Oregonians for Science and Reason, which promotes science and critical thinking through events statewide, has sent a notice about monthly meetups held in various cities in the Willamette Valley, and Portland is among them.
The one in Portland is co-sponsored by Portland Skeptics in the Pub and held the last Sunday of each month at 5 p.m. in Broadway Grill and Brewery, 1700 N.E. Broadway St. Host is Eric Tergerson.
