Not every new calendar entry gets its own shout-out here on Skepchick, but those that are run by Skepchicks or their crushes certainly do. To that end, let me point out that my favorite cheeky skeptical monkey Sid Rodrigues of Skeptics in the Pub has organized a fantastic event in London this April 19: An Evening with James Randi and Friends. The “Friends” include perennial favorites Richard Wiseman, Simon Singh, Chris French, Ben Goldacre, and Susan Blackmore. That’s an amazingly awesome line-up, and if you’re nearby you can check out the action for just Â£11, or Â£5.50 if you’re a student or OAP (whatever the hell that is, crazy Brits).
