So I’m officially the contact person for Drinking Skeptically Pittsburgh. Since this location (http://thelibrary-pgh.com/) was recommended to me, I’m going to stick with that. I think the south side is a good drinking hub anyway, and it’s close Oakland.
Things that were recommended to me:
-That I stick with a monthly day and time to make it easier for people to remember
-Creating some kind of online group to remind people of events: I will start a Facebook group.
-Having it at a regular location (I have a call into that bar as we speak)
-Having some kind of thing that makes me stand out at the location; they will send me DS buttons, I could also have balloons or something like that.
-That I network with my local CFI chapter (hey look at that - I’m one step ahead!)
So I am thinking I should schedule it for either
4th Thursdays during happy hour
the 4th Fridays around 7:30pm
I’m only picking the 4th week because then we can start this month and it seems to not conflict with existing CFI events, if we wanted to collaborate (or at least advertise DS events to CFI members, since these are like-minded organizations). I prefer the Friday, but I’m flexible.
Since Eliza, you showed interest, I wanted you to get a say in the time/day! Also feel free to suggest something else.
I’d like to get back to the guy at DS tonight or tomorrow before I leave for the weekend, so he can post it on the website ASAP.
