My mother belongs to the Red Hat club. I think it depends on the chapter but they usually meet for an activity or luncheon (or both) once or twice a month. Mom had never been bowling before the Red Hats. She's already planning for their Christmas gift exchange.

Never heard of them...looks lovely though and hope you have fun =)

The only clubs/societies I've had part in are the Kuvasz Club of America and Hungary (quite the language barrier there...) and the Grand Lodge of Freemasons. The latter is...erm...complicated to say the least - I can, but don't attend all of the 8 yearly meetings - kinda awkward being the ONLY woman in the whole of the place...

Their charter forbids tipping more than 5% on any meal in a restaurant.

Why? 5% seems almost insulting... especially for good service.

I assume it's in their charter based on past experience in the food service industry.

THat's really sad EddieQ. You would think of how many were in that kind of workplace at one time would have understanding and tip even more.
