Think and Drink - The Skeptic's Cocktail Hour
- When: Wednesday, October 01, 2014 @ 6:00 pm
- Treo, 3835 Tulane Ave, New Orleans, view map
We've been asked every now and then to have a cocktail event to change things up and give people more of a chance to mingle (which you can't do easily at restaurants, of course.)
Treo is a new place on Tulane Avenue that is doing some interesting things with drinks and small plates, so we thought it might be fun to be up on the trendy places.
*** It is very important for us to have accurate numbers for these events, so please be aware of your RSVP. As a courtesy to your organizers and the other guests, if you find out that you will not be attending even as late as the afternoon of the event, please update your RSVP, so we will be as close to the actual number as possible. Thanks for your cooperation!
- When: Friday, October 24, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
- Mid-City Theatre, 3540 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA view map
A little something for the Trekkie in all of us!
Power up the warp drive, set your phasers to stun and prepare to boldly go where no audience, or cast, has gone before as Mid-City Theatre presents "Trek-A-Go-Go", the show where the audience sits in the Captain's chair.
Episode titles and characters of Star Trek: The Original Series are drawn randomly out of a hat, as are the names of our cast members, guaranteeing every performance will be something completely and totally different.
This is a ticketed event and there are other dates available. Scroll down the list to find the best one for you. Click here to purchase tickets.
Volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank
- When: Saturday, November 01, 2014 @ 11:30 am
- Second Harvest Food Bank, 700 Edwards Avenue, New Orleans, LA view map
Here's a chance to do some community volunteering with a very needed, local organization. We'll do food sorting and packing in their warehouse and Saturdays are very coveted shifts, so we want to have a great turn out as the local humanists, right?
Many thanks to Glenn Pearl for taking the lead to organize this activity!
√ The warehouse is not climate controlled so please dress accordingly. Jeans, shorts and t-shirts are acceptable. It should be cooler in November, so come prepared.
√ Outside work is un-shaded, we have sunscreen available, but it is recommended to bring sunglasses, hats and any other necessary sun protection.
√ YOU MUST WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES! Anyone wearing flip-flops or sandals will not be permitted to work the shift.
√ Cold water bottles are available for all volunteers.
Minimum age to volunteer at Second Harvest is 9 years old.
We'll have more info the closer we get to November.
NOSHA Hits the High Seas ~ Cruise With Us!
- When: Saturday, November 29, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
- Cruise Terminal, 100 Convention Center Boulevard, New Orleans, LA view map
Ahoy, or something like that!
Members of NOSHA will be on this 5-day Carnival cruise at the end of November. We regret that the timing may not be convenient for every schedule. However, the starting price of an interior cabin is appealing ($299 and up) which makes this one of the most affordable cruises between the major holidays.
Check here for the itinerary and room selections! (You will need to go through their online reservation process which will be identified at the website. This is only an info page, so you know the details that you will be selecting.)
If you've never taken a cruise, then trying out 5-days is an easy start. For the price, you can't take a land vacation that includes all the food, hotel and amenities for less than this per day. And someone else is doing all the driving (well, sailing) for a change.
But don 't worry, this will be relaxed! There won't be any requirements or secret handshakes. We will set a short meetup event on each day at sea for anyone wishing to visit with fellow NOSHANs , but otherwise, you are encouraged to do what you and your family enjoys. It's your getaway! But chances are you will meet some nice people who enjoy doing some of the same things.
If you have any questions, please feel free to post.
