If you think Washingtonians can’t come together to talk like civilized human beings about guns and gun legislation… well, you might be right. But that doesn’t mean Nikki Enfield isn’t going to try to make it happen.

On Monday, April 29, Wandering Minds will host one of its regular conversations and events — only this time the session will focus on an incredibly charged and politically relevant topic: guns. The event will run from 7 to 9 pm at Public Bar at 1234 18th Street NW.

For the evening, Wandering Minds will host Clinton Yates, columnist for The Washington Post’s “The Root DC” to speak for the pro-gun control side; Andrew Gaeckle, an activist for a moderate path who can also speak as a victim of gun violence; and Maryland State Delegate C. T. Wilson, a former prosecutor turned elected official to stand up for the pro-gun rights side.

All sides and opinions are welcome to join the judge-free debate.

Tickets to next Monday’s Wandering Minds are $9 in advance, $12 at the door and can be purchased online

Ever wonder how our nation’s historical events would play out in modern times — especially on social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook?

At Cause Philanthropub on Sunday, January 27, Civil War expert Aaron Killian will lead a discussion on how the country might have responded to a national war in today’s current society and culture. How could our nation endure such carnage? What changes occurred in society, religion, and the role of women? These are just some of the questions Killian will ask to a group of wandering minds.

Tickets are $5 for “early birds” (the first 20 customers), $9 in advance and $12 at the door.

Cause Philanthropub is located at 1926 9th Street NW. The event is from 6 until 8 pm. For more information, visit the website.
