CFI DC Drinking Skeptically

Please ask the host for 'Center for Inquiry - Drinking Skeptically' if you're unable to locate our party. We will be in the upstairs area. Elevator access is available.

Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals. Drinking Skeptically provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world's most famous skeptics are teetotalers, and we are happy to have you!

Remember that drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. If there's one thing science has taught us, it's the effects of alcohol on the human body.

To learn more about Drinking Skeptically see www.drinkingskeptically.org.

The venue has no age restriction for the duration of our event.

CFI-DC encourages people with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing accommodations or have questions about physical access you may email sdavis [at] centerforinquiry [dot] net in advance of the event.

      We had a huge turnout of more than 40 attendees. Next month, we're going to have to make a larger reservation.

    Humanist since College (met Margaret Knight 'Morals without Religion' back then) Believe we shld respectfully join suitable churches (UU, Episc) wh are really community centers & politely steer them away from loony "Public Policies' like Open Borders/Amnesty - I do a lot of that on Facebook pages using pseuds.

      Not really sure what this comment is about. Many people (including me) enjoy the whole part of atheism/secular humanism where you don't have to go to church. Plus, being an atheist in a church doesn't give you the kind of social capital required to change policy.

      Most of all though, using the term "respectfully"­ and then denigrating people's views on immigration as "loony" is pretty obnoxious. I can think of few things I would enjoy less than trying to convince the few major liberal or semi-liberal churches around the U.S. to be more conservative.

      P.S. If you Google "open borders amnesty" you just get a bunch of freaked out conservative sites claiming all sorts of crap. For instance, I was unaware that Rupert Murdoch had endorsed OPEN BORDERS AND TOTAL AMNESTY!!! seeing as he's publicly written about his desire for immigration reform because he thinks the current system is messed up. But I guess helping immigrants at all in our mostly-immigrant-descend­ed country is pretty scary!
