CNJM holds a gathering each month on a variety of eclectic topics that have included: guitar-making, military police dog demonstration, NJ tombstone markings, revolutionary war mutinies, and quantum physics proving love (to name a few). These presentations are usually held on the 2nd Friday at 8:00 PM in the APA Hotel Woodbridge (formerly Woodbridge Hilton) in Iselin, NJ.

Members, guests, and potential members are all welcomed. Admission is now free.

At 6:30 PM (before the gathering) please join your Mensan peers for dinner and sparkling conversation at Le Cafe Metro...casual dining overlooking the hotel's lobby. Please join us for dinner, the program, or both.

Gala Games Night

We are going to try to schedule a Gala Games night semiannually. We guarantee that you will have a fabulous time if you come and join us for a night filled with, you guessed it, games, games and more games. Come and play an old favorite or join in and learn a new game you haven’t ever played before. Your hosts Java Joe and Lauralee are consummate game players who will be there playing. In addition to playing cards and old standards like Scrabble, Java Joe will supply several games from his collection including many games played at Mensa Mind Games (MMG) over the years. Here is a list of some of the games that Joe will bring: Ticket to Ride; Compounded; Lanterns, the Harvest Festival; Musee; Pyramix; and Dizios

Please join with us for dinner and games. Either play the games we bring or, even better, bring some of your own favorites to share with other Mensans. You can contact either Joe or Lauralee if there is a game you have always wanted to try, who knows, one of us just might have it.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
