Beginning in August 2013, we began offering a casual social gathering in both St. Paul and Minneapolis each month. A time for fellow humanists and other freethinkers to get better acquainted and enjoy the company of like-minded folks.
Space at these events is limited. The protocol is to sign up for only one of the Happy Hours each month at the location or on the date that best suits your schedule. By so doing, more people will have the opportunity to attend at least one Happy Hour each month. If space is available 24 hours ahead of time, feel free to sign up a second time at the other venue if you would like to attend.
Always remember to keep your RSVPs current and accurate on the Humanist Meet-up site. If your plans change and you cannot attend an event you have signed up for, please be considerate and take your name off the list. Often times people are on the waiting list and are hoping to be able to come.
Due to popular demand, a second social gathering is being scheduled for this month. We're back at Old Chicago on their patio, weather permitting, to enjoy the company of fellow humanists and freethinkers.
Enjoy an evening out with fellow humanists and an assortment of freethinkers at our monthly happy hour. Most of us hang out for much more than an hour to eat, drink and socialize with folks who share a naturalist worldview. We live to make the most of this life and do the good we can while we are able.
Come meet new people or connect with familiar friends. Green Mill Happy Hour specials end at 6pm, but join us whenever you are able. Some of us linger until well past 8pm. If you are coming past 7pm, no need to add your name to the list until August 2nd. If the queue is full, come anyway; usually there is some turnover by 7pm and space is available.
You can find a small parking lot for patrons across the street on Grand Ave. next to the gas station, or use street parking on Grand. Or, take the bus, bike or walk. Keep your RSVP's accurate and up-to-date since space is limited.
If you are in town over the holiday week-end, join us for our monthly happy hour. Here's an opportunity to get better acquainted with fellow humanists and freethinkers with no other agenda than to socialize. Whether discussing your vacation adventures, latest hobby, current events or philosophy, the conversation is sure to be stimulating.
Happy Hour specials at Old Chicago are available until 6pm only. Parking is available in a small side lot, but the restaurant is right on several bus lines, and at this time of year, biking may be the most pleasurable transit choice.
As always, keep your RSVPs accurate and up-to-date due to limited space. Thanks.
We're a friendly, thoughtful bunch who meet once a month to socialize without any agenda. Fitting of course for a Friday evening. Sometimes we discuss philosophy or current events; or, we just get better acquainted and share personal interests. Got some gardening tips or a critique of a recent movie? Let's hear about them.
Green Mill has happy hour specials until 6pm for both food and drink. Join us for a relaxing evening with like-minded folks. Street parking is available on Grand Ave. or in the small lot across the street next to the gas station.
No baseball tonight, so it should be sane to venture out to this popular downtown pizza establishment for our monthly happy hour. They have an excellent selection of craft beers on tap and their menu includes gluten free and vegan options. Join us for our monthly social event where serious conversation is optional but never unwelcome.
Drink specials last only until 6:00pm, so get there promptly if you care. Keep your RSVPS accurate, as usual, due to limited space.
Parking tips: take the light rail or bus if you can. Street meters should be available at $1/hour. Don't park in the surface lot across the street; it's very pricey. Ramp C is nearby and charges $5/evening on non-event nights.
Hey, it's Spring! If you've been hibernating too long, come on out and join us for another social gathering at the Green Mill Pizzeria in St. Paul. The food is good, the company even better and the conversation stimulating.
They've put us in the back dining room again, but some folks like it better there. Come join us for another pleasant evening out with fellow humanists and freethinkers. FYI--Green Mill's happy hour specials last until 6pm.
Space is limited, so as usual, keep your RSVP's accurate and up-to-date. Thanks!
Can you believe it? March is almost here! Time once again for our totally socially-focused monthly get together. We're trying another new place in Minneapolis; in "north-east" not too far across the river. This Indian restaurant has a private room just for us with delicious food and small plates--even for the health-conscious or vegan-minded. The bar selections may be more limited--with no happy hour discounts--but the beverage menu also offers some unique non-alcoholic refreshments that are sure to please.
