Sunday August 21st marked the long-awaited launch for GGB’s Central Jersey chapter! Centro Grille in Robbinsville had a delicious brunch menu with an equally appealing drink special–mimosas and champagne all around! With so many exciting things going on in geek culture lately, we decided to make our first theme simple: Heroes and Villains. Leading up to the event, everyone was encouraged to talk discuss their favorite superheroes and the most dastardly supervillains on our facebook page. Brunchettess came dressed in their favorite and geekiest outfits–not pictured are GGB officer Desiree’s awesome comic-inspired leggings!
Though only a few brunchettes were able to make it, we had a great time and really got to know each other–so quickly, in fact, that we ended up too busy talking and laughing to get to the getting-to-know-you games GGB Officer Ashlee had prepared!
The brunch concluded with a raffle for an adorable vinyl Batgirl bobblehead (1 out of 3, what great odds!) and adorable goodie bags filled with nerdy little treats. We already began discussing next month’s brunch, a possible family-friendly potluck at a local park.
All in all, our first brunch was a success and great fun, and we’re really looking forward to meeting more of our members at our next brunch!
