June is usually a banner month and it is the official start of summer. Do you feel lucky? The sixth month of the year is somewhat lucky especially if you are having a wedding or if you just want to see another significant event like the Summer Solstice. Both of these events in June are remarkable for many of us. In addition, it’s perhaps the most fun time of the year. This web editor is thinking that this is possibly because of the longer daytime hours and the warmer daily high temperatures. It does seem like June offers something for everyone to find enjoyment in just by accepting and embracing it.
The Millennial/Gen X team got their tail-ends handed to them at trivia night at the Hi-Dive, so they are upping the ante and playing for money in June at the Westport Flea Market Bar & Grill trivia night, June 5th. Trivia starts at 8 pm and each player puts in $5 (no matter team size). Be there at 6:30 pm to help us stake a table, and order one of the tasty, tasty burgers. According to The Food Network’s Meat and Potatoes and The Pitch, their burgers are the best in Kansas City. If you’re a Millennial or GenX-er and a Mensan, then come join us!
The Full Moon SciFi SIG launch event in April was fun. Everyone seemed to enjoy the campy send-up of Octaman provided by the folks from RiffTrax. So, next don your Browncoats and Jayne hats because we ‘aim to misbehave’ and screen Joss Whedon’s terrific ode to being on the wrong side of history: Serenity. Check the June Mension for more details (and the right contact info) about attending this shindig event. Hopefully more Mensans will want to connect with this new SIG! Also, join the FullMoonSciFi Yahoo group for a chance to participate in selecting the content of future screenings.
