What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We are very excited to announce that we will be returning to our favorite weekly meeting spot at J Gilligan's in Arlington! After more than a year of social distancing, come hang out with fellow atheists in North Texas.
If you have never joined us before, this is a perfect time to come get to know your friendly local atheist activists. When you arrive at J Gilligan's, you will find us at the restaurant side in the back corner. Feel free to ask wait staff to point you in the right direction. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday!
Metroplex Atheists requests that only individuals who have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccination attend the Wednesday Social.
Due to pending concerns over COVID, we are bringing back our Zoom social in addition to our weekly J. Gilligan's meetings to provide options for those checking out our group.
Please note: If you have previously RSVP'd in the past, the Zoom link has been updated, so you will need to RSVP again.
Please join us. We need as many marchers as possible to show the DFW area there are a lot of us atheists, freethinkers and humanists here. Water provided.
The staging area of the parade is at the corner of Cooper St. between Doug Russell Road and W. Mitchell St. in Arlington. To get to the staging area you have to come up Cooper St. from the south (Park Row) then turn right on Doug Russell Road. You can access this area until 8:30 AM. We recommend you arrive between 7-8AM. Please look at the Parade Parking Map at: parade_route_map_2022.pdf (arlington4th.org) for details.
The Staging area opens at 6:30 AM and closes (to vehicles) at 7:30. Our parade position is 109. The Parade starts at 9:00 AM so we probably won't leave the staging area before 10:00AM.
BIG!!! Wednesday is here at last.
From now on we will celebrate the first Wednesday of every month as BIG!!! Wednesday by asking that more members come to Gilligan's than on regular Wednesdays and that they bring a guest with them.
This will be to celebrate our over 20 years coming to Gilligan's every Wednesday.
We want to demonstrate the large size of our group and that we are dedicated to show our commitment to socialize with other atheists.
So, Please help us out by being a part of our BIG!!! Wednesday celebrations on the first Wednesday of each month.
