Star Lite Events
Pub Crawl – Friday, 7pm:
This Popular Event was planned by Master Crawl Master Justin Kis who is unable to join us this year … but we will forge ahead with his detailed instructions! Leaving the Marriott on Friday Night at 7:00pm we will head over to Ventura Blvd. to check out some of the interesting spots nearby. Transportation between the general Pub Crawl area and the Marriott 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!
BYOB Wine Tasting – Friday, 8pm:
Back by popular demand! This program invites attendees to bring a bottle of wine to share with others on Friday night! Enjoy fellowship with other Mensans and you enjoy the delightful tastes of your fellow wine connoisseurs!

Cheese tasting: American artisanal cheeses, mostly made in California – Saturday, 2:00pm
Selection will depend on availability, but will include gouda, cheddar, goat and at least one ‘name’ cheese. Because cheese of this quality is $16-$25/pound, charge is $4 per person.
Chocolate tasting: Filled and flavored chocolates – Saturday, 4:00pm
Selection includes chocolates from (among others) Vosges, Dolfin, Frango and LA artisans, with a couple of low-end chocolates for comparison. Because the high-end brands are $35+ per pound, the charge for this tasting is $4/person.
