Skeptics' Peña

What's a "peña?" In South America, the term refers to a gathering of like-minded people who get together to talk about some topic with the aid of finger food and wine and spirits (of the alcoholic variety). It's like a salon, but for regular folks.

We will gather to ponder the world, one topic at a time. We will examine debates without debating, exploring our convictions –or lack thereof– and the reasons we have to have them –or to not have them. We will do so in relaxed, friendly setting, keeping in mind what Bertrand Russell is said to have said about beliefs: "I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong." Or, if you prefer, what The Dude said about opinions: "Yeah? Well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Feel free to bring food and beverages of your liking.

The plan is to meet the third Wednesday of each month, with a new topic each month. This month's topic is yet to be decided and we'll be emailed out to the RSVPs ahead of the event.

Because of limited space at my place, we have to limit the attendance to 10, so please only RSVP if you plan to plan to make it, or cancel if you won't be able to in order to open a spot up for someone else.

    So sorry I can’t make it – had something come up last-minute regarding my son. Hope everyone has a great time, and hope to see you all at the next peña!
