SKEPTICAL HOLIDAY COMEDY AND LUNCHEON EVENT WITH IAN HARRIS
NOTE: Thompson’s Brewing Company is easy to miss because their signs are poor. Use Google and note that it is in the very center of the shopping strip to your LEFT of the Barber Academy as you face it.
Come see your old friends and make some new ones as we break bread together and enjoy one of LA’s most brash and irreverent comedians integrating skepticism and critical thinking into a smart and witty topical show. Language and concepts may be too strong for your kids.
We have the whole upstairs reserved at Thompson’s Brewing CO so we don’t offend anyone elsewhere at the place with Ian’s special brand of atheist humor. Your beer drink tab will be separate, but we’ll have enough to eat and nonalcoholic drinks that you’ll waddle out. You’ll cover $20 of your food tab and IEAAH/FAR will cover the rest. PLEASE BRING $20 CASH. We will welcome any donations you can make above this amount and keeping with our inclusive values, we’ll use it to sponsor those members who can’t afford the $20. They serve elevated pub food and you won’t be disappointed in the high quality.
Vegetarians and vegans should be sure to answer the question about that when it pops up when you RSVP.
Dress code is Holiday smart casual (but whatever).
