We meet on the first Thursday of every month at 7 o’clock. As for location, we move around a bit, and thus advise all to double-check each month to be sure. Our regular watering hole is Smith’s Restaurant of Cohoes thanks to their gracious hospitality, amenable acoustics, chef Stefan’s menu and their Chestertonian ambiance. ***At present we are testing out Scarborough’s in Latham!***
Our Next Meeting (at Scarborough’s in Latham), will take place on Thursday, December 1st, at 7:00 PM, kicking off what we expect to be a 2-month sojourn through GKC’s “biography” of Charles Dickens.
