Comic Leighann Lord at AMP in Bethesda, MD
Some of you might know Leighann as the Emcee for the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism. She's nerdy and one of us. Leighann Lord has been performing standup comedy since the age of 10. She has taken her jokes around the world, from Baghdad to Brooklyn, and as a self-proclaimed sci-fi fanatic, she has also co-hosted NatGeo’s Emmy-nominated late-night science and pop culture show “StarTalk” with Neil de Grasse Tyson. More than just a comedian, Lord is a published author and comedic commentator who has pulled pundit duty on VH1, Fox News, and MSNBC, giving her informed and funny take on politics, world news, and current events. Opening the show is Randolph Terrance, originally from San Antonio and now making his home in the DC area. He pairs a smooth delivery with sharp, funny material sure to make any group of people laugh. Tickets are available through the venue

What we're about

Public Group

CFI–DC Drinking Skeptically Baltimore is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals.

CFI–DC Drinking Skeptically Baltimore provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world's most famous skeptics are teetotallers, and we are happy to have you!

Remember that drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. If there's one thing science has taught us, it's the effects of alcohol on the human body.

Takes place the second Thursday of every month - 6:30pm-8:30pm at Slainte Irish Pub ( and Restaurant located at 1700 Thames Street in Fell's Point.
