Sunday, May 18, 2014, 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Mayan Buzz Cafe, 208 Grandville Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI, View Map

Description

Join fellow CFI Friends to watch the this week's episode of the new COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey! This event will take place EVERY SUNDAY for the duration of the series.

Hosted by renowned astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson, COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.

COSMOS will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the legendary original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

Show begins promptly at 9pm on FOX TV. For exciting previews and more information about the show, visit http://www.cosmosontv.com/

Skeptics In The Pub (Grand Rapids)

Friday, May 23, 2014, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Brewery Vivant, 925 Cherry Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI, View Map

Description

This is a great opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world's most famous skeptics are teetotalers, and we are happy to have you!

Remember that drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. If there's one thing science has taught us, it's the effects of alcohol on the human body.

Cost: Individuals are responsible for purchasing their own food/beverages.
