May I have your thoughts, please?

Dear Friends:

First, thanks to all who chipped in to help defray the cost of this Meetup page. We’re good for another six months.

May I have your thoughts, please?

(NOTE: If you click REPLY, you’ll reach the entire Meetup group. Which is fine, if that’s your intent. To email me personally, use [address removed].)

Holding Drinking Skeptically at Fiddlers Elbow means that people under 21 cannot attend, not even when accompanied by an adult, unless they happen to know someone who can fix them up with a passable phony ID for a reasonable price. Not that I am advocating, recommending, or suggesting as much. I am not. Honest. That would be illegal. So don’t even think about it. Still, if you know someone …

The dilemma is that I hate excluding anyone; yet the group as it stands shudders at the idea of a venue change. So, some questions:

• How many of you who are under 21 would attend were it possible? As realistically as you can, please predict how often you might show up, ranging from regularly, to sometimes, to once and then forget it, to “it depends, because I haven’t met y’all yet and for all I know you’re a bunch of jerks.”

• Question for all ages — what are your thoughts on adding a mid-month, non-age-restricted gathering? Perhaps held in a restaurant and called something along the line of Eating Skeptically. Think there's enough demand? Would some of you attend two Skepticallys* a month? Not promising anything, mind you, but it’s a thought.

• What other skeptical / critical thinking groups are any of you aware of that you might you recommend to under-21s?

• Other thoughts / suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Steve Cuno

*I hereby declare “Skepticallys” a legitimate plural proper noun.
