Intellectual Café is a gathering of well-read individuals who go the extra mile in understanding the deep meaning behind issues concerning some citizens or the society as a whole. There is no limit in the coverage of issues: from philosophy, to psychology, to sociology, to politics, to history and to the environmental issues. We've got it all covered. If there is an issue worth reading, contemplating, and debating about, the issue is relevant to our group. As a member, you are more than welcome to submit ideas to discuss, debate, or read about. All members can suggest meetups and can host those meetups in which they serve as the moderator and/or the subject matter expert. What's more fun than engaging in an intellectually stimulating conversation with some friends while sipping on a coffee/drink or having a nice meal? :-) Join us, if you haven't already!

Get involved: we'd love to have as many as possible members who are willing to host events. The only requirement is that you are interested in the subject and have read about it enough to get the conversation going! After hosting a successful event, you're more than welcome to become one of the group's Event Organizers, if you so wish. To get started, simply send a message to the group's organizer and explain what kind of event you'd like to host.

Meetup location: we usually meet in St. Denis street (between Ontario & De Maisonneuve), either in Second Cup/Starbucks (few people) or in Le Commensal (more people). The meetup host is, however, free to choose a different venue of his/her liking.

RSVPs: Every member is expected to respect their RSVP for each event and keep it up to date. Two instances of non-respect of the RSVP will lead to the member being removed from the group.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
