Talk about the New Yorker over cocktails.

All, please join us for our next New Yorker Magazine Meet Up. Conversations are not limited to the New Yorker Magazine at all, but rather it is a gathering of like-minded people who enjoy the New Yorker Magazine to enjoy cocktails and socialize. We will talk about life, world events and anything else worthy of conversation over happy hour drinks.

We try to pick a few articles each month for people to read. Here are this month's articles: 

A Very Rare Book
The mystery surrounding a copy of Galileo’s pivotal treatise.

Has the self-driving car at last arrived?http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/11/25/131125fa_fact_bilger

ROCKET MAN
How an unemployed blogger confirmed that Syria had used chemical weapons.

By popular demand, here is a FAQ for this Meet Up.

Q: Is reading of the articles mandatory. 

A: No, No, and No. Please come even if you haven't. 

Q: I only look at the cartoons and never really read the articles. May I still attend?

A: Yes.

Q: I used to read the New Yorker but I haven't recently. May I still attend?

A: Yes. We are about like-minded people getting together and socializing. There will be no test on recent issues.

      Susan, we've had several heated discussions about the Caption Contest. Strong opinions abound. :) We'll discuss again on Monday.

    I miss the group, but I now generally have meetings a couple of times a month on Mondays. I loved the article about the self-driving car; that would be fun to discuss.
