More Skepchicky Meetup Goodness
Well, Atlanta Skeptics in the Pub was a huge success this weekend. We had a great turnout, in spite of not having the PZ – celebrity factor this time. It looks like our next meeting will require a larger room. We’ll also be having Tim Farley from Whats the Harm speaking so it should be a good time. Keep your eyes on the calendar for updates about that as well as details about Dragon*Con parties that will most certainly be forthcoming.
However, before that, we have a Skepchick Road Trip planned. Carr2d2 and I will be in Destin, Florida the weekend of August 23, with a crew of Skeptics in tow. Anyone up for a meetup Saturday or Sunday night? Post in the comments if you are and also if you have ideas for a location. I’m not at all familiar with the area so suggestions are welcome!
P.S. Also, Atlanta folks, I will be at the GUST (Gwinnett: Understanding Secular Truths) Monthly meeting this Wednesday – details on the calendar and also here. Hope to see you there!
What is this Destin trip all about, and why wasn’t I invited?
Come on down, Sam :) We’re just taking a pre-Dragon*Con road trip to the beach :)
Well, as that weekend is my birthday, I insist you get me some sexy skeptics at the beach pictures.
..and by insist, I mean grovel and beg.
Hey, i live in Destin! It’s awesome that you’re coming down. I’ll be sure to meet up- keep me posted!
Oooooh snap… me and adrebellious will most definitely be there. I am begging my boss to let me off work.
Oh yeah.. suggestions.. the beach obviously… Big Kahuna’s water park is open those days, but it’s like $40…. and.. and.. I love the beach.
And bar? McGuire’s Irish Pub.. a must.. good food.. it’s a pub.. I tried “pitching” this place to Rebecca, actually… Uh, and there’s a ton of other neato bars in the area…
Anyone want to go SCUBA? We have three or four tanks… three sets of gear.
Damn.. I’m not excited or anything. /end post frenzy.
Tina/adrebellious – great great great! Sounds like we have quorum for a skepchick meetup. Let’s plan on Saturday night? I need to get details on where we’re staying but McGuire’s sounds good, at least to start with.
My hubby and I won’t be SCUBA-ing this trip – we never made it to our certification dives (long story, rough schedules) but some of the folks coming down with us are SCUBA certified and may be interested. I’ll let you know.
Feel free to email me at masala (dot) skeptic (at) gmail (dot) com and we can coordinate.
It was great meeting you, your hubby, and all the other good folks at the Pub! My daughter and I had a blast, and we were disappointed with how fast the time got away. You’re probably right about needing a bigger space, but the Eagle’s Nest was a great place for a lot of reasons… literally a higher plane. ;) We look forward to the next one.
rystefn: my birthday is that weekend, too! what day is yours?
sounds like this is shaping up to be a great time!
The 22nd, you?
factsdontmatter: Had a great time with you guys too :)
If your daughter is having a hard time meeting Michael Shermer at Dragon*Con, come find either me or masala. She’s got connections to get her over there, and I’ve got the intertia to clear the path :)
the 24th…my last one til 30.
Awesome. August birthdays are the best! Or so it was written in prophesy…
My father and I enjoyed hanging with you all at the pub! I think ‘Jewgle’ was the highlight of my evening. ;) haha
Cleon will be proud to hear that, MetalOperaChick :) Pity the domain was already taken…
Had a lot of fun meeting everyone Saturday night. Stop searching and call your mother! ;)
I’m starting to get really excited about Dragon*Con!
….I never thought I’d be saying that. haha.
