Please join us for the October Drinking Skeptically in the Crystal View Lounge at the Burbank Holiday Inn to hang out with Brian and Lisa Dunning.

Brian is the creator of Skeptoid podcast.
Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena is an award-winning weekly science podcast.
Since 2006, Skeptoid has been fighting the good fight against the overwhelming majority of noise in the media supporting useless alternative medicine systems, psychics preying upon the vulnerable, the erosion of science education in the classroom, xenophobia of advanced energy and food production methods, and generally anything that distracts attention and public funding from scientific advancement.

The Crystal View Lounge serves food and drinks at the bar and table service, has a wonderful view, great parking, is less noisy than other venues, and we can move the chairs and tables to accommodate easy conversation.

Please RSVP by ASAP so we can let the lounge know how many to expect.
Hope to see you there!

We meet the 2nd Friday of each month, but venue might change due to availability. Please check here again before setting out.

Free public parking after 6 pm in nearby lots across the street, and the Holiday Inn [according to reports] validates for 4 hours.

Food is served until 9:30 pm. Here is the event from June 2014: ( Visit this to see pics from the event and reports from people that went.

If you have never been to this venue, please do so. It is very different than the typical bar/pub location. Easier to talk and move about.

This is not as close to the Red Line as prior venues 1739 Public House or The Federal, but several members have offered to carpool from a Red Line station. If that is of interest to you, please post in the comments.

The Burbank Holiday Inn has two towers. The Lounge is on the 18th floor of the Tower closest to the 5 freeway (by First Street). Entrance is on Angeleno.

Please RSVP - there's room for all but we like to warn the bartender if the group will be particularly large!
