Pagan Night Out: April is Earth Day Month!

Pagan Night Out will meet at the Fountain, our "new home" which serves great food and drinks in a friendly atmosphere. This is a chance to meet new friends, talk with old ones and network a bit within the pagan community. There's no agenda or real purpose to the event itself, although people who attend can always plan other events on their own. The last event co-sponsored by Albany's PNO was the Witches' Masquerade Ball in 2009.

Also, just a reminder that Earth Day is coming soon, on April 22nd. Do you have any plans for observing Earth Day? I like to clean up trash in the neighborhood, and do some guerilla gardening. I think modern pagans should try to honor the Earth in some way on this special day.

See You Tonight at The Fountain!

So we're happy to be having Pagan Night Out at our new venue, The Fountain on New Scotland Avenue. We don't have a "usual spot" but we'll try to sit near the front. No real agenda, just a way to get together with local pagans. Maybe we can talk about some future activities like Pagan Pride Day or other public events.

Hope to see you there!

Pagan Night Out: Last Month at Washington Tavern! (New Venue)

This month's Pagan Night Out will be held at the Washington Tavern for the last time! Hope to see you there this Friday night.

Beginning in September, Pagan Night Out will be held at the Fountain on New Scotland Avenue (right next door to Graney's). We are excited about this change in venue! The Fountain has a friendly atmosphere, fabulous food and great service! It is conveniently located ion the #13 bus route, and there is also ample parking. We'll continue to meet at 6:30 pm on the 13th of every month.

Hope you all will venture out to have a drink and some snacks with your local pagan community.

Come on out tonight!

We're very excited to have Pagan Night Out on Friday the 13th! And of course we always look forward to the great beer selection and yummy food at the Washington Tavern. Hmm, what shall it be tonight? A Burger Melt? Macaroni and Cheese with Lobster? Chicken Wings and Pub Fries? Shepherd's Pie?

Todd, Sarah, Kate and I will be there tonight, and whoever else shows up. Hope to see you there!

Pictures from the Witches' Masquerade Ball!

Well, we didn't have very good attendance, perhaps because we were competing with a number of other seasonal events, (Roller Derby Halloween event, Zombie Film Festival, Harry Potter Ritual etc.), plus it was rainy and windy. We had fun regardless. We're planning to try again next year and really hope more people will attend!

Below are some pictures for your enjoyment!

Greetings and blessing of the late summer harvest!

Welcome to the Blog for Albany's Pagan Night Out. We meet every month on the 13th at 6:30 pm at the Washington Tavern on Western Avenue in Albany, NY. It's not formal or structured at all, although we usually try to sit near the front at the table by the window. We order up some beer and some food and talk about whatever we want! Hope to see you there sometime.

This blog will be a place to announce any additional activities, cancellations, or any concerns related to the PNO. For example, some of us are planning a Hallowe'en Ball in October; plans are being hatched, so watch this space for more details soon!
