Third Thursday of the month – The Monthly Argument Drinks, Dinner and Discussion
We had our last full scale regular debate on June 14, 2112 and have no plans at this stage to revive them. However, The Monthly Argument lives on as a less formal gathering for drinks, dinner and discussion on the third Thursday of the month at Graduate House. We may trial a few different formats such as pre-reading on a particular topic or a guest speaker. However, even if the evening is totally informal, the idea is to spend at least part of the time exchanging different perspectives on political and social issues and not just small talk.
Our topic for discussion on November 15, 2112 will be Education in the 21st Century.
Dinner will be a resident’s style buffet dinner comprising soup, main course and dessert all for only $15.00 for Graduate Union members and $20.00 for non-members. Drinks are at members’ bar prices.
Try to be there by 6.30pm for drinks and chat. We eat at 7pm sharp.
Book at firstname.lastname@example.org by the Wednesday before or RSVP at The Monthly Argument Meetup Group if you are a member.
