Pub Gatherings

Pondering Pubs are individual locations where members and visitors gather to discuss works of art, music, literature, and ideas in a community setting. How often each pub meets and on what day of the week varies between pubs, typically based on the schedules of those who attend. Some pubs meet weekly, others biweekly, and others less frequently. Each pub’s leadership consists of the Host, MC, and Pub Representative. The host provides their building as a meeting location, the MC leads the gathering, and the Pub Representative serves as the contact between visitors, the individual pub, and the organization.
