Next Meetup

The Spooky Physics of Quantum Mechanics
Doyle Temple of Norfolk State University will talk about The Spooky Physics of Quantum Mechanics. Dinner and drinks are great ways to relax at the end of a working day but still stimulate our minds. Join us as we explore the scientific aspects of some things we might not usually think about. Why don't you plan to spend the evening with us, and have scintillating conversation and even hearty debates with us? Everyone is welcome - bring your friends and co-workers along! Some tips to help get your food out of the kitchen faster: (1) Take a look at the Bangkok Garden ('s online menu and order your food as soon as you get there, or you can even call the restaurant [[masked]] and make your order over the phone. (2) Please try to arrive no later than 6:45 p.m. See you there!

What we're about

Tidewater Science & Reason (TS&R) was founded in 2001 in Norfolk, VA and moved to Meetup in 2014. The group consists of scientists and non-scientists alike, who are dedicated to promoting genuine science, the scientific method, rational thinking, and the use of genuine logic and reason. We meet at least once a month for dinner and drinks, frequently with a speaker on a scientific topic.

Some topics we've discussed in the past:

• The Higgs Boson

• Anthropogenic Global Warming

• Sunspots and Their Effect on the Earth's Climate

• Color Vision and Color Blindness

• Epidemiology

• Veterinary Care at the Zoo

As you can see, we have a wide variety of interests. If you're interested in the open discourse of real science and reason, and you live in the Tidewater, VA** area, you are welcome to participate! Please join us!

If you'd like to participate with us between dinner meetings, go to our Facebook page at

Also, for those who need more, More, MORE science, ODU now has a Science Pub series of lecturers and presentations that meets in various restaurants around the campus. Their web page is at ; As often as possible, we'll be cross-posting their events on our TS&R calendar, and we hope to cross-post to their calendar.

** Tidewater, also known as Hampton Roads, consists of the cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, and Williamsburg. Several counties in southeastern Virginia and the Peninsula also call themselves Tidewater. If you're in southeast Virginia, or even northeastern North Carolina, and feel you're within driving distance of our meetings, then you're our kind of people! We'd love for you to join.
