Boozy Book Club @ NSD

Join us for the next meeting our our boozy book club! We read books with cocktails/drinks in them, then we discuss the book while enjoying some cocktails and spirits that are consumed within the pages of the book. Cost per person is typically $10 for the cocktail samples plus tax/tip, and each person brings a snack for sharing.

Upcoming Book Choices:

  • March 2019: Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly. For March, our date will be Thursday, March 14, and since that is Pi Day, we’re all bringing a form of pie for our snacks.
