Philosophy & Drinks @ Cypress Lounge

Come have some drinks and discuss what's on your mind! Whether you enjoy discussing Philosophy, Religion (or Skepticism), Politics, current events, or anything else that matters to you.

This is an open-topic group. Come discuss whatever you like, or let others bring their deep questions or ideas to the table for your input. Come share your views and learn from others in a fun and casual atmosphere. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring your input to the table.

We encourage as much diversity and controversy as possible. But above all things, the most important thing encouraged from everyone is tolerance. We truly learn the most from those we disagree with. Respectable debates can be very profound and thought-provoking. Throw some booze and appetizers into the mix, and it should be one great time. So let's pound a few and get into it!

    Awesome people and awesome discussions. The only problem was I could only participate in one conversation at a time. I'm only human. Looking forward to the next one.

    Anyone up for dinner first? I'll be the hood by 6pm. I even have a list of philosophy questions to discuss to get us warmed up for the 7pm main event.

    For anyone who has signed up last minute, the reservation is under my name (Rick Phillips), and we're supposed to be seated near the fireplace area, which should be a good area to easily hear each other.

      I've settled nicely into beer and wine faux snobbery, but my what my taste buds truly want is a Newcastle Brown.
