Boston Skeptics in the Pub: October 20!

I know, we just finished our fun drinky time with Blake Stacey’s marvelous September talk, but it’s time to look to the future: Sid Rodrigues of London Skeptics in the Pub will be gracing our stage in two short weeks!

Also, we have the opportunity to get together the following Monday (the 27th). Are you all tuckered out, or ready for more? We could have a costume party, spooky-themed skeptical trivia, or just a night of hanging out.

OR, we could have a costumed skeptical bar hop on Friday the 31st. Please, people, tell me what to do! (I’m soliciting comments here, on Facebook, and Skepchick just to hedge my bets.) The full details of our October 20 event are after the jump!

Skeptics in the Pub: Monday, September 29

Yeah yeah yeah, it took me forever to update, but I have a good excuse: I’m very lazy busy.

This month’s special SitP guest is none other than Blake Stacey of ScienceBlogs’ Science After Sunclipse speaking about physics and hallucinations. BYOLSD!

Once again, we’ll take over the top floor of the super fun Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square, beginning at 7pm. They have food, booze, and very pleasant waitstaff. There are parking garages around, or you can take the T (Red Line to Harvard Square).

Here’s the Facebook Event Page if you’d like to RSVP (though that’s not required)! To get future Facebook event invites, sign up for the Boston-area Skeptics group!

Skeptics in the Pub: Monday, August 25

Is it that time again already? Answer: YES IT IS! Last month’s trivia night was a huge success — more than 60 people showed up and had a hilariously awesome time getting brainy with fellow critical thinkers. So, the lectures will start again in the fall, but in the meantime we’re going to do another trivia night.

Again, no sports questions! And you don’t have to be a mega-skeptic to get all the questions, so bring your friends.

Once again, we’ll have prizes for the top spots and maybe one for the bottom spot, too. Be there! (Oh, and by there I mean: Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square, with trivia starting at 7pm sharp!)

Boston Skeptics in the Pub: July 28

It’s time for the July edition of Boston Skeptics in the Pub! Because every available speaker is outside the Hub for the summer, we’re having a very special event that is sure to be at least 19 kinds of awesome:

SKEPTICAL TRIVIA!

Individual or team trivia in several rounds, with fun prizes for winners!

The questions will involve science, pseudoscience, and critical thinking. Also: no sports questions. Nerds!

Feel free to invite your friends, even if they don’t consider themselves skeptics. There will be a wide range of questions and much fun no matter what.

Once again, we will take over the top floor of Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square. Trivia starts at 7pm or very shortly thereafter, so try to be on time!

As always, you can RSVP on Facebook.

No Skeptics in the Pub Tonight

Sorry! I got all wrapped up in The Amaz!ng Meeting in Las Vegas, which just concluded. However, if you’d still like to get together tonight at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square to drink with fellow skeptics, post below in the comments. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it, since I will be crashing hard tonight following the past four days of skeptical debauchery.

Stay tuned for news of next month’s gathering!

Success!

Monday’s Skeptics in the Pub was a smashing success. Once again, we got about 60 people, some of whom happened to be wearing masks this time. Pics are up on Flickr, video is coming soon! Thanks again to Patty for a fabulous, informative talk that I wrote about yesterday on Skepchick.

Coming up next: not an official Skeptics in the Pub event, but this Tuesday, June 3, I’ll be meeting up with a load of SGU listeners in town for a conference! You don’t have to be a microbiologist to attend.

We’ll be at Legal Sea Foods, 255 State Street, on the Boston Waterfront, at 6:30pm. I’ll be the one who looks
