Happy new year, Cafenistas!
We have now been at Peeve’s Public House for two years! After years of wandering around town from venue to venue, it has been nice to have a stable long-term home for our Café with such a welcoming and generous host as Craig Scharton. It is hard to think of another such place in town where the establishment’s vision of providing a genuine public house dovetails so nicely with our own goal of bringing science to the public discourse.
While it is nice to continue that spatial stability in the new year, we’re afraid we have to do a temporal shift in our scheduling. Recently, owing to the realities of conducting business on the Fulton Mall, Mr. Scharton has had to rethink his business hours. The Pub will therefore move to a new schedule starting January 1st, remaining closed on Mondays and Tuesdays instead of being open all seven days of the week. He generously offered to open up the pub on the First Mondays just for us, but that seems like an unfair burden to place on such a supportive business. Therefore it makes more sense for us to move our Café meetings to another day.
Given that no day of the week is ideal in terms of being able to accommodate everyone, it seems like we have two potential choices to work with the new Peeve’s schedule:
- Wednesday (first of the month) evening at 7PM.
- Sunday evening at 5PM or 6 PM.
For January 2016, we’ve scheduled the event on Wednesday, the 6th, at 7 PM. Let us know in the comments if you think this works or not, or if you prefer Sunday evenings for future events. There will also be a poll on our Facebook and twitter feeds to see if there is a strong preference either way.
We thank you for your continued participation in the cafe, and hope to see you again every month in 2016.
