From http://www.meetup.com/Greater-Lowell-Area-Skeptics-Society/events/160298052:

Join us this new year for our 2014 winter celebration with pot luck, science swap, pomanders, a tasting experiment, brief video clips, and enjoying time together. The science swap has been really fun in past years and it’s becoming a tradition. Be creative and have fun. It's not necessary to go shopping, but the item should be cool and interesting and not a discarded disinterest. Bring some kind of wrapped up science, reason, or skeptic themed gift worth around $15. Unique items make for a more competitive game. One swap gift per person. We will probably swap around 8:30pm. The past years' parties have been fun and we're looking forward to bringing our friends back together for another great time.

For those attending: Please list food, drinks, and/or snacks that you plan to bring in the comments of this event page. This will help us to have a good variety of munchies. Darrick and I will start the food list...

~ Love Lindsay & Darrick ~

      Yes, thanks to everybody who came and those who tried. Thank you for bringing your witty conversations, food dishes, and your friendly faces. It was a great pleasure for our groups to get together and meet new friends. Atheists, FTW!

      Daisy - craft beer and non-overlapping mysteria food item

      January 24, 2014

    • Daisy

      Mysteria food item sounds so much more intriguing than what we're actually bringing... which is peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (all one thing) and homemade California maki rolls... of course, craft beer.

    I'm gonna try and make it tomorrow but no promises, as the weather may be a factor. I saw a commercial once that suggested M&M's are necessary for occasions such as these so I'll get a bag or two.

  • Brian L.

    I'm thinking some cheese and crackers for an appetizer, then maybe a nice loaf of bread with dinner, and a bottle of wine

    Would anyone want to car pool from back bay Boston?

    I can bring some nonalcoholic drinks

    1 · January 14, 2014

    • Daisy

      OK. I'm the new person so I want to make sure I figure out what the faux pas are before I show up and commit any :D Still haven't figured out what to bring - probably an appetizer or dessert.

      January 15, 2014

    • Darrick F.

      Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are equally welcomed.

      1 · January 15, 2014

      Maybe some kinda of side dish? Anything you want...something to help complement the chicken & pot roast would be helpful.

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