Bingo:

Bingo is held every Monday evening in the Superstition Center, Labor Day through Memorial Day. Check the Recurring Activities page or the Calendar for times and the Activity VIP list for contact person for more information.

Bunco:

Bunco was originally “8-Dice cloth” according to the World Bunco Association, a dice game in 18th-century England. It was imported to San Francisco as a gambling activity in 1855. After the Civil War the game evolved to a popular parlor game. During the 1920s and Prohibition, Bunco was re-popularized as a gambling game, often associated with a speakeasy. Bunco as a family game saw a resurgence in popularity in the 1980s.

The MBV group usually meets the second and fourth Thursday afternoon of each month. Check the Recurring Activities page or the Calendar for times and the Activity VIP list for contact person for more information.

Mah Jong

Mah Jong, a game that originated in China, was imported to the United States in the 1920s. It is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a certain degree of chance. The game is played with a set of tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols.

There are several opportunities to play Mah Jong here at MBV–both Oriental and American versions. Check the Recurring Activities page or the Calendar for times and the Activity VIP list for contact person for more information.

Supper Club

The MBV Supper Club is a social group offering members the opportunity to meet and get to know their MBV neighbors while sharing a casual evening of good food in the friendly atmosphere of a member’s home. The suppers are normally held on the second Saturday of each month, January through October. You do not need to attend every month to join; we have many part-time members who go home for the summer months. You will be asked to commit to hosting at least one or two months of your choice. The other months you will be invited by the host or hosts to their home where you will meet and dine with six to eight Supper Club members. You will prepare one of the dishes from the menu in the cookbook (which has been compiled) to bring with you to the host home. It’s not a couples-only club; we encourage singles to join. Check the Activity VIP list for contact person for more information.

The Single Ladies

A group of single ladies get together, laugh, go to the movies, go out to eat, play games, and enjoy each other’s company. Join us the first Wednesday of the month at 9:30 am for a breakfast meeting. Help us plan out activities for the month as well as future outings. Check the Activity VIP list for contact person and for more information.
