|Welcome to the only official Mensa organization in Japan,
"Mensans in Japan," SIG. We are presently a small but growing group
of multinational members, many of whom are long term residents of Japan
who meet once a month on the second Sunday fora casual dinner and socializing in Akasaka. Rejoining Mensans from around the world, potential Mensans and of course, Guests are most welcome to join us!

This SIG was started for the hang loose, sit back and relax, on a Saturday night. It has survived and continues to thrive. For the game players, when bored, they slip away for chess, Scrabble®, backgammon, and eating. Ah yes, eating! Give it a try, relaxing the brain may become addictive. (Smoking outside. Two dogs in residence. Wheelchair accessible.)
The Ancient Civilizations SIG focuses at each meeting on a different
civilization or topic from the ancient world. We have covered
just about every subject since starting in 1989. The present plan
for the SIG is to announce restaurant meetings timed to precede
lectures sponsored by the California Museum of Ancient Art. Watch
the calendar for SIG events or call John Halloran, or Richard
We are working on a specific project in conjunction with the non-profit
Harmony Research Group to construct a single, comprehensive, and non-partisan
agenda comprising solutions to all of the political, economic, and social
problems facing America today, because we believe that all of these issues
inter-relate, and that no proposed solution to any one issue can be truly
effective unless consideration is first given to its effects on all other
aspects of our social order. We have built up an outline of over 750
questions to answer, and never move on to the next question until we get
complete consensus on the previous one. Two sub-groups are working on this
project independently, so that we can compare and contrast the results:
Mensans meet on Mondays, and non-Mensans on Wednesdays. It's a bit of work,
but also quite a bit of fun, and a very fulfilling and rewarding experience,
as we use our mental talents for something truly constructive.

The Raison d'ętre of the Bike SIG is to get better at riding
bicycles and have some fun at the same time. Since Mensa doesn't
have a lot of professional cyclists in its ranks, you would think
this would be a pretty simple goal to implement. Wrong. For many
Mensans, a tough workout is walking out to the car, there to drive
to the Speed Scrabble® Tournament and all-you-can-eat buffet. For
this reason, the Bike SIG is forced to lure potential members
with added incentives to participate (a.k.a. "bait").
Examples include monthly group rides where you can meet Lycra
clad attractive members of the opposite sex, or beach runs where
we ogle Speedo gods and bikini goddesses. For those of you out
there who don't respond to sun and sex, the Bike SIG offers cheesy
gimmicks such as improved health, weight loss, and the ability
(with proper training) to pig out with impunity. Yes, you can
do it, because we did.
The Valley bridge SIG meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each
month at 7 pm at the home of Marylyn Margarit in Northridge. For
a small donation you will enjoy wine, soft drinks, snacks and
three hours of bridge and pleasant company. We change partners
every hand and score Chicago style. Skill levels range from novice
to Life Master. Our only requirement is that you love to play
the third Saturday of each month. See calendar
entry for contact information for SIG leader Ted Kamsler (left).
The gathering is generally 7 to 12 people and the discussion
is lively covering topics of interest brought up by those attending.
New ideas are broached, discussed, criticized and modified by
intelligent minds which do not object to being used as a "sounding
board". Also the gathering of friends chit-chat so that this
is a SIG which you can look forward to attending. We meet at Burger
Continental generally in the patio and partake in the all-you-can-eat
(as-often-as-you-want) champagne brunch. The best in all of Southern
California. We regulars will be looking forward to the new attendees
who will be sure to become regulars.
It is the purpose and intent of The Christian Apologetics Special
Interest Group to provide a forum for the positive presentation
of answers to honest intellectual questions, both historic and
contemporary, which have been asked of Christianity regarding
its truth and validity. We welcome Mensans, friends, and family;
Christians, Atheists, and members of other religions. In other
words, we welcome all who have a interest in the rational discussion
of the truth of the Christian position. Come and join us for a
time of open, rational, and civil discussion, while snacking on
cookies, popcorn, and soft drinks. We hold monthly discussion
meetings; usually on the fourth Friday of the month. Please call
for current schedule.
A genuine philosophical discussion group heads the Wish List of
many Mensa members. In response, GLAAM presents a SIG dedicated
solely to the discussion and resolution of serious philosophical
issues. Epiphanies, Epistemology, and Ample Eats is a monthly
meeting of Mensa minds. All Mensans are welcome to this free,
second-Thursday meeting 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. at Leon's Steak
House, 10945 Victory (at Vineland), N. Hollywood (533 A8). Free parking.
A position paper on the monthly topic
is available by mail about one week in advance from SIG leader
Rich Kapnick (left). See the L.A. Mentary calendar for more information.
Ever wanted to take the time to play a long game of Monopoly® or Risk®, or
several short games of Othello, 9-ball, or hearts, but had difficulty getting
enough other people together at the same time that you had time? If so, we
have solved your problem. We carve out the entire afternoon and evening --
from noon to midnight -- on the last Saturday of every month to get together
and relax, play some games, eat and drink heartily, and basically do whatever
we feel like. We have a pool table, a ping pong table, a swimming pool, a sauna,
and a rec room where we play any of
dozens of different games, from checkers to Trivial Pursuit®, cribbage to Go-Moku®. Attendance is FREE to both Mensans and non-Mensans, but we ask that
everyone bring some food to share, or contribute a few bucks for ordering out.
Wine is provided in large amounts. This is rapidly becoming one of the more
popular events in L.A. Mensa. Call for directions and other info.
Are you in your 20's or 30's? Do you at least *feel* like you're in your 20's or 30's? Then the Young M's is just for you!
I'll admit it, our goals are selfish: we want to meet people OUR AGE who are struggling with the same issues we are, facing the same kinds of life changes... and who deal with them the way any young thing would: via PAAAR-TAY!! :)
Something missing you want to try? Call us! E-mail us! Cash bribes accepted (j/k!)!
