Regular Events

Thirsty Third Thursdays

In the mood to hang out and have something to drink and maybe dinner too? Share conversation and comestibles with fellow Reedies on Thirsty Third Thursday. Check the events calendar below for upcoming meet-ups and look for the Reed table-top sign at a pub/bar/restaurant near you.

Rainier Reading Group

The Rainier reading group typically meets on the third Wednesday of every month, but check the events listings for schedule changes. Meetings start at 7:30 pm and generally end around 9:30. Anyone who has read the month’s selection is invited to take part; new participants are welcome: no long-term commitment is required. If you plan to attend, please e-mail or call the hosts at least two days before the meeting, so they will know how many people to expect, and so you may be notified in the event that the location should change, as sometimes happens. Please direct questions or suggestions to petergreenfield@msn.com.

Wondering what we've been reading? Here's a list of every reading group book through February 2019.

If you have an idea for an event please contact the Rainier/Seattle Steering Committee. We'd love to hear your ideas.
