Sunday Morning Breakfast Meetup

If you like to sleep in on Sunday and do not want to get up for our weekly hike but would like some lively conversation later in the morning, come join us for breakfast. Our hiking group always meets for a meal and a pleasant chat after our hike. Farmer Boy’s Restaurant is located on the corner of University Ave. and the 91 Freeway in downtown Riverside. Their prices are reasonable and there is a patio outside where we sit, making for a nice non-noisy location. If it is nice and we are able to sit outside, friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. This meetup time is 10:15 am, which is a close approximation. We might be a early or a few minutes late getting down the mountain, so wait for us if you do not find us there! Look for the IEAA tee shirts if it is your first time to attend.

Weekly Mount Rubidoux Fun Hike!

Join us for a FUN event EVERY Sunday morning! The regular hikers in this event rarely sign up even though they hike every Sunday. There are always more people than the two hosts so don’t be shy in joining us!

Want to have fun and stay healthy too? Join us for some exercise AND enjoy the wonders of nature at the same time! This exercise is fun and the views from the top are absolutely awesome! It takes about a half hour to hike up and a half hour down, maybe 45 minute each way at a slower pace. This is an easy hike, but may be strenuous for anyone who is not in good physical condition. Bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable shoes. If you are a jogger this will be a VERY easy hike, but if you never get any exercise you may want to try walking in your neighborhood for a few weeks before you do this hike.

FOOD: Each week we meet at the base of the mountain, hike up, enjoy the amazing view, talk for a while, solve all the world’s problems, hike back down, and have a light breakfast or early lunch at one of the local restaurants nearby. If you prefer to hike and skip the food that’s fine too.

DIRECTIONS: Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park is located on the western edge of downtown Riverside, just a few minutes off the 91 Freeway. From the 91 Freeway exit at the Mission Inn / University Off Ramp Proceed west on either Mission Inn Boulevard or University to Redwood Drive. Turn left on Redwood to 9th Street Turn right on 9th and go one block to the Park entrance (where 9th street ends)

BRIEF DIRECTIONS: Get on 9th street and go north until it ends!

PLEASE try to arrive a few minutes early because we like to start the hike on time. We meet in front of the 9th street entrance gate. Also, PLEASE RSVP since we will wait a while at the start point IF we know you are coming and you are a little late. Friendly dogs are welcome but remember that dogs must be on a short leash. No toilets in the park.

FREE parking on parts of 9th street and some others, but be careful since some of the streets are residents only parking. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE PARKING SIGNS SINCE THERE ARE LOTS OF RESTRICTIONS ON PARKING IN THE AREA. MUCH OF THE PARKING IS RESERVED FOR RESIDENTS WITH PERMITS! TICKETS ARE LIBERALLY DISPENSED BY PARKING ENFORCEMENT

FREE admission to the park.

The Red Dot is where we meet.

The Blue areas are the closest parking areas for non-residents.

Girls’ Night Out at Sevilla

We’re starting the year off with a trip to one of the tastiest restaurants in Riverside! Join us at Sevilla’s for delicious food, good friends, and lively conversation. Happy Hour is upstairs and goes until 6:30pm so be sure to get there in time for $3 tapas and discounted sangria.

Instead of our usual seating arrangement we’ll be at a few of the high-top tables by the bar so everyone can spread out and mingle.

***If you are going to drink please have a designated driver.***

***This event is limited to women only.***

AfterWords: Believers and Nonbelievers 1_2

In every conversation there are points missed, mistakes made and things to clarify. Same in our Believers and Nonbelievers In Discussion Events so why not do something about it?

Introducing AfterWords. Every two months we will revisit two episodes to finish the topics properly and maybe get a little meta.

Slightly different format–Kelly and me talking and more audience interaction.

Episode 1_2 is first, the numbers being the Believer/Nonbeliever reference episodes.

Join us live and free or this first event!

Reference episodes to watch first if you wish:

Humanists Join in the Women’s March in OC

Join me in the Women’s March. I have registered our group under the name of Humanists of the World because we work together in solidarity to create a better future for all walks of life. Many people do not understand or know what humanists are. This is our time to come out and show them by representing humanists from all around the world who are not able to attend an event such as this one and be heard.

Why is this march important? In response to the Women’s March on Washington Movement, local Orange County community groups have banned together to organize a march in Santa Ana. The goal is to send a message across the nation to the incoming administration that women’s rights are human rights. This march will be the first step toward unifying our communities and making our voices heard.  

What you should know:

1.  This is a peaceful family event. Everyone is welcome to join in on the march: fathers, bothers, sons and so-on. The aim of this march is to unite.

2.  Wear your humanist pride on your shirt, face art, buttons, parade banner, and/or sign and other any other way you can think to express your humanism.

3.  We are representing humanists worldwide. Therefore, show your pride and even the humanist logo.

4.  No pets please however, service animals are welcome.

5.  Contest. A $5 Starbucks gift card will be awarded to the most creative representation of humanism. Those who wish to not participate will be the judges.

6.  Wear sunblock, bring water and a snack to tide you over.

7.  Parking may be difficult. I plan on taking uber from Albertsons on 2000 17th St, Santa Ana, CA 92705 to the parade start line. You are welcome to share a ride with me or we can uber caravan.

Afterwards we can grab lunch at the 4th Street Market located at: 201 E 4th St, Santa Ana, CA 92701.
