Skeptics In The Pub (Grand Rapids)

Friday, January 23, 2015, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
SpeakEZ Lounge, 600 Monroe Ave NW, 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.
