The May Barstool Philosophy Club Meetup!

Hey There Friends,

 

It's just about that time! Are you ready for some drinking and thinking? Me too! This month we are going to make one last visit to Park House Tavern on the corner of Colfax and Marion. Same Bat Time - 7pm. Next month will be our annual BAR CRAWL - be on the lookout for details on the annual event EVERYONE will be talking about!

I have had a few questions submitted this month, including:


- Should universal background checks to obtain a gun be the law? Will a parent have to get a background check on their child in order to give or sell them a gun? Will this be the end of gun shows?


- CNN recently ranked Denver as the fifth best “beer town” behind Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, and Boston. How should “Beer Towns” be ranked? By quality and diversity of available beer/breweries, numbers of breweries, history of brewing, or something else?


- Amanda Berry, Jodi Arias, Jon Benet, Elizabeth Smart… There is a disparity (perceived or otherwise) in that the media focuses on white girls in trouble, without similar coverage for minorities or boys. Is this perception real? How do we as a society overcome this?

 

- Do you think we would have creativity without inspiration? How about compassion?

 

Got something you want on the list? Send me a message with your question(s) and I will use them as an ice-breaker question at this months meetup. See you all on the 30th!

Cheers,

Dave

    Good discussion let night. For those who were part of the conversation about the middle east the book WHAT WENT WRONG by B. Lewis was the one I couldn't remember.

      Thanks, Marcia! It was fun talking with you about fundamentalism, colonialism, and all that other stuff. :-)

      Dan - it was really a great conversation. It morphed and got really interesting. I always think the best kinds of discussions are like fried calamari. The more you chew 'em the bigger they get!

    Fun group and interesting discussions. I now know that per Christopher - if I time travel - I should go to Chicago in the 1960's!

    Just joined and planned to attend - then saw the event is in like 15 minutes. LOL, next time! Plus I think half the people here are in at least one other meetup group I'm part of...

    I'm now tentative. I just bought a town house and have to get it prepped to move into. And donating blood as I type, so the beer would go quickly to my head. If I don't make it, drink a beer and question authority for me.

    I have another Meetup at 7:00, but I think it will only last 60-90 minutes, so I should be able to make it to this event, albeit a little late.

    May 29, 2013

  • Rich

    Be there close to 9. Hope there are some others who stay out late.
