The Dallas-Plano Atheists Meetup - California Pizza Kitchen (Willow Bend Mall)

Some friends tell me that this location is actually where they develop and test some of the new recipes before taking them elsewhere, so you're more likely to find variations here.

On the other hand, if you have some favorites they should have that as well. Pizza, pasta, seafood and more.

Or, as always, just join us to have a beverage and share some conversation.

    To Michael (where others can see, too): The events are provisionally kid-friendly. To wit, conversations range widely and there's no guarantee what the content might be ahead of time so that's an item to consider for parents that are careful of input to the kids. If you're generally of the mind to treat them as people with separation and guidance of input versus output the next consideration is that younger kids might require your attention distracting you from group interaction. That said, we've had a number of kids come (occasionally) previously that were anywhere from early teens on up and they were readily accepted and engaged in conversation to the benefit of all. So, in summary: it depends.

      Good job on the parenting Michael. I have never sat beside such well behaved kids in my entire life.

      Wow. Thanks for the compliment John. They are pretty good kids.

    Was nice meeting everyone last night. The conversation was interesting, insightful and intelligent (a collective 'well duh!' can be heard muttered from the peanut gallery).

    This meetup is in Plano, and the next week meetup is in Plano, and the past three have been in Plano. That's 5 in a row in Plano. Can we meet again in Dallas soon? Plano is hard for me to attend. I look forward to getting together again soon. :)

      I second the motion on Mockingbird Station. It's a great place to mix and mingle and you can literally walk off the train and walk to the eateries. Cafe Express at Mockingbird Station I remember is a great place (with an awesome black bean burger). Other restaurants I'd like to suggest would be Kalachanji's in East Dallas. It's a vegetarian-Indian restaurant located inside the Hare Krishna temple. The food is good, and the atmosphere superb. There is also the Cosmic Cafe in Oak Lawn. It's vegeterian-ish, and Indian-ish, and kinda neo-Bohemian funky. The atmosphere is great and they are used to groups, so it should be very accommodating. Of course, these are only suggestions. I'm not gonna cry if we don't eat there. :)

      Cosmic cafe is on our shit list for not spliting the bill. Just remember we don't do cheap as a trend. Our Tuesday night is a night out, a splurge. In most restaurants we are greeted because tues tend to be a slow night. But WE as a group don't do "family style" well. Although that's some thing we could work on.

    Looks like everybody is all wound up! I probably missed a good one by being out of town!

    Hmm, I see that Meetup has recently added a like button to discussion posts. Unfortunately, I guess they should have added a "dislike" button as well. Philip, I commend you for your usual maturity, graciousness, and restraint. This group is probably the most inclusive group I have ever had the pleasure of attending. However, no group of this size can be all things to all of its members. Philip, please keep up the great job!! I for one, really appreciate your unbiased efforts. (Note that this post is based on anecdotal evidence).
