Why is it called brown bag sessions? Not white or black bag. Black bag sessions

    Never heard of this term until this thread. It sounded like a vomiting session in a brown bag. I remember throwing up in a brown bag when I was 10 lol

    All I know about that is it's like a short talk (usually longer than lighting ones) session.
    I've only experienced it remotely, so I don't know why "brown bag" is in the name other than the possible links to people bringing take away bags to the talk.

    "A brown bag meeting is an informal meeting that generally occurs in the workplace around lunchtime. This type of meeting is referred to as a brown bag meeting or a brown bag seminar because participants typically bring their lunches, which are associated with being packed in brown paper bags."

    We don't have those kind of bags here, so that probably explains why there's no such expression too
