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, but other items are available to order as well. This 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.

    Food is good. Lots of variety. It's close to where we live so it is very easy for us to drive here. We're only minutes away. Plenty of parking. A bit of a tight squeeze but so far it seems like everyone has been able to fit. But I can see how it may become an issue if more people start coming. I am personally happy with the place.

      I usually go to Fiesta Mart, except for Bread at Krogers since Fiesta doesn't sell bread for some reason. Though Kroger's is out of whole grain half the time. The taste will more reflect the food itself, the brand, where its from,etc. Eg: My wife hates the large pickles and prefers the smaller ones. She always gets mad when I get the large ones and because they just aren't as crunchy. In the U.S.? You outside? I'm using TMobile. They charge 50.00 for first line and unlimited calling and unlimited data. 1st gb is 4G, after 1GB a month they slow you down. No overages. I was using a prepaid service before which was charging 0.10/mb. but switched to Tmobile recently.

      Got it. Thanks for the tips. Jeez, I've been with Verizon for sometime it won't be easy to part. I've got 1gb of data at $10 a month plus the base of $60 I think. Comes to $80 (don't like it, might look into T-Mobile but..) And your wife is right! ;-)

    It was my first Skeptical brunch. So I didn't know quite what to expect. I enjoyed it throughly. Yes, it was a bit tight. Consider it a means to improve group bonding :) Besides it's only for an hour or so. We should keep meeting there until space becomes a crisis.

    The food was good.

      Last time Marianna and I arrived around 11:30 and probably left around 3:30 or so. So it probably varies and depends on the direction of the conversations. Not always 1 hour. However, not everyone arrives and stays the same length. So even as it may run late, the crowd would most likely run a bit thin. But agree with you on staying until it becomes a crisis. And there are other areas in the place besides the one on the right as well.

      I’m not sure what meds you were taking for your arthritis and I’m not a rheumatologist so this is definitely outside my field of expertise. If you got Arthritis from Lyme disease then it was not RA or OA. You must have had Infectious Arthritis. If you were cured (and I sincerely hope you were), whatever it was, I assure you it was not acupuncture that cured you. It very well may have been some of those awful med.

      Acupuncture falls under the real of “Alternative Medicine” and as Tim Minchin said, Alternative Medicine has either been not proven to work or proven not to work. Do you know what they call Alternative Medicine that has been proven to work? Medicine. Glad to meet another New Yorker :)

    You guys please add your thoughts about the location for Suzanne to take into consideration. I liked the food and the space, but if the brunches continue to get more popular (which is awesome to see) we are going to run out of room. It was a bit of a tight squeeze today.
