Atheist website meetup

Reader Chak Dantuluri is organzing an Indian dinner at his house in Naperville, a Chicago suburb, a week from this Saturday (i.e., on Sept. 28) at 7 p.m. I’ll be there and so will Hemant Mehta (aka “The Friendly Atheist”) as well as other heathens. Chak’s wife Kavita, who I’m told is an excellent cook, will be preparing a largely home-cooked Indian meal, including both north and south Indian food.

This is sort of a benefit, so we’re asking everyone to donate at the dinner to our official website charity™, Doctors Without Borders (suggested donation $50); all the proceeds will go to that organization.

If you’re in the area and interested (there is room for 5-7 more people), contact Chak at his email address, drchak@yahoo.com.

    I believe you meant to spell it Hemant Mehta.

    Dammit! Out of town that weekend. Yes, it does sound great, for a lot of reasons.

    You will be posting food pics, we hope?

    And guest pics too because we haven’t see Hemant since he tied the knot!

    “This Saturday”, but then you listed “(Sept 28)”. Can you clarify please?

    Naperville is right in my area, but I will be out of town on the 28th. Would have loved to attend

    The good Dr. Chak Just replied to me that it is on the 28th. Which is it?

      Dr. Chak is right and I was wrong: it’s definitely on the 28th. Sorry!

        Ok, too bad I’ll be out of town. Have a great night!
