Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday night to Galway Arms!Â I had an awesome time and hope you all did too.Â The poor family that somehow got seated for dinner in our “private room” did not have such a good time, and I almost feel bad about it… but not really.Â I’m sure our souls were properly prayed for yesterday morning and we’ve all been forgiven.
Unfortunately I only have 2 pictures from the night.Â I started taking pictures and then got distracted by great conversation that I forgot to take more!
My husband, who is not a skeptic, was amazed at how our conversations always managed to came back around to some kind of crazy skeptical topic.Â He thought he was going to trick us into talking about Dave Chapelle for a while but it was a no-go when immediately Gerg pointed out that Expelled and those stupid detoxifying foot pads are advertised on Comedy Central.Â The night was a pretty amazing stream of skeptical consciousness.
After everyone headed out to take care of dogs/catch trains and buses/get home before turning into pumpkins, David joined my husband and I at another party where we tried to bring skepticism to my husband’s drunk co-workers.Â We stayed until the keg was dry, breaking the hearts of people who thought facilitated communication was the real deal.
I do have one complaint though… Ladies?Â Where were you?Â The only other female to make a showing was the lovely Buffy and though it was pretty kick ass to have probably the only two opera singing skeptical chicas in Chicago in the same room, it would have been even more kick ass to have some more “chick” for the Skepchick meet up!Â Some incentive for the single ladies – Buffy and I both brought dates… so if you’re into sexy smart boys (and what’s sexier and smarter than reading Skepchick?) we certainly have no shortage of those!
Upcoming meet-ups:Â We threw around some ideas for future meet ups and I know everyone really wants to find a way to see Expelled for free.Â I don’t know if there’s a way to do that legally right now, with it being out in the theaters and whatnot.Â Â I’m trying to find an angle but I think we’re all going to have to wait until it’s out on DVD.Â Perhaps then we could throw an Expelled Party.
If you guys have any suggestions, you can send them to me using the comments box on the left side of the page.
For those of you planning ahead, next meet-up is May 17.
