Boston Skeptics in the Pub Social Hour!

Posted on : 26-03-2009 | By : Rebecca | In : Event, Skeptics in the Pub


We already had a fantastic speaker this month, but I think it might be fun just to get together to drink and socialize. If enough people show up and are interested, I (Rebecca) will host another Skeptical Trivia Night! We did this twice last summer and it was a lot of fun, and an easy way to meet new people and possibly even win a prize or two.

See you there!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the First Boston Cream Pi Fight! It was so successful, we’ll do another on Pi Approximation Day, July 22. Stay tuned for details! Here’s video of the event for those who missed it. Thanks to Maggie for filming, editing, and doing everything except embedding it here, which took about 30 seconds:

Upcoming Event! Joss Whedon @ Harvard, April 10

Posted on : 03-03-2009 | By : Rebecca | In : Event


Tickets are now on sale for Harvard’s Humanist of the Year ceremony with Joss Whedon! They’re only $10 and sure to be well worth it – I attended last year’s event with Greg Graffin of Bad Religion, and it (literally) rocked.
