• Minnesota Skeptics - Drinking Skeptically
    We had a good run at our previous venues and appreciate all they've done but the deli has closed and the owner of that bar hasn't changed. I've chosen the Black Forest Inn for our meet-up. I've been going there regularly with a large group of 20-40 every month for years. They are super nice and very accommodating. Separate checks isn't an issue, flexible seating/group size is cool. The wait staff has uncanny memory of who is who if we move around from table to table. There is great beer and good food. I hope you all like this place. There are few places that don't require a fee or minimum food/drink order for a quiet place to hang out with a variable unknown sized group. PLEASE RSVP HERE SO I CAN UPDATE OUR RESERVATION AS THE NUMBERS CHANGE. 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. Please know that "Drinking Skeptically" 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. Free Parking in the lot by Glam Doll Donuts or street parking.

    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!)

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 (https://www.freehousempls.com/) (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.

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.