Join us then if you can for an intimate gathering of fellow humanists for good conversation and conviviality. Space is limited for 16 people only. Keep your RSVPs accurate and up-to-date to allow space for those who definitely can commit to this event.
The restaurant is on the corner of 1st Avenue and 4th St. NE and has a small parking lot with more spaces becoming available after 6pm. Also, street parking is free after 6pm--and costs only a quarter for the half-hour before. Or, take the bus, bike or walk, :-)
Join us for another casual gathering for food, drink and conversation with fellow humanists and naturalists. Our monthly Happy Hours provide a great opportunity to meet other like-minded folks in an informal setting to relax at the end of the week. Meet old friends; make new ones.
FYI--Green Mill Happy Hour specials end at 6pm. And, as always, keep your RSVPs accurate and up-to-date since we have limited space. Thanks.
We are checking out another new venue as we toast in the New Year with fellow humanists and freethinkers. In the heart of Uptown, Primebar hosts their Happy Hour until 7pm--so come enjoy some food and drink at your leisure. While they don't cater to specialty diets, their menu is varied enough to accommodate vegan and gluton-free palates.
It's gonna be dark, and probably cold. You could go home after work and hibernate, OR you could while away a couple of hours with friends over food and drink at the Green Mill-- and no doubt some good conversation. It's the best way to get through the darkest time of year. Hope to see you out and about.
Unwind and connect at the end of the week with friends and fellow Humanists. We'll be checking out a new venue this month, a relatively new bar and eatery, the Mill Valley Kitchen. It boasts a northern-Californian-inspired cuisine based on healthy, light and locally sourced ingredients. Vegan and gluton-free options are available. Take a look at their website for details-- http://millvalleykitchen.com/
Their Happy Hour specials end at 6pm, so arrive on time if you are able. And space is limited so PLEASE keep your RSVPs accurate and up-to-date if your plans change. Mill Valley Kitchen is on the western edge of Minneapolis where Excelsior Blvd. and France Ave. meet. Parking and main entrance are in the back of this large residential complex and retail facility.
We're back at our regular haunt in St. Paul. With our usual spot behind the bar, we have our own space for managable noise control and opportunity for good conversation. And just a reminder, their happy hour specials only last until 6pm.
Has the end of summer got you down? Or is the start of fall lifting your spirits? Whatever your mood, join fellow humanists and freethinkers at this neighborhood eatery on the edge of Uptown to socialize, nosh and toast the cycle of the seasons.
Gigi’s Café has happy hour specials until 6pm with a nice selection of small plates to pair with a beverage. The chefs are transitioning to locally farmed and sustainably grown ingredients as well as offering gluten free, vegan and vegetarian menu options. The café has a limited liquor license in that they are only allowed to serve alcohol with food, so come hungry or enjoy some of their other tasty non-alcoholic beverages.
Another Friday. Another hot summer evening? Cool off and meet-up with fellow humanists at this great St. Paul bar and eatery. The Green MIll boasts that nearly all of their dishes are "made from scratch everyday with the freshest ingredients available – many that are provided from local suppliers." We've got our own space behind the bar allowing for good conversation and comradery.
It's Friday night and time to relax! Join fellow humanists and freethinkers for some lively conversation and pleasant comradery at the Common Roots Cafe.
We are happy to support this local eatery that thinks ethically about food. From their website: "Common Roots provides high-quality and sustainable fare that's accessible to all. Our kitchen uses local and organic ingredients to create a monthly-changing menu of innovative food made from scratch every day."
They've got some good beer, too, and are prepared to accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
Join fellow humanists and freethinkers at our monthly Happy Hour. It's a great opportunity to meet interesting people across all walks of life and get better acquainted. Find common ground or exchange diverse ideas.
We alternate between Minneapolis and St. Paul venues each month. May is for Minneapolis and Uptown is our location--at Old Chicago next to the Transit Station.
