December 1 - Meet the SGU Podcast Rogues

The Rogues of the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe podcast are going to be in Washington, D.C., and you have the opportunity to meet them! Join us on Saturday, December 1 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Cambria Hotel lounge, located at 899 O St NW in Washington, DC. The lounge has full dinner service as well as a bar. Pick up the new book  The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe: How to Know What's Really Real in a World Increasingly Full of Fake beforehand and they will be happy to sign it for you (available at and other online booksellers).

For those thinking of attending the SGU meetup, here is some important information regarding how to get there.

For those coming by Metro from Greenbelt and points after, the Shaw – Howard University station is where you'd want to exit. It is a 0.3 mile walk from the Shaw station to the hotel. Red Line riders may, if they wish, walk 0.7 miles from the Gallery Place station to the hotel, or take a free shuttle to the Mt. Vernon Sq. station and walk 0.3 miles, or take bus 70.  There will be no Yellow Line service at all on Dec. 1.  Metro track work schedules are subject to change, so if you are coming by Metro, be sure to check their website before heading out.

Parking in the garage at 1415 9th Street NW will be $6.00 per hour according to Colonial Parking. However, any special events that night might affect the cost.
