Games – Dedicated game room
Carnelli: The classic Mensa word-association game consisting of movies, music, books, and whatever else the capricious and arbitrary host will allow.
Cranium: Be a star performer, word worm, creative cat, or data head in this always enjoyable team party game.
Colander/Time's Up: The first round you can say or do virtually anything to give a clue. Second round is one word plus gestures and humming. Final round is strictly humming and pantomime.
Open Mic: Sing, play an instrument, tell jokes, make a political statement, poetry slam. It's all fair game at the StaRGazing 2010 Open Mic.

New Member Reception – Saturday, 2:30pm
Welcome New Mensans! This is your chance to meet your fellow Mensans at GLAAM's largest party of the year – the RG! We'll have a brief period of orientation followed by the opportunity to enjoy the rest of the RG offerings. Please RSVP with either Danielle or Desiree so we know how many to count. Join us for some games, speakers, and dancing fun the rest of the evening!
Mardi Gras Costumed Ball – Saturday, 8:00pm to midnight
Bring out your beads and masks, and dress in your finery. It's Mardi Gras in L.A. After a delicious Cajun feast in hospitality, we'll party and dance the night away to a New Orleans-music-studded mix by Dj Wes Wunder. Includes instruction by professional dancers and MC's Kimi Walker and Jacqui V.
Originally from Harlem, New York, Dj Wes Wunder grew up as Wesley Morris on the rain-kissed streets of Vancouver, British Columbia. A DJ for 10 years and a musician since the age of 4, Wes now runs As You Wish Entertainment, a full service Event DJ company, and has partnered with H2H Entertainment, the nation's #1 interactive entertainment company. You can reach Dj Wes Wunder and As You Wish Entertainment at (818) 564-SPIN, and if Wes isn't rattling the walls with block-rocking beats he may even answer the phone!
A lover of the arts and seasoned actress of stage, TV and film, Kimi often finds herself wearing many hats. She is a theatre coach, instructor and choreographer. While mentoring youth in the community, she also directs, writes and performs docudrama pieces. Kimi created her own line of aroma care products that she makes and sells for boutique sales, baby showers, weddings, spa parties and other special events. She has been a massage therapist for over ten years.
Dance leader Jacqui V is a Los Angelina with roots in the Philippines, and an interactive entertainer for kid's parties, weddings, and corporate events since 2001.
