Zombie Casserole (two midnight showings) - cast members include two of our fellow Mensans
Also don’t forget, there will be Tournaments in addition
to the programs.
We will also offer the following traditional
The Annual Pig Roast
Gather in the hospitality area and catch up with your friends while enjoying this
tender, moist delicacy accompanied with tasty sides. Although technically a meal,
this dinner has become an event that draws many people into attending on Thursday.
The Friday night costume party is one of the things that set Chicago
Area Mensa’s RG apart from all the others. Mensan grown-ups
take dressing up to a new level. Costumes range from fanciful to
funny to elaborate and elegant, but the thing for which Mensans are
best known are the pun and word-play costumes. In all of them,
Mensa-style creativity is obvious. Bring your costume, sense of
humor, and your wits, because our puns will keep you guessing and
giggling all night long. Make sure to consider this year's theme,
ripe for pun-filled humor! View our pictures
to see costumes from ’WeeMs past.
The kids costume parade will precede the adult
costumes as in past years to encourage more adults to attend and support
A photo id will be required for any adult picking up Pretentious Drinking
coupons. You will not be able to get them for other adults in your party.
The ID will also be required at the Pretentious Drinking event.
Liqueurs. The fancy stuff. Polished, cosmopolitan, perhaps even a bit
snooty. The stuff you graduate to from beer and wine. You’d like
to know more but, gosh, look at that price. What if that pricey potion
isn’t quite the palate pleaser you expected? Rejoice! As in years
past, you can sample some truly amazing liqueurs, and your
money’s no good here! We will supply a wide range of weird and
wonderful concoctions from around the world. You can determine which
you’d like to own, which should be left on the shelf, and which
you should give to your arch-nemesis as a thoughtful gift. Obviously,
you must be of legal drinking age to join us. Snobbish accents and
extended pinkies optional.
For those under 21 but still awake at that late hour, in addition to the daily
version, we will offer a
special Werewolf tournament just for teens and tweens during the same
timeslot as Pretentious Drinking.
For those who are not of age or those who are of age but who
prefer not to indulge in alcohol, we will have a room set aside for
an improved version of last year’s
socializing without alcoholic lubrication event.
Come test your skills at ad hoc haute cuisine. The competitors in the fourth annual
Iron Chef Hospitality will have one hour to create a three-course meal
from whatever food they can find in hospitality supplies, including leftovers from
previous meals. Some small additional ingredients may be brought in from the outside,
but all preparation must take place at the event. *Allez cuisine!*
It may start earlier this year.
Amazing Race: WeeM Style Tournament
Join us for a repeat of the Amazing Race for Mensans! Based upon the popular TV reality show,
teams of 2-4 competitors complete a variety of tasks, some cerebral, some lighthearted,
on their way to the final “Pit Stop” and victors’ bragging rights.
Our version is designed for all ages and activity levels, and is sure to be one of the
most memorable things you’ll do this weekend!
