Calendar

*** Please Note ***

As things continue to open up, some events will revert to “in-person” while others will remain virtual. All “in person” events require full vaccination.
Check MWW’s Facebook page or website for the latest information.

Unlike the calendar created for the public part of our site, this calendar contains the contact information for each event.

MWW events are organized by members like you. If you don’t see an event that interests you, start one! Just check the monthly calendar for a good date, then send event information to the Editor (calendar@westernwashington.us.mensa.org) by the 10th of the month prior to the event. It’s that simple!

Saturday, January 22

11:45 am Seattle NE DOSIG
Lunch at FLO ANNA’S DINER, 14707 Bothell Way NE in Shoreline. This is an old-fashioned diner featuring American comfort foods (and Greek). Web site says ““We’re Serving Up Good Eats for the Whole Family. WE USE ONLY THE BEST INGREDIENTS THAT KEEP CUSTOMERS COMING BACK! Flo-Anna’s is a quality family diner established in 1993. We provide classic homemade American favorites as well as select Greek cuisine.” Cold January is always good for comfort food.
PLEASE RSVP to mgprior66@gmail.com or – text only! – 206-551-5907, as she is still working full time. Feel free to bring a guest, but you must RSVP. If you do not, you may not find a seat (Mary has reserved space for 8-10).
NE DOSIG will normally meet for brunch/lunch on the fourth Saturday of each month in the general Lake City, Shoreline, Kenmore, Bothell areas. Mary picks a restaurant she would like to try, lets everyone on her email list know when and where, and just enjoys the company of those who want to join her. If you have recommendations, please let her know.
If you wish to be added to the NE DOSIG list, please email Mary your full name, email address, phone number (because we sometimes do impromptu things), and area in which you live. Just as a side note, please also let her know if you have been fully vaccinated. We need to know for indoor dining. Some of us have health issues and we want to be comfortable at the tables.

Feel free to text or call host Larissa Simone at 415-226-6662.

To join by phone: +1 253 215 8782

The Virtual TGIF needs a dedicated, online host!
From Larissa: “Begun a few weeks into the COVID shutdown, it worked wonderfully, until we began to meet again in person. For both social and technical reasons, I, Larissa, haven’t been able to give it the attention it deserves, since then, but have been keeping the Zoom meeting channel open. It is nice to keep it going for those who like to connect but won’t come in person. Some are too far away. Some have other commitments that keep them at home. I hope it will continue to offer a 3-hour window, when folks can tune in anytime. But a new host might choose hours anywhen from 5 ‘til 11pm.
Please email me about your interest to LarissaKSimone@icloud.com”

 

Save the Date (And Hope for the Best)!
