  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     GREAT idea for a Meetup and very well-organized. Thank you to those who put in so much work to make this happen! UPDATE: I've been to a few more of these now since I wrote the first review, and can only add more positive feedback. The variety of programs and speakers is really fantastic, ranging through physics, ecology, astronomy, chemistry, biology, geology, etc. on a pretty regular basis--no long stretches of nothing but particle physics! The attendance is fantastic, and I meet new and interesting people at almost every event. The regular meetups at Manuel's have a great atmosphere: attentive during the initial presentations and very relaxed and participatory during the Q&A afterwards. The food is your typical pub grub, but not bad, and the wait staff are great, managing the huge crowd with aplomb. They do not split bills--each table of ~ 8 people will get one check, so be prepared to tally up your own total. You can, however, split the check between cash and multiple credit cards.

     My first meet up with the group and enjoyed the event very much -I look forward to attending more! Only wish there had been some sort of meet-up time afterwards - maybe we could have gone somewhere after for further conversation perhaps a beer or something...

     AST is awesome. I am a "normal person" from a Behavioral Science background, so many details in your talks are over my head. However, I still enjoy the challenge of trying to glean some understanding of the topics as a casual observer. Thanks for a truly unique experience in socializing.

     Amazing group of people. Very amusing. 

    Cameron on Dec 11, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     This was my first meeting - and it was well worth the time and effort to get to Tech and find the building (and its entrance!) and the room . . . .

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     One should join this MeetUp group to learn more, and to be exposed to new and interesting scientific happenings. Some of it may be a little over your head, but the speaker is always more than happy to answer questions.

     Wonderful

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     I think it is a great forum for people to learn and to encourage scientific literacy. 

    Alison on Nov 13, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     So far so good, but if last night's talk were the norm, I would not attend unless I had a lot of recent knowledge about the subject at hand. I don't know whether it is possible to indicate how difficult the talk would be to understand with a lot knowledge. Maybe, like the Appalachian Trail Club, you could indicate how steep the slope will be. 

    John Y. on Nov 10, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Great idea, but somewhat better in concept than reality. 

    Shani F. on Nov 10, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Enjoy the group. 

    TJC on Nov 10, 2011.

     Well done. The offerings are well prepared and the presenters are clearly experts in their fields. 

    Winston on Oct 23, 2011.

     One of the best meetups in Atlanta. 

    Don on Oct 5, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     So far so good. This session was of interest because of the education component. Should there ever be an interest to host a lecture regarding college admissions and STEM preparation let me know! 

    Giselle on Sep 29, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     great group of people, looking forward to joining them for future activities!

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Nice group and great conversations. Thanks, Kevin... 

    Kevin on Sep 15, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     A wonderful way for scientists and lay people alike to explore widely varying science topics and to meet and discuss them with other enthusiasts. It's a large group, but feels smaller because of the warm welcome from Marc, who is a marvelous host. 

    Kathy on Sep 5, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     The Atlanta Science Tavern is such a delight for Science lovers. It's fun, informal and really good Science (and almost free). The speakers are real Scientists who talk about their work. It is fascinating to witness the passion they put in it. The diversity of the talks makes you to discover and learn things outside of your expertise background. Thanks to Marc Merlin, the topics are always pertinent and exciting. At the AST meetings, you can drink a beer and be intellectually challenged at the same time!

    Kelly G. on Jul 16, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     I'm frustrated by how many folks are signing up six months in advance. I can't do that, so I'm missing out. I wonder if this shouldn't be split into two groups . . . but the logistics would be a nightmare. 

    Debbie G. on Jun 19, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     My favorite meetup group, although judging from the past lineup of guest speakers, it might be better named Atlanta Biology Meetup (not that I mind). But it sounds like they are trying to broaden their scope. 

    Jason B on Jun 10, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     I'm very impressed. 

    Jane Holmes B. on May 22, 2011.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Well, talking about science is fun, and there really aren't that many people around who either know enough about it to say much, or who have the interest to listen and want to learn more. 

    Ernie C. on Dec 17, 2010.

     An excellent group 

    Maurice F. on Dec 16, 2010.

    Mark B. on Aug 30, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     If you're interested in science as it happens, this is the only place to hear it straight from the people who are doing it on the ground! 

    Andrew S. on Jul 29, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Great idea; reasonable cost for interesting programs in a comfortable venue. Can't beat it! 

    dave b. on Jul 27, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Learn about science! Bring what you understand, are trying to understand and don't understand--discuss with other curious, critical thinkers who share their understanding. Answer some of your questions and discover new questions to explore! People I met who had a more developed science education were open and enthusiastic about sharing this--I really felt there were "no stupid questions" and that people were welcoming of all levels. 

    Liz S. on Jul 26, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Because intellectual curiosity is SO sexy. 

    Stephen on Jul 26, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     The Atlanta Science Tavern is a great way for people already knowledgeable about science or interested to learn more about it to get to know each other and learn from each other in a fun and friendly way. 

    Josh G. on Jul 25, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     A great place to engage in civilized conversation with people who think. 

    FrankP on Jul 25, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     I think it is the best idea I have heard of in years. It is so terrific to find people who have similar interests to me. I am just sorry that it did not happen when I was about 25! Life has certainly expanded for people with the coming of the internet, and "youngsters" (especially women) do not realize how difficult it was to meet and make friends with similar ideas and interests. The only solution was "go to church". Yuck! 

    Carol B. on Jun 27, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     It's a slick way to keep track of your meetings 

    Alan W. on May 23, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     Seeing this many people turn out on a cold rainy night to hear someone speak about science restores my faith in humanity. This is great! 

    John on May 22, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     It's a nice way to meet scientists outside one's own field! 

    David on Mar 27, 2010.

     I am amazed at the number of members in this group! And it is growing fast! 

    Ray S. on Feb 21, 2010.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     I'm tired of watching that glazed look fall over someone's face whenever I talk about what I've recently read. 

    The Mad H. on Dec 29, 2009.

  • The Atlanta Science Tavern

     It's nothing short of a plethora of interesting information, stimulating conversation, and usually a few beers.

     "Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense."-Carl Sagan Understanding the way in which science presents in the real world helps me to cut the meat from the bone of my confusion. I find science soothing and constant...yet flexible. I hope others who come to this group gain the insights for which they search. 

    LaTessa on Sep 14, 2009.

     Because you can learn a lot about stuff that's really significant.

     It is a great way to expand your mind and be with likeminded people. Perfect way to spend a saturday night. ( but then again I am a science geek)
