Phoenix Skeptics in the Pub - OHSO Brewery

Skeptics -

Join fellow lovers of science and reason for some drinks, food, and conversation at our usual east-Phoenix spot: OHSO Brewery. There's no lecture or formal discussion; this is strictly a social meetup. The idea is to hang out with other skeptics and talk about the many areas of interest to the our community: paranormal claims (ghosts, psychics), conspiracy theories (9/11 "Truth", HAARP), denialism (climate, evolution), pseudoscience (homeopathy, acupuncture), marketing (balance bands, "super fruit" juice)...the list of BS is endless.

The world is full of superstition, bad arguments, and unquestioned assumptions. Consider our meetup an oasis in the desert. See you at the pub!

-------

A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion. - Dr. Steven Novella

    This will be my first event but I've been wanting to join you for a long time. I'll be there early, about 6:20. At the bar.

    I've never made this because I play racquetball Wednesday evenings...but I do usually finish up before 10...so I plan to stop by afterward.... How might one recognize this crue?

      Patrick - Ask for the skeptics at the host desk in front. There are usually people hanging out late. I hope to see you there!

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.
