Game Night in Manchester CT - Oct.
**If you must leave the event and didn't get your check yet, go to the cashier to cash out.** --- The theme for this night will be Halloween --- So come dressed up if you like! Game night has been a fan favorite for the last several years. This is a fun way to break up the nights in fall/winter and to socialize with other hikers! The theme for this event date will of course be Halloween! Come dressed up if you like but remember not everyone will dress up and don't be surprised by that. We plan on having a majority of the dining room to ourselves. We will continue the same as last year and not ask for a donation for facility costs or for a pot-luck item. You will order and pay for what you would like to eat from the varied menu. Parking is sufficient at this plaza. The event will start at 6:30 PM and we must be out by closing at 1 AM (we can stay that late as the bar area will be open). I've set a end time of 11:00 PM but you can stay later if you like. 6:30 PM - 7 PM Gathering, socializing, and drinks. 7 PM Dinner is planned to start so please chose your seat by then. There is some flexibility in when you order your meal so late arrivals could work out but please try to be there by 7 PM. 8:30 PM Checks for food are to be paid for by then to free us to move around for game play. If you must leave and didn't get your check yet, go to the cashier to cash out. 11:00 PM Technical end of event. 1:00 AM All must leave by closing. Food: You can order your own meal or you can order together with your friends. Everyone will have separate checks unless you wish to combine with others. There will be a cash bar for sodas or alcoholic beverages. The menu with prices: No outside food or drink is allowed by the restaurant. Donations: Thank you, but no donations will be sought this year for the event. In previous years food was pot-luck and donations were sought to pay for the meeting hall. Games: Being a restaurant, the table space and layout is somewhat limiting for game play but we will try the best we can to make do. You can always stick to eating and socializing. Some of the "house games" we have already (added a few MORE new ones!) which some or all of which will be brought by your organizer: * Thinkblot * 20 Questions * 20th Anniversary Trivial Pursuit * Who Knew? * Bamboozle * Encore * Ouija * Who Wants to be a Millionaire * Dixit * Fact or Crap * Imagin iff * Jenga (well a knockoff version) * Last Word * Likewise * Loaded Questions * Picture Picture * Rummikub * Scrabble * Sequence * Wits & Wagers * Worst Case Scenario * Would You Rather * Standard Playing Cards (for various card games) * Barista * Battle of the Sexes - Travel version We'd like to see someone bring these as well as anything else: * Bolderdash * Cranium * Pictionary * Bring any other game you might think 4 - 6 people at least could play at the same time. Team games would be great too. **If you RSVP "yes" and later can't go, please remember to change your RSVP so someone else can go. No-shows are not appreciated.** Approximate location directions (269 Middle Turnpike West, Manchester, CT): The Stone and Paddle Italian Restaurant - (860)[masked] (Manchester):
