Drinking Skeptically

Salt City Skeptics is more of a social group than an educational or activist one. One evening each month, we gather for (optional) food and drink. There is no program or agenda; we simply visit. It’s an opportunity for rational thinkers to meet, get acquainted, catch up, and remember they’re not alone. 

If the person next to you moves to another seat, don’t take it personally. Topics are all over the board, and it’s not unusual for people to move around in order to take in as many conversations as possible.

We call the evening Drinking Skeptically, though that’s something  of a misnomer. The venue has a full menu with salads, entrees, et al, and offers soft drinks (even water!) besides beer and wine. Many people order nothing at all, and no one looks at them funny.

The evening may sound like utter confusion. Fair enough. Some love it, some don’t. Why not join us and see for yourself? Here are the details:

DAY AND TIME: Second Tuesday of the month, 7-ish p.m. till 9:30-ish.

WHERE: Fiddler’s Elbow, 1063 East 2100 South, Salt Lake City [masked]). Must be over 21 or over, ID required. They are strict about that.

FOOD AND DRINK: There’s a full menu, but ordering is optional. Enjoying one another’s company is mandatory.

PROGRAM: Don’t be ridiculous. We sit down, we open our mouths (usually all at once), and let chaos reign.

    Thank you to the few folks I caught near the end, for some great conversation.

    Also, at the risk of an un-welcome (?) plug (it's not meant to be, I'm just not sure I'm seeing everyone I chatted with in the RSVP list), here's the meetup I'm planning for listening to a RadioLab episode:

    Does this ever go later? I have a healing circle until 9:30pm, but could come by after?

      Ouch! (No pun on "healing circle" intended.) It varies, but quite often the group doesn't quite make it much past 9:00.

      A few of us lasted longer last night... (Myself, I only showed up around 8:30 or 9, and people were starting to finish up... but I managed to wrangle my local conversation to continue on. Yay. :) I'd be happy to stay late for future events as well, if/when I can make them.

    I want to go and meet new people and talk, but I have caught a cold and I don't like to spread my germs, so I will wait for the next one. >_<

      Kelsey, we all appreciate that. BTW, I have a cold too and will stay home tonight.

    Got an invite to the jazz game and can't make it tonight, hopefully next month!

      Chris, you'll be missed. But then, that will make seeing you next month all the better.

    I wanted to meet up with "Drinking Skeptically" on April 8th but will be out of state on a business trip. Next time hopefully.

      Thanks, Lyn. There’s always May!
