Mustache de Mayo 10 #MDMX

May 20, 2017 @ 12:00 pm4:00 pm
Beus Pond Park

10 years ago we started something special, a community gathering of mustache aficionados (and the people that love them). Did we start the mustache custom? No. Can we take credit for the hipster mustache movement? Possibly. Were we the first to celebrate a stach bash? Arguably. All we know is that we will keep it going and we want you to be there. We invite you to join us for this momentous occasion. Rules of the trade…BYOM: Bring your own meat to grill. BYOM: Bring your own mustache. (Real or fake, we gladly accept both). BSTS: Bring something to share. Raise your mug/glass/can/bottle to 10 years of the mustache and to 10 more! #MDMX

Grounds for Coffee 25th Street

NOTE: We usually meet upstairs but please check the comments before arriving for any changes.

Has church got you all tied in knots? Is your sect driving a wedge between your behavior and your true feelings? Real morality begins here! Does anyone treat you badly for asking questions? We don’t. Are all your friends from “church”? Make a few that aren’t.

Hang out with the like-minded without falling for confirmation bias and bias bias. Don’t know what that is? Come ask us about logic, reason, & good decision making!

Enjoy friendly discussion and debate! Religion, politics, science, technology, movies, music, video games… whatever! Come hang out!

There are several regulars who don’t RSVP on either Meetup or Facebook. A typical “Unday School” meetup has 8-14 attendees. We often (but not always) have yummy, circumference-building snacks for everyone to enjoy as well thanks to some of our regulars.

Grounds for Coffee is kind enough to let our group use this space free-of-charge so please remember to support their business by making a purchase.

Mikaela is a transplant from Portland, fell in love with Ogden her first day in town and created Indie Ogden the next week. She enjoys outdoor adventures with her 2 kiddos and making a mess crafting. You can find her at a local cafe or cycling around town with her family.
