Holy Smokers are a weekly* informal gathering for refreshment, fellowship, and free-wheeling discussion, with free good beer, food, cigars, Scotch, fresh air, great music, etc. If you're interested, you're welcome. Consider yourself invited. We meet every Friday* at 6:30, at Holy Smokers Pub, 9715 Trevor Drive, i.e., under a cozy canopy on my patio by my pool.

Fun FAQs:

When should I arrive? - Come whenever you wish, and stay as long as you like. I'll be enjoying the evening from about 6:30 until at least 11:00, or until the last friend departs.

What should I bring? - We have free good beer, food, cigars, Scotch, fresh air, great music, etc. You needn't bring anything, but if you wish, feel free to bring a few beers, a bottle of wine or whiskey, a bag of chips, pico, salsa, cheese, sausage, or some other simple appetizer, some tobacco, etc.

How many attend? Expect a group of about 5 to 10 people. There are more than 200 folks who have attended from time to time. On particular nights, we've had as many as 24 (once) and as few as 1 (twice). In recent months, we've had from 4 to 14, with an average of 8.

What if it's cold, rainy, or hot & muggy? - We stay comfortable. The patio where we meet is covered under canopies, fairly well protected from wind & rain, and heated or cooled as necessary.

Do women attend? - Yes! We tend to draw mostly men, and we enjoy stuff typically associated with men-only parties, but women are welcome and do regularly attend.

Why do you call it a HOLY Smoker? - (1) I started these events primarily because of the model, inspiration, and encouragement that I received from various Presbyterian church friends in Dallas and Austin, and (2) I like the play on words.

What's the point? - Our goals are (1) to relax and enjoy a pleasant evening with good company, and (2) to encourage and edify each other via good, honest, hearty, engaging discussion.

Discussion? Of what? - Oh, I don't know. Nothing in particular. Whatever seems worthwhile, interesting, and fitting: big ideas, great books, philosophy, film, theology, music, ethics, life ...
