Our first event of the year was Star Wars brunch at Via Real, and it was a sold out house! We certainly attracted a lot of attention as we got in line for the buffet with all our Star Wars tshirts, leggings, skirts, earrings, and other gear, though one person did commit the terrible error of asking why we were wearing Star Trek gear (gasp!). We got a fun, and challenging, word scramble of Star Wars characters to complete at our tables, as well as some themed drink recipes to try out at home.
The menu at Via Real is always a favorite, with plenty of breakfast and lunch food to choose from, and a fantastic dessert selection (with a chocolate fountain!) as well. We were also treated to bottomless mimosas and poinsettias.
We had a few birthdays this month, and our birthday ladies were surprised and delighted to receive small bags of Star Wars themed birthday swag. If you want your birthday celebrated, please make sure you sign up as a member and fill out your information on our website!
The raffle was eagerly anticipated, with some really lovely canvas prints, a BB8 pillow, some Star Wars shot glasses, a Star Wars dress, a couple of paid memberships to Ladies Who Geek, and much more.
We have some wonderful events coming up in February! We have a Galentine’s Day lunch at RJ Mexican Cuisine of Dallas on February 11, 12-3pm, with tickets available now, and we also will have a happy hour later in the month, details TBA. Please also remember that we’d love to hear from you at any time with ideas, comments, and suggestions – you can let us know using the Member Suggestion Box on our website.
