Brains are lubricated along with throats at this bar/performance space. Every night different experts are brought in to present serious information—on science, history, political science, and more—in a playful fashion. So that might mean a battle between two teams trying to prove that birds are a better species than bees (or vice versa, the audience decides); or a philosopher giving a clip- and laugh-laden talk on the ethical lessons to be gleaned from TV’s The Golden Girls. The shows may have silly premises, but you’ll walk away entertained and enlightened most nights.
