• Drinking Skeptically (Stockton)
    Come celebrate Friday with us at Red Robin's restaurant and bar, near Sherwood Mall in Stockton. We'll have reservations for 6:30 PM based on the RSVPs we see here. This is an informal, social event great for newcomers and long-time members. Bring a friend and strike up a conversation about anything on your mind. Don't drink? That's okay. Red Robin has a wide selection of appetizers and entrees, even for the vegans and vegetarians in our group. PLEASE: If you won’t be coming, please cancel no later than the morning of this meetup. We need to give the restaurant an accurate headcount. (It's not fair to Red Robin for us to request a table for 20 and only have 12 arrive. And it makes us look bad.)

  • Colloquium: Dr. Alan Lenzi "When History and the Bible Collide"
    The Assyrian army invaded the Levant in the year 701 BCE. Archaeological and textual evidence indicates widespread destruction. But, Jerusalem was spared. Why? The Assyrian and Biblical evidence conflict on this matter. In fact, the Bible itself is internally contradictory about what precisely happened. In this talk, we'll look at the relevant texts and discuss how historians use the texts and explain the diverse viewpoints on this significant historical event. Dr. Alan Lenzi is professor and chair in the Department of Religious Studies. He specializes in the study of first millennium ancient Near Eastern religious traditions. 🎟 About the Free Event This is a free event, open to the public, at the Manteca Library. Those of all worldviews and faiths are welcome. Doors open at 7:15 PM and our featured talk starts shortly after. We expect most Colloquiums to last until about 8:15 PM followed by mingling and cleanup. Coffee, water, and pastries are provided. Parking is free. Suggested donations of $10 to support this and future colloquiums are appreciated. 🍜 Dinner Before For those interested in joining us for dinner, head to the GK Mongolian BBQ (1039 S Main St) prior to the event. People typically arrive around 6:00 and leave at 6:50 to start setting up at the Manteca Library.

  • Highway Cleanup and Brunch (Lodi)
    We're going to clean up CA-99 (northbound, between Kettleman and Turner)! We'll meet first at 8:00 AM at the Hollywood Family Café to split into smaller groups, review safety procedures, and equip supplies. Then we'll head to Highway 99 to clean up trash for about 2 hours, then head back to the restaurant for brunch. We do this on the first Saturday of February, April, June, August, October, and December. To participate, please RSVP so that we may follow-up with you and watch this safety video (http://adopt-a-highway.dot.ca.gov/CT_Adopt-a-Hiwy%20Vid_pt2.wmv). No tools are required! Caltrans has provided gloves, trash bags, grabbers, and helmets. You may want to bring a bucket (for trash, easier to use than bags) and a water bottle. You must wear jeans and close-toed shoes. RAIN OR SHINE. If it rains, we'll have brunch first and clean up after if the rain has cleared. Participants must be 16 or older. Sorry kiddos, safety first. Questions? Call David at[masked]

  • Open Mic Night (Woodbridge)
    On the first Wednesday evening each month, we'll join Mary for Open Mic Night at the Crossing. Open Mic Night is one of the most popular nights at The Crossing (http://www.woodbridgecrossing.net/). Hosted by Rob Stevenson and Cole Hinkle every Wednesday night, this family-friendly open mic night is open to all local musicians to come and showcase their talents in a supportive and encouraging environment. Mary says, "Most nights I'll perform a song or two, sometimes with a friend, but these musicians have been fantastic every week. I enjoy not only performing, but listening to them every week, and I thought, 'why not share it with you all?'" Bring a couple friends and support the venue that hosts local musicians every week.

    What could be better than starting a weekend with your like-minded atheist friends? Repeating the second Saturday of each month, SAAF members can meet up at Panera Bread in Trinity Parkway (by I-5 and Eight Mile). Order some coffee, a pastry, or have an early lunch. Or just come for the chat. Either way, you'll have a great time and meet some new people at this casual event. This is an entirely informal event. Show up when you can, leave when you want.
