To help you overcome the loss of daylight savings time (until March anyway), I’ve compiled a list of activities this week that I hope will help keep your mind off the 5pm darkness.
First off, take a gander at the previous post about just the beer debut events this week: November 1-6: Horse Brass Pub turns 33, the Abyss, a dopplebock, and Prost!. November is shaping up nicely.
Learn about cutting-edge topics in science and technology from leading researchers and scientists, all while enjoying food and drinks. Don’t expect a remote speaker behind a distant podium. Instead, experience an informal atmosphere where you can interact with experts and where there are no silly questions. No scientific background is required; just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge!
The topic tonight (Monday, November 2) is Spread the Word, Not the Flu: H1N1 and You, where you will learn not to share your pint of Hammerhead with someone exhibiting cold sores. Or something like that . . . The event runs from 7pm to 9pm, but get there early to get a good seat – doors open at 5pm.
John Cleese is in town! He’s here for a performance tonight at the Newmark Theatre of his traveling comedy show A Final Wave at the World (or The Alimony Tour, Year One).
For some background about the show, I recommend this New York Magazine interview with John Cleese from a few weeks ago : Exclusive: John Cleese Slams Ex-Wife, Terry Gilliam, Republicans, His Hotel …
And then of course this Thursday, November 5th is First Thursday. Personally, I try to avoid any part of town with art galleries and yuppies on the first Thursday of each month, but for those of you who really enjoy seeking out free wine viewing art in obnoxious crowds, at least you have First Thirstday to light the way.
And stay tuned to this blog later this week for weekend events, and a John Cleese related giveaway!
