Portola Valley | October 16, 2014, 6:30 PM

3915 Alpine Road
Portola Valley, California

Join fellow south peninsula-area Reedies at a classic location. The Alpine Inn (née Zot's) is a relaxed beer and burger joint in Portola Valley, which is easy to get to from I-280. Weather permitting, we will meet in the back outside at a table near the fence closest to the parking lot.

Look for the purple stuffed Griffin and/or Reed pennant on the table. We have a few regulars and a larger number of fascinating Reedies who drop in once or infrequently.

Directions: Take Alpine Road west from I-280 for two miles. Take a left on Arastradero and an immediate right into the parking lot. There is a clearly marked left turn lane here, it is a unique feature. Proceed very carefully: visibility is poor and bicyclists abound. If you hit Portola Road on the right, you've gone too far.

Keep an eye out for cyclists!

Annual DC Alumni Chapter Picnic

4-7 p.m.

Bring kids, friends, and family to our annual picnic in the luxurious backyard and gardens of the Goodwin/Bell residence. Hamburgers, hot dogs and corn will be on the grill, along with vegetarian fare. Beer and soft drinks will be served as well. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share, and chip in to the kitty: $10 for alumni 2009 or earlier (with their families, $25), $7 for alumni 2010 or later (with their families, $15), free for returning and incoming students (with their families, $10). Because the location is not Metro accessible, Paul Levy '72 is matching those willing to give rides with those needing a ride to the picnic. The picnic also constitutes the annual meeting of the Washington, DC chapter: we will elect officers and ratify (or not) recently adopted bylaws (linked from the chapter web page mentioned above). RSVP to Paul Levy '72 at plevy@citizen.org; please indicate what dish you'll bring, and whether you need a ride or can provide a ride.

Rainier Book Group: September: “The Infatuations,” by Javier Marías

“The Infatuations” is a suspenseful, sometimes funny, sometimes morally challenging, novel, presented mainly in the voices of María and (to a lesser extent) Javier.  The two are involved with each other and, in different ways, with the two members of a “perfect couple,” one of whom has met a violent death under circumstances that become increasingly mysterious as the novel unfolds.  The relation between literature and (other aspects of) life, and the thin line between what we may imagine and what we are capable, under the right (or wrong) circumstances, of doing, are important themes.  “The Infatuations” was shortlisted for the 2014 National Book Critics Circle Award (Fiction) and was ranked among the NYT’s 100 notable books of 2013.  Here is a link to the NYT review:
