Whats happening???
A buffet style dinner/mixer, a raffle for local goodies, and a panel discussion/Q&A with Jerry Beck, Alissa Bazinet, and Damien Thomas.

What is this dinner for?
We are organizing a Global Psychedelic Dinner to bring our local community together, have an open conversation about psychedelics, and to help the non-profit Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) raise funds for research into MDMA-assisted psychotherapy to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Is there a cost to attend?
We aim to both make this dinner available to all interested, as well as help fund MAPS' work. To do both, we are suggesting donation of $10, which will go directly to funding MAPS' research.

Do I need to RSVP?
-No, the dinner is open/walk-in. However, it helps us gauge how many people to expect if you click the "Going" or "Interested" buttons on this page.
If you wish for to rsvp and donate in advance, please go to our Razoo page to donate, email us your receipt and we will place you on our guest list.

Are you promoting drug use?
No. The purpose of this dinner is in no way encouraging anyone to go out and try MDMA or any currently illicit substances. Our goal is to support legal, clinical research into the benefit of MDMA and create a safe space for people to honestly and openly talk about the varieties of experience (both positive and negative) that they have/had with psychedelics.

For more information about MAPS and their research, please visit

"MAPS has completed an international series of Phase 2 clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD, and is now preparing for the much larger Phase 3 trials required to obtain U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, starting in 2017. As long as we receive the necessary funding, we anticipate FDA approval for MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD as soon as 2021."
