April 2020 Events
Unfortunately, the North Alabama MENSA events for April 2020 have been cancelled. The descriptions of our usual events have been kept here so that you can still see what our normal events are like. Please stay tuned for more information on upcoming events and activities.
Please also note that print newsletters have unfortunately been suspended for the time being. You can still access our newsletters digitally at us.mensa.org by logging in with your MENSA username and password here.
Temperance - First Friday of the Month, 5:30 pm
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 meet at Tim's Cajun Kitchen on Jordan Lane. The event is open to all members and their families. Hope to see you there!
Tim’s Cajun Kitchen
114 Jordan Lane NW, Huntsville (just north of I-565)
Games Night - Second Sunday of the Month, 5:00 pm
On the second Sunday of every month, we hold a Games Night at Lucky Dice Cafe. It's no secret Mensans love board games, and Lucky Dice has tons of them for patrons to play! Bring your family and friends, and join us for some food and fun!
Lucky Dice Cafe
7914 Memorial Parkway SW, Suite B7
Huntsville, AL 35802
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! Normally, this section of the event description is also where I (the webmaster) put the description of who's speaking, but unfortunately, I don't have any information on that right now... So I guess it'll be a mystery until then!
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 - Last Week of the Month (Time/Date varies)
Usually, our FS&Ms are held at members' homes. For more information, please see the electronic newsletter on us.mensa.org by logging in with your MENSA username and password. (FS&M information is also available in the physical newsletter.)
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!
