Drinking Skeptically - Rockville Edition
NOTE: We're a group of people who are atheist, agnostic, secularist, secular humanists, etc., who are just regular people who don't believe in any gods. Proselytizers are not welcome and we don't offer a debate-type atmosphere. Just a social gathering of non-relegious types of folks. This event typically occurs every other Thursday of the month.

The address for World of Beers is misleading, it is located across the street from Ben & Jerry's and the Regal Cinemas Rockville Center 13. Please ask the host for the 'Drinking Skeptics' meetup if you're unable to locate our party. Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals. Drinking Skeptically 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 teetotalers, 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. The area set aside be the establishment for our group is wheelchair accessible. The venue has no age restriction for the duration of our event. CFI-DC encourages people with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing accommodations or have questions about physical access you may email jfkennedy65 [at] gmail [dot] com in advance of the event.

What we're about

Public Group

The Center for Inquiry–DC (CFI–DC) offers an opportunity to put your principles into practice by joining other rationalists to work for positive change in society. In addition, the D.C. Center sponsors social events for freethinkers as well as intellectual programming.

CFI provides an ethical alternative to religious and paranormal worldviews. In this time of rising religiosity, anti-intellectualism and political turmoil on ethical issues, it is critical that rationalists and freethinkers join together to promote and defend science, reason, and secular values.

CFI–DC is the Washington, D.C. region's source for information and social activities serving atheists, agnostics, secular humanists, skeptics, and freethinkers of all ages and backgrounds. We hope you can identify with our goals and find a home at our Center!
