These events are suspended due to COVID-19. Science and Reason with Skeptics in the Pub West Bay, Fiddlers Green, Millbrae sponsored by Bay Area Skeptics. (http://www.baskeptics.org/) If ye value critical thinking, and if ye scorn the film-flam man, and if ye drink, drink with us, your friends. If ye shun the brewer's art, at least help us lay waste to bangers & mash! Skeptics in the Pub is a monthly meeting for discussion of topics of science, reason, and skepticism. Sometimes there will be a planned talk sometimes it is a group of like minded people informally discussing the latest in science or pseudoscience. Fiddlers Green is a 10 minute stroll from the Millbrae BART & Caltrain station. 333 El Camino Real, Millbrae CA 94030
The Independent Investigation Group (http://www.iigwest.com/) was founded by Jim Underdown in Los Angeles about 10 years ago. We have formed an affiliate in the Bay area (http://iigsfba.org). The group administers a $100,000 challenge similar to Randi's million dollar challenge and backed by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. It meets regularly in the afternoon of the 4th Sunday of every month. There is a google group for internal discussion where details of time an place are announce.

The East Bay Skeptics meet for dinner and discussion on the fourth Sunday of every month. Sometimes there is a topic and someone makes a short presentation about it before an open discussion, and sometimes there is just open discussion of whatever is on people's mind. Ordering dinner starts at 6pm, discussion starts after eating is finished which is usually a little after 7pm. Note that there is a email list specifically for this group. To join go to https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/eb-skeptics Even if there are no RSVPs here there are typically between 10 and 20 "regulars" so don't hesitate to come just because you don't see RSVPs here. We look forward to seeing you ! please RSVP if you are new.
