Description:

Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical thinkers, and other like-minded individuals. It provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

In honor of a new study saying that no alcohol is good for you, let’s discuss that study and science reporting in general. It’s very likely that the study’s conclusions are vastly different than the news reports about it. Other studies have said that moderate drinking can help prevent some conditions? So who’s wrong, or is this all just bad reporting by people who don’t understand the science? Is it Pons and Fleischman all over again? Join us for the discussion.

Don’t drink? Don’t let that stop you from joining us! Visiting a Drinking Skeptically location from out of town? Stop on by! Skeptics are a friendly bunch and there’s always room for one more.
