CFI MI :: SKEPTICS IN THE PUB (GRAND RAPIDS) - Friday, February 16, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

NEW LOCATION Starting this Month – we’re moving to a much quieter venue at the Craft Beer Cellar! This is right across the street from the downtown market. Join fellow skeptics & secular individuals the 3rd Friday of each month for Skeptics in the Pub. This is a great opportunity to discuss current events, share ideas, meet new people, (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality. Don’t drink? Don’t let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world’s most famous skeptics are teetotalers, and we are happy to have you! Remember that drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. If there’s one thing science has taught us, it’s the effects of alcohol on the human body. To find our group, look for table signs with Center for Inquiry logo. Center for Inquiry Michigan values full participation for all attendees at all of our events, including participation from individuals with disabilities. Requests for reasonable accommodation may be made by contacting the event host at least three days prior to the event. Individuals are responsible for purchasing their own food and drinks. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks are available for purchase. Attendees are also welcome to bring in food from the Downtown Farmer’s Market (across the street) to enjoy at the event. Parking is available on the street (free after 6 p.m.) or in the City Lot to the South of the Market.

Contact: Jason Pittman,, (616) 634-24715.

BLACK PANTHER – MLK DREAMS ON SCREEN - Sunday, February 18, 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Each year the teens of the Greater Grand Rapids Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., partner with Celebration Cinema to host MLK Dreams on Screen Event to raise funds for local organizations. The event was created to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for the critical role he played in ending legal segregation and bringing light to gross injustices against African Americans through activism. This is one way to remember his incredible acts by supporting local organizations–serving the needs of the community was at the heart of Dr. King’s philosophy.

This year the teens are raising funds through the Jack and Jill Foundation to support:

YWCA West Central Michigan: Helen Claytor Girls Leadership Program
