Thursday, November 17, 7:15 pm
"Spoons"  & Cider  Game Night!  .
(Please bring canned and non-perishable food items to benefit local Staten Island charity.)
Back by popular demand, join us as long-time member Joe G. leads us in "Spoons," the funny, fast paced game involving game cards and spoons. As in the game musical chairs, there is always one fewer spoon than there are players. No experience necessary, though being quick can't hurt! Just in time to learn or relearn the game in order to play with those around the Thanksgiving table. There will be a couple of board games available for those who wish to play something else.
Afterwards, enjoy pumpkin pie and cider.
