Toronto Skeptics in the Pub Event: Check back later to see what is happening this month. We may have a speaker, or maybe we will just have a free and open discussion. In any case we will have a nice, enjoyable time with a friendly group of skeptically minded people. We'll be at our usual venue, the Fox and Fiddle, just across from Wellesley Subway station. To find us, tell the wait staff you are looking for the Skeptics. We should be on the 3rd Floor. The Association for Science and Reason (formerly Skeptics Canada) ( http://www.scienceandreason.ca ) has opened its regular monthly dinner to interested Meetup members, and it has been a lot of fun. Heated discussion, hot food, good company--a great way to spend the evening without losing I.Q. points. As usual, don't be put off by the small number of people signing up through Meetup. Most of the regulars do not respond, they just show up. We typically have between 30 and 50 attendees."

It will focus on plants in the area and some of the historical background. We will stop frequently to look at plants. The distance travelled will depend on what we see. Bring snacks, water and a pen.
