RSS icon Comments on You've Heard About Drinking Liberally. But What About Science on Tap?


Hey Josh - did you find out about that one in the latest issue of Wired? I noticed it there and was sort of surprised I'd never heard of it either. Good for Seattle - it's always embarrassing when we don't make the lists we should.

“Stress, Aging and the Effects on our Body: is Caregiving Hazardous to Your Health?”

If Prof Vitaliano has to cancel for some reason, I could give this lecture.

Oh goodie, I need another excuse to go out for a brew or three.

Had to dig through the site to verify that alcohol was served. (the first page refers to "refilling coffee")

Very nice, I saw kip thorn a few years back, and booze helps the science go down.

Yeah, I've been to this a couple of times. They do it in the pub (which is downstairs from the bookstore proper) so of course there is alcohol. They might have larger events (when a popular author is in town, or something) upstairs, but the ones I attended were in the bar.

They're not as entertaining as you might think (science types don't drink the way politicos do, and I suspect that -- again, unlike political types -- alcohol makes them quieter). But if it's a subject that interests you, the give-and-take can be fascinating, particularly since there are often experts from the UW or industry sitting around and they're more willing to speculate "beyond the science" with a drink in hand.

Thanks for the details.

Yes. Saw it in Wired.
