Please join us once again on Thursday, July 7th for Happy Hours at Mexico Lindo within the Fitger’s Complex at 600 Superior Street East. The fun (and reduced prices) begin at 4:00 pm and stay in effect until 6:00 pm. Park in the covered lot and get your parking stub validated at the restaurant. Massive margaritas lubricate our discussions and skepticism animates them. We’ll save a seat for you and a friend. It’s the coolest place to be downtown during tourist season. You can reach the restaurant at (218) 727-1978.
We meet on the first Sunday of every month at Somers Lounge, which is the first building you encounter on entering the campus of the College of St. Scholastica from the main (College Street) entrance. The doors open at 9:30 am and the meeting begins at 10:00 am with some announcements and a five minute reflection from one of our members. After the presentation, those who are interested and have free time are invited to gather at the Tavern on the Hill (1102 Woodland Avenue) for brunch and continued conversation. We’ve always had good food and great service there.
Sunday, June 5th, Patrick Elliott from FFRF
The Religiously Manipulative Supreme Court
The U.S. Supreme Court will decide several blockbuster cases relating to religion before the end of June. Patrick Elliott will explain how the court is transforming state/separation in devastating ways. Attendees will get insights on current cases before the court as well as important FFRF cases, which demonstrate the need for the separation between state and church.
Patrick Elliott serves as the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Senior Litigation Counsel. Patrick hails from St. Paul, Minn. and joined FFRF as an attorney in 2010.
Patrick oversees litigation for FFRF, including important First Amendment cases involving religion in schools, religious displays, and free speech violations. Patrick is admitted to practice in Wisconsin, Minnesota, the U.S. Supreme Court, and many federal district and circuit courts around the country.
We meet at Somers Lounge, which is the first building you encounter on entering the campus of the College of St. Scholastica from the College Street main entrance. The doors open at 9:30 am and the meeting begins at 10:00 am. Because we believe in science, will be vaccinated. After the presentation, those who are interested can gather at a nearby restaurant for brunch and continued conversation. Please note that the student cafeteria is now closed for the summer.
