The Palo Alto Scrabble Meetup Group Weekly Meetup

  • Jan 16, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We're a small, silly, smart, friendly, and festive group that meets every Thursday at 7 pm at the at the Palo Alto Café, 2675 Middlefield Road, between the Oregon Expressway and Colorado Avenue. At that hour, the café is pretty quiet; the staff's friendly; our gathering ain't big. You can spot us if you look around for the Scrabble board. I would say that most people would say we're a group that gets more fun out of socializing while we play than we do out of playing like man-eating sharks to beat the pants off each other. (Yes, in my world, sharks wear trousers.)  We're especially glad to have new members or potential members or even one-timers or casual thrill-seekers drop by; and we like building great words while we discuss, oh, dunno, karaoke, labradors, trips, home-remodeling, books, movies, misbehaving significant others, and our various stretches in prison. Oh, and the café has yummy hot and cold drinks, and hearty sandwiches. The café is on the north (SF Bay) side of the street, in a small shopping complex. It's essentially right across Middlefield from Mike's, a wonderful restaurant.

    Didn't get a chance to meet everyone as our group grew to extend across three tables. I was a bit rusty at play but it all came back to me quickly. Marc was an attentive host/organizer to make sure everyone had a place to join in and play. I had a wonderful time with the game(s) and with the new friends I met. Thanks, all.

      It was a pleasure to have you with us, Pete; thank you for this note of appreciation!

    I'm glad, Linda. Jealousy and fun, triumph and betrayal, torment and redemption—that's what we're all about.

    Great fun last night. There was a large turnout and even though I had lousy letters, I had fun. Lady sitting at another table (not part of our group) told us she was jealous that we were having so much fun!
