trying to convince myself that it isn't because I smell bad or anything :)

    Of course we don't want you to come if you're really truly totally sick or anything, but we only get together once a month for a whopping 3 hours so the more the merrier.

    I'm going to tell Rhoda we are at 36 and she will prepare accordingly. Looking forward to see ya all tomorrow and trying out the new venue. :)
