Temperance - First Friday of the Month, 5:30 pm

With the colder weather, we are now moving indoors.

If you're new to MENSA, you might be misled by the tongue-in-cheek name of this event. Don't let that keep you from joining us on the first Friday of each month at 5:30. The truth is, we drink up and relax after a hard week at work or play (for the retired folks). Some order dinner, others just enjoy the company and a couple of drinks. We will meet at The Stovehouse on Governors Drive. The event is open to all members and their families. Hope to see you there!

Held at:

'The Booth' at Stovehouse
3414 Governors Drive

Book Chat - Second Sunday of the Month, 3:00 pm

The book chat is on hiatus while alternate date/time patterns are considered.

Read any good books lately? Join fellow Mensans for an informal book discussion on Sunday, February 12, at 3:00 pm.

Held at:

Charlie Foster's, a coffee shop located in Gas Light Alley in the Stovehouse

Monthly Dinner Meeting - Third Sunday of the Month, 6:00 pm

Our main event each month is the Dinner Meeting, where we discuss what's going on in our group, take votes for important decisions, and propose new ideas for the future of North Alabama MENSA. Of course, it's not just about the business - it's also a social gathering, where Mensans can talk about their daily lives, make new connections, and simply have a nice evening out. For anyone new to North Alabama MENSA, or MENSA as a whole, this is the perfect place to get started!

We also have a speaker each month at our dinner meetings. These speakers come from all walks of life - and many of them live right here in Alabama. (Some of them are even our very own MENSA members!) There's always something interesting at every dinner meeting, so be sure to check it out!

Don't forget your White Elephants!

Don't forget to bring your White Elephants to the dinner meeting. These are items you no longer treasure, but think someone else will. Items are brought in bags and numbers are assigned to names and the fun begins as random numbers are called. The most popular items are books and magazines - Mensans never have enough to read!


FS&M will not be held this month.

For more information, please see the electronic newsletter on by logging in with your MENSA username and password. (FS&M information is also available in the physical newsletter.)

What's FS&M?

FS&M is short for "Fold, Staple, and Mutilate". Held at the end of every month, it's a time when our North Alabama MENSA members get together to chat and have fun while assembling the next month's newsletters for mailing. If you're looking to get some early info on the month's events, or just looking to talk with some fellow Mensans, then come join us!
