SpaceUp Atlanta - a Space Unconference Where You Create the Agenda
SpaceUp Atlanta is a space unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule and structure of the event. If you have an idea or question about space that you are dying to talk to people about or want to learn what other people are thinking about space in our community, this is the event for you.

Religion and the Atlanta Science Tavern - a Discussion
This meetup will be an opportunity for me to present my thinking on what will become our official position on the relationship between the Atlanta Science Tavern and people of faith (and non-faith). Be warned: this is going to be a policy talk not a religion versus science debate.

2012 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony Webcast-Watching Party
It's time again for that marvelous annual celebration of improbable research known as the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony. Please join us for this webcast-watching party at Manuel's as we stream this year's gala over the objections and guffaws of our usual crowd of science and humor enthusiasts.
The Open Source Bio Meetup is the new science kid in town; speaking of kids, The Fun Scientists, just launched by Science Tavern member Reginald Finley, offers a new kind of edutainment for growing and curious minds; Science Tavern supporter and speaker Stephen Fleming writes to share this Enterprise Innovation Institute newsletter article about the wildly successful Mars Landing Party we had there last month.
