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.

It’s the one year anniversary of Drinking Skeptically (this version anyway). From the blizzard which prevented most people from coming to the first meeting. It’s been a fun year with lots of pop-ins around a core group: an anti-vaxxer, the Catholics on Friday, our skeptic friends in Rochester, the lady who yelled at me over my satirical war on Christmas flier, my inability to remember to post the pics of the meetings, and our inability to stay on subject. Speaking of which, let’s talk about the upcoming year: can we as a society improve or are we doomed to continuing backslide of the fallacious reasoning, pseudoscience, and conspiracy theories that dominated 2018? Join us for a lively 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.
