What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Bankers Hill Club House (also known as San Diego Indoors Sports Club)
This will be the 2nd hybrid assembly, after (hopefully!) learning from September's Assembly. Please feel free to attend in person, or on Zoom.
Havana Syndrome: Diplomats' Mystery Illness
In 2017, news outlets started reporting about U.S. diplomats in Havana, Cuba hearing strange noises and experiencing physical symptoms usually associated with brain injury, including hearing loss, memory loss, headaches, and nausea. Subsequent reports of similar problems emerged from diplomats in China and Germany, among other places. Some media sources labeled these as "sonic attacks" with "mass hysteria" an alternate hypothesis. However, Dr. Beatrice A. Golomb, Professor of Medicine at UCSD School of Medicine -- whose work is responsible for the current leading hypothesis -- will share why the evidence points to not a sonic attack, but a different source, and what the ramifications are to U.S. civilians.
There will be humans. There will be singing. There will be snacks, and caffeine, and a poem, and there will be MASKS. Yep, masks are required for this indoor event, even if you are vaccinated. 🙂 All the caveats apply here: we will look to county authorities for changes in COVID practices, and will adjust accordingly if needed.
Child care will be provided! We are back at the Bankers Hill Club, which features an accessible facility, including accessible parking spots and bathrooms.
Here's the Zoom link for anyone who wants to attend online:
Sunday Assembly San Diego is an inclusive non-religious community that meets monthly to hear inspirational talks, connect for service projects, sing songs and generally celebrate life. Assemblies are free to attend, and everyone is welcome.
Stay after the assembly for coffee, snacks and to hang out with other assemblers.
Please join us for lunch after the Assembly, even if you can't make it to the Assembly itself. The time the Assembly finishes will vary, but people will start to head over to Barrio Star between 12:30 and 2, and usually end by 3. See you there!
Let's hang out and let the conversation go where it goes. What are you binge watching or reading? How's your family doing? Having weird dreams? Whether it's silly or serious, community and connection is just what the doctor ordered. Bring your best dad joke to start off.

Let's eat! Join us for dinner at Golden Chopsticks in National City. We have a reservation, but the space there is pretty large and they should be able to fit more. There are vegan and vegetarian options on the menu, and if you do eat meat, the salted pepper chicken wings are to die for.
There is plenty of parking in the surrounding shopping center if not in front of the restaurant (usually there are spots in front of the Joann Fabrics). This is near the Plaza Blvd & Palm Ave bus stop #50066, and the 962 and 963 Bus Routes stop there.
If you'd like to join us but would need a ride, please leave a comment below and hopefully we can find you a lift with another attendee.
