The Curse of Knowledge
Once you know something, it becomes impossible to imagine what it’s like not to know it
Every third Monday of the month the Victorian Branch of the Australian Skeptics hosts a talk or event held at:
LA NOTTE RESTAURANT,
140 Lygon Street, Carlton
Join us for an informal meal and social chat with like-minded people at the restaurant from 6 pm.
Alternatively, you can turn up at 8 pm for the speaker or event in the function room at the rear of the restaurant.
Go to the events tab on this page for more details or check the notice above for upcoming events.
