Telephone Bar and Grill
Our next event, Philosophy Roulette, is now open. Please review the updated RSVP policy at the bottom of this announcement before responding. Philosophy Roulette is one of our more popular meeting formats. Come to the event with *any* philosophical topic or question. Within the discussion groups, members are randomly selected and topics are actively debated for 20-30 minutes. A Roulette event is quite energetic and over the course of the evening many interesting topics usually come up. And if a topic happens to be uninteresting to you, no big deal, since very soon another topic will be selected. Sometimes the topics are quite creative! This event is at Telephone Bar (in East Village). This venue has a special nostalgia - it was the location this summer of our very first meeting. This will be our third time at Telephone Bar. This event was originally planned for DT/UT, but the noise level was judged to be unmanageable and the terms for reserving the back area were not suitable. Telephone Bar remains one of my favorite venues. The event begins at 7PM with a meet-and-greet where you will be introduced to other members. Discussions begin at 7:30 and will run until around 9:30. After the discussions, members are encouraged to stay and socialize. New RSVP Policy: We are adjusting our RSVP policy since we are experiencing a 20% no-show rate for our full events, which deprives others of a chance to attend. We now simply require that you update your RSVP by noon on the day of the event if you determine that you cannot attend. If someone is a no-show twice, then that is grounds for automatic removal 3 days after the second occurrence unless arrangements are worked out with the organizer. To give everyone who wants to come to a full event the best opportunity to attend, this adjusted policy is needed. In general, if an event is full, then spots open up on the day of the event. But please update an RSVP to 'no' as soon as you know for sure you cannot attend. Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
