Check back for additional details as we make arrangements for favorites such as the Cheese Tasting and Pub Crawl, and new entertainment just for this event.

Friday Night Pub Crawl

We check out some of the waterfront hot spots with beautiful ocean views. Van transportation between the general Pub Crawl area and the hotel will be available and crawlers will have a planned order of stops… but once the Crawl departs there is no set time at each stop! $5 fee.

Annual Business Meeting

All Mensa members (no guests, please) are welcome to find out what has happened in GLAAM during the preceding year and what the Board’s vision is for the future.

Games in our dedicated Game Room

Visit our Games page for much more information.

Generation X/Y Meet & Greet

Want to meet others your age? GenX and Gen Y will get together to start the RG off right. We are open to anyone interested in activities and discussions focused on people in Generation X (1961–1981) or Y (1976–1990), which is anyone in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.

GLAAM Awards

Greater Los Angeles Area Mensa has over 50 years of dedicated volunteer service that has made us the organization we are today and will be in the coming years. We celebrate the consistent and longstanding efforts of the amazing members who have given sustained and consistent service over the years through induction into the Hall of Fame and recognition of different service levels. In this very brief ceremony, we celebrate and welcome new Hall of Fame inductees, acknowledge any changes in someone’s Hall of Fame status, and present our Rookie of the Year and Member of the Year awards. All Hall of Fame honorees are encouraged to wear their badges and be present to celebrate the new inductees.
