Skeptics in the "Lab" -Taste Test

  • December 1, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • Portland Autonomous Zone

Taste Test Party! 
We're fudging on the date a little bit, due to some time constraints. So for November, Skeptics in the Pub will be on Sunday, December 1st, and we're doing a DIY taste testing.
- Can you tell the difference between a good bottle of wine and some 2 buck chuck? How about a pinot noir and a pinot gris?
Can you tell which soda's have HFCS and which ones have sugar?
There will be a couple snacks as well, I'm ordering some "miracle berries" -the ones that alter sweet/bitter flavors.
-And last, but certainly not least, I'll be hosting my own "Tasters Choice" between some of America's cheapest, finest lagers. =)

Location is going to be unique, we're using a workspace in southeast Portland. It's basically a renovated house and garage-space- and we'll have free reign of the place, more or less. Please join the planning group if you'd like to help volunteer or provide stuff for the event!

    Big thanks to everyone that showed up tonight- and a SUPER big thanks to everyone that brought booze, food, and other surprise goodies. There were some generous donations that really helped out- (there were some costs involved with tonight) (also, I just lost my wallet yesterday along with a sad amount of money in it *sad face*) -Also, everyone that helped do SCIENCE by labeling cups, mixing drinks and doing popcorn alchemy. =)

    Always great seeing everyone!

    I hope a tardy attendance is still welcome. I have another engagement which may delay me from being there until maybe 6...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
