I want to give a big thanks to everyone that came out for our End of the World Party last night. It was an amazing time! We went went way over how many people were expected to come and over filled the venue. Fortunately everyone was very nice and accommodating and we just simply squeezed ourselves in.
Also a special thanks to Station 885 letting us come in at the last minute and giving us the venue to use. We were much too big to fit into Ginger’s back room and were actually too big for the room we had at station 885. We had about 50 people show up. And the food was still excellent and the waitstaff worked extra hard for us.
Don’t forget to order your special EotW Party Tshirts from our MISkeptics store. They will be up for a limited time so get them while you can!
There were also several people that were first timers to MISkeptics and I would like to give a big WELCOME to them. Since we were mentioned in The Detroit News there has been a lot of buzz flowing around and that helped us to see many new faces and friends. So thanks to everyone that came out and we look forward to seeing you again!
There were several people that had asked for me to provide the images I used in the slideshow we used during the party so I have uploaded them to an album that you can access from our forums. All the images are there for you so have fun downloading!
It seems that there was one complaint last night about our revelry. One single gentleman, apparently very religious, was offended that Station 885 served us, not to mention let us in the building. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get much detail because the managers blew the matter off faster than we would have. I was hoping for picketers but we’ll just have to try harder next time!
Speaking of next time, our next Get Together will be Staurday, June 11th at 4:00 PM at our usual restaurant, Ginger. This is going to be a social gathering so there will be no speaker or presentation. But there will be lively discussions, great conversations and most importantly, laughter! If you’ve never been to one of our social Get Togethers you are missing out on a fun experience. Our last social Get Together had discussions ranging from current events to Shake Weight commercials. Yes, you know what we were talking about…
We have some more great news coming down the pipeline. The Drunken Skeptics are coming back to a podcast aggregator near you! After an extended hiatus the team is back and recording new episodes! Expect a brief episode to come out this week then we return with a brand new full episode in the coming weeks. We have some great segments, interviews and news for you so stay tuned for more information!
Also, The Michigan Skeptics Association is looking for contributors to our site and forums. If you are a skeptic, now matter how experienced, and think you have what it takes, send a sample article to admin(a)miskeptics.org.
That’s it for now. Check back often for Drunken Skeptics updates. We look forward to seeing you at the next Get Together. And until then, keep thinking!
