Welcome! Darwin's Tavern is a discussion group for skeptics.  Our event organizers provide frequent social opportunities for people who like science and secular philosophy.  Join us for intelligent, casual conversation and your choice of adult beverages.  Our events include bar and restaurant meetups and group discussions in homes.  Together we find ways to live well in a world of constant change.

Are you new to skepticism? Darwin’s Tavern would like to extend a special invitation to people who are new to skepticism and people who are just curious about skepticism.  We are a friendly, welcoming group.  Check us out by attending one of our upcoming events.

About DT: On September 3rd of 2009 this meetup.com website was launched with the hope of one day having a welcoming, friendly, in-person community of skeptics known as “Darwin’s Tavern".  Over time that hope became a reality thanks to the work of our volunteer event organizers and the commitment of our regulars.  Unlike Darwinian evolution, our growth was not an un-guided process.  We relied then and continue to rely now on our event organizers to keep us on track.  In-depth discussion and debate are welcome.  Insults and rude comments are not. Check out our Facebook page, and we hope to see you at an event soon.  Cheers!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
