Brunching Skeptically -- NEW(Permanent) Location

Brunching Skeptically is our monthly gathering where we dissect all the month's interesting news and devour some great food.

NEW LOCATION: We've tried a couple of different spots lately, but I think this one may be permanent. Skeeter's at Bissonnet and Weslayan is a casual place with a variety of really good food -- burgers, Tex Mex, salads, entrees, and a BRUNCH BUFFET. Omelets, eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, gravy, waffles, pancakes, sweet rolls, potatoes, beans (tortillas for tacos), and a huge table of fresh fruit.

The buffet goes from 9 until noon, then the regular menu is available (which also includes breakfast items). Skeeter's is ideal in that they have a private space up front that can hold our group, you go order & pay at the counter and they bring your food to you (so no waiters and separate checks). AND (Jason) they have about a dozen TVs all around the place so you can keep track of any sports games that might interfere with our gathering. ;) 

 It's centrally located as well, easily accessible from 59 inside the Loop. 

So come join us, and bring your rants, opinions and astute comments on the news of the day. We generally have a dozen or more 'brunchers', so please do RSVP and let us know you're coming.

    I'll be out of pocket for a few weeks, but will probably be available for the 16 November gastronomic event.

    Thanks to all who came (19 or 23 -- I lost count)! Good feedback on Skeeter's, and they were great about accommodating us, so looks like we'll be staying there awhile. Alas, I'll be out of town for the November 16th brunch, but I'm sure one of the regulars can act as coordinator. December 21st would be just before Christmas. I'll probably be here, so I'll put out the notice early December and we'll see who'd like to come... Or call it off until January.

    Can't make it this month. A friend of mine did me a huge-ass favor this week, and I am treating him to lunch as thanks. Catch you all next week!

    In honor of the upcoming Halloween festivities, let's talk about things that scare you -- global warming, terrorism, super bugs/ebola/epidemics, hackers -- and of course, the dark, spiders, and stupid people voting. Bring your worst fears and we'll do what we can to talk you out of them. ;)

    Y'all
    You may be familiar with the NPR program “Moth Story”: members of the audience get up, talk for 5 minutes about a pre-set topic. This Tuesday (14 Oct, at 7:30 p.m.) they’ll be in Houston (KUHF, 88.7 FM); the topic will be HUNGER. See http://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/the-moth-storyslams-in-houston/
    I plan to go; hope to get picked to speak. Why? Many of you, especially my fellow “Hungry Heathens”, know about my “RESTAURANT MINI-SELF-TAX” project: save up one dollar every time I elect to eat in a restaurant, and annually write a check to the Houston Food Bank (which is secular) for the accumulated funds. I have tried to spread the word mostly among Humanists, Freethinkers, Atheists, Skeptics, etc. – hoping others among you will join me so once a year we can pool our money for a big, ostentatious hand-over to show the world that Nonbelievers DO care, that meaningful charity is not the exclusive province of churches, synagogues, etc.
    Please share this with others.

    Marc -- It used to be at 12:30, which was barbaric. I'm dragging it toward civility. ;)

      I think you need to change the time from PM to AM.

    I refute that statement and welcome you to come to the event to debate it :)
