Escape the Room!

Do you have what it takes to escape the room?

http://pittsburgh.escapetheroom.com/

We’ve booked a ten person room, so the first five couples to RSVP are guaranteed a spot, but don’t worry if you didn’t make the cut. Add your name to the wait list and as soon as we have another four couples, I’ll book the second room. If there are still interested couples after both rooms are full, we do  have the option of adding earlier or later time slots, so don’t hesitate to add your name to the list. We’ll be as flexible as we can to accommodate lots of players.

Once we know how many people will join us, I’ll provide further details about where to meet for a drink or snack before or after your start time.

Cost is $28 per person.

We welcome everyone!

Couples Event: Autumn Chill

Grab your date, cross your fingers for cooler weather, and come chill with us. We thought we’d keep it casual for our first couples event, so dress to be comfortable for an evening of backyard fun at Ashley & Jake Collins’s house (2465 Corteland Drive).

We’ll set up the fire pit and pull out Kubb and Bocce. Play some games or just hang out and get to know your fellow Newcomers.

BYOB and a snack to share. Please RSVP.

No sitter? Head on over to our private Facebook group and ask for a recommendation. Our members know lots of sitters and we’re happy to share.

September Book Club: The Good Girl

Monday September 21, 2015 7:30 PM
 

Please join us on Monday, September 21st at 7:30 in Julie Welter’s home (1266 Sun Ridge Drive) for September’s book club meeting to discuss Mary Kubica’s novel, The Good Girl. Even if (or perhaps especially if) the last thing you read was Good Night Moon, please come for the laughter, food and drinks. I know this has been written often, but if you don’t have time to read the book please come anyway. Reading the book may be an easy way to create a common connection, but forming friendships certainly doesn’t involve required reading. Please bring your favorite thing to snack on or drink!

Newcomers’ Bonfire

Saturday October 3, 2015 5:30 PM to 4:53 PM
 
Saturday, October 3rd  from 5:30 – 9:00
Simmons Farm – 170 Simmons Rd. – McMurray, PA 15317
Cost $35   
Come one, come all to celebrate fall with a hayride and bonfire at Simmons Farm on Saturday, October 3rd from 5:30 – 9:00 pm. We will take a hay ride around the farm and then enjoy a fall inspired dinner of roasted hot dogs and s’mores at our own private bonfire. The $35 cost includes the hayride, bonfire, hot dog dinner, and s’mores. SPACE IS LIMITED so be sure to RSVP early to secure your place on the wagon. We also ask that you bring an item or two for the benefit of the event: chips (2 bags), fruit, veggies and dip, 2 liter beverages (2 bottles).
In the RSVP include the names and ages of each person attending the event along with the food item from the above list you plan on bringing.  
The fine print: We will meet at the farm at 5:30 to gather together and transport our food items to the bonfire site. Hayride begins promptly at 6:00. There will be crates to sit on at the fire site and roasting sticks available. We will have access to part of the pavilion for our use that includes picnic tables, lights/electricity. Children can play on a nearby small playground until it gets dark. No alcohol is permitted. Finally, remember its a few degrees colder on the hayride, so dress warm or bring blankets. Please remember if you RSVP ‘Yes’ to attend you are responsible for the cost or finding a replacement attendee in the event you are unable to attend.
There are currently no open slots for this event. If you would like to be on the waiting list, contact Sydna Burns.
