Hey all. I know there aren't many of us here in snowy Utah, but I thought it might be nice to have a board game night. It could be potluck style or we could get dinner or order in. I'm open to any ideas, as long as drinking and games are involved I'm in. I can host, I have a pretty big living area, a nice dog, and a ton of games, or maybe someone more central located might want to volunteer. Who's in?
The second installment of Santa For… events is stuffing your stocking on December 23rd at the Count Basie Theatre for a night of comedy and music. Designed to raise funds and awareness for Lunch Break, this three-hour jingle balling of a show boasts the comedic antics of Brian Kirk and the musical talent of the Jirks together with national artists Elliot Lurie (lead singer of The Looking Glass), Bobby Kimball (original lead singer of Toto) and THE NERDS.

Open invitation to any Portland Mefites who for whatever reason aren't planning to spend the holiday otherwise occupied visiting or being visited by relatives, and are interested in getting together during the weekend of Dec. 22nd - or perhaps 29th? - for a relaxed and calorie-filled nondenominational dinner. I'd be willing to host, as well as roast or smoke meat of some sort. People could bring side-dishes / desserts / drinks - you know, the usual. We can toast the season, have some fun, and avoid sitting home alone in the dark drinking box wine and feeling maudlin and sorry for ourselves! Yay! [more inside]
