What we're about
Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship among skeptics, humanists, secularists, and like-minded individuals. Drinking Skeptically provides an opportunity for skeptics, humanists, secularists, and others to talk, share ideas, and, yes, drink in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss science, history, philosophy, politics, and whatever is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.
We usually meet on the SECOND Wednesday of each month at MACKEY'S PUBLIC HOUSE, 1306 G Street NW, Washington DC (formerly the Laughing Man Tavern, half a block from Metro Center 13th Street exit and near the 30, 32, 36, 42, 52, 54, 63, 64, 80, D6, G8, P6, S2, S4, X2, and Circulator Yellow and Blue bus lines). We will be downstairs. Please look for the 'CFI' sign on the table or ask the host for the 'Drinking Skeptically - Center for Inquiry' group.
To learn more about CFI and CFI-DC see http://www.centerforinquiry.net (http://www.centerforinquiry.net/) and http://www.centerforinquiry.net/dc .
Please consider joining the main Center for Inquiry DC (CFI-DC) Meetup group. In addition to CFI-DC Drinking Skeptically events, the main CFI-DC Meetup group also lists information for Cafe Inquiry (last Tuesday of each month), Drinking Skeptically - Rockville (2d Thursday of each month), African Americans for Humanism, occasional lectures, and other events. Drinking Skeptically events are listed under both Meetup groups so if you join the main CFI-DC group then you don't need to join this one. But if you just want to drink with us then that's fine too.
CFI-DC encourages people with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing accommodations or have questions about physical access please post a comment and the event leader will email you.
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! Drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. Science and personal experience teach us about the effects of alcohol on the human body....The venue has no age restriction for the duration of our event.
