A Busy Day in Atlanta...

Monday, October 5 - the first day of Chol ha-Moed Sukkot, if you're keeping track - was a busy day for a few Atlanta-area Men's Clubs.

I began my day (after morning Minyan, that is) at the Standard Club in John's Creek, where Congregation Etz Chaim's Men's Club and Sisterhood held their second annual Golf and Tennis Tournament.

The weather threatened to turn the day into a soupy, muddy botch - but we dodged a bullet there. The tennis activities were moved indoors, and the morning's rains had pretty much ended by the time the Army o' Golfers moved into position for the noon shotgun shofar start.

Our team did not finish anywhere close to being in the money, but I didn't care... because I had another destination...

...Congregation Or Hadash, where the Men's Club hosted a "Steak and Scotch in the Sukkah" evening.

[The Or Hadash Men's Club, not incidentally, is our region's newest FJMC-affiliated club. And, I might add, a solid addition to the region, given the excellent turnout for this little soirée. Club president Stan Schnitzer has been active in FJMC at the regional and national level for many years, so he has plenty of useful knowledge that will help OHMC to grow and prosper.]

The steaks were nice thick bone-in ribeyes... a worthy accompaniment to the six fine single-malt Scotch whiskies that were lovingly presented for our tasting pleasure. Caol Ila 12-year-old. Glenlivet French Oak finish 15-year-old. Bunnahabhain 12-year-old. Laphraoig 15-year-old. Jura 16-year-old. Each one excellent; each one with its own distinctive personality.

Kinda like us Men's Club guys.
