Minnesota Skeptics - Drinking Skeptically
We start at Be'Wiched Deli. The food is really good and they will customize a sandwich if you don't like what is on offer, but there is no pressure to get anything if you're not hungry - they've never required a purchase. Feel free to show up any time after 5pm, as there is no official start to the meet-up. Updated 09/09/2016: Be'Wiched Deli now normally closes at 6pm but they've graciously offered to stay open until 8pm for our meet-up. THANK YOU!) Mostly we sit around and chat, Skeptical topics predominate but conversations evolve naturally and pretty much any topic people find interesting can be on offer. Then again, Skepticism permeates just about everywhere... Occasionally we will have a speaker or presenter, and any ideas or suggestions are always welcome. Around 8pm we walk a couple blocks down N. Washington Ave to The Freehouse ( (701 N. Washington Ave). They have good in-house craft beers and good food. I make a reservation each month so please let us know on the invite if you plan to join us. So far, it hasn't been a big deal if we have more people show up. They are very accommodating. Please know that "Drinking Skepically" is a name of casual meet-ups used by many Skeptics groups across the country but does not mean that people will be expected to be drinking, or won't fit in if they don't. There are several members of our group who do not consume alcohol. Any and all persons are welcome with no pressure to partake. Many of us park in the ramp at 10th and Washington but it can cost $10-12 on Twins game nights. Street parking is often available. Read the meters carefully because rates change when there are events at Target Field. If you skip Be'wiched, The Freehouse has a lot.

What we're about

Public Group

Had enough of astrologers, psychics, homeopaths, ghost hunters, aliens, conspiracy theorists, creationists, and snake oil salesmen? Yearning to talk with someone rational for a while? Skeptics are interested in critical thinking, science, and the psychologies of belief and perception. Come meet with local skeptics for some refreshing and sane conversation.

Every 2nd Thursday, we are "Drinking Skeptically". Sometimes we have topics and sometimes we don't. Mostly the discussion is about current science events and other skeptical topics. Or... sign up for newbie night (, our book club (, or create your own event.
