What is the Denver Café Scientifique2?
Many people have told us that the Café at the 'Koop is sometimes very crowded (yes, we noticed!) and also, Tuesdays are not always convenient for some people (if inconvenience were randomly distributed, that would be one seventh of our list). So we thought we'd try a second Café, never on the same night as the original. It's an experiment. Eric Meer, long-time Café enthusiast, is the point person, and a small (we hope, soon to grow) committee is helping him.
Place: Brooklyn's at the Pepsi Center. 901 Auraria Parkway, directly across the parkway from the Auraria Campus. Lots of free or cheap parking on non-game nights (drive around the little circle, into the lot, tell the attendant (if any) that you're coming to the Café Sci). This is a sports bar, and huge, but there is an upstairs lounge area that is pretty quiet on evenings when the Nuggets, Avalanche, Mammoth, and Broncos are not playing. That dictates when we will schedule a Café. They are nice people and the waitstaff are reported to all be science buffs; food and drink available throught the evening.
Time: 6:30 PM, running until 8 PM.
Next: Monday 29 August 2011.
Speakers: Our guest speakers for this event are Stephen Lyons from PBS, Project Director, The Mystery of Matter: Search for the Elements, and Carole Berg, Chemistry Professor, Bellevue College, Washington.
