First Friday’s Humanist Happy Hour

The first Friday of every month is OMAHA’s social gathering known as the “Humanist Happy Hour.” It’s an opportunity together with other Humanists for dinner, drinks and general discussion in a relaxed atmosphere.

Discussions often range from the latest domestic and international news, to science, religion, humanism and even the weather. If you hunger for intelligent discussion but are equally satisfied with just pizza and beer, then this is the event for you. We’ll do our best to provide the former, but are confident you’ll enjoy the later!

The location of this event can vary so please be sure to check our meetup.com site for complete details and to RSVP so we know for sure how big a section we’ll need.

To RSVP please visit our meetup.com site. We hope to see you there!


Secular Cinema Series

Join us for our “Secular Cinema” series where we’ll present films intended to provoke thought and encourage debate. Some films will challenge traditional religious thought, some will explore Humanism, while other will investigate social issues ranging from the environment to equal rights, poverty, and domestic violence and terrorism.  Following the film attendees are invited to join us at a nearby eatery for dinner, drinks and discussion.

Our “Secular Cinema” series is free and open to the public. For specific details on where, when and what will be shown, and to RSVP, please visit our meetup.com site.

Science Café

As part of our commitment to lifelong learning, OMAHA regularly attends the Science Cafés arranged by the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older), and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. A science café’s casual meeting place, plain language, and inclusive conversation create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for people with no science background. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period.

Science Cafés are held once or more each month at the Slowdown Pub at 729 N. 14th Street in Omaha. Pizza is provided by the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures for the first 50 people.
