Bar Studies 101, Melbourne Fringe Festival

Professional science communicator, Mefite lurker and mate of mine Owen is doing a show at the Fringe Festival this year: science demonstrations you can do with alcohol and bar equipment. I went on opening night and it was great fun. I want to go again to see how the show is shaping up over the course of the festival and with Mefites' love of bars, drinking and science thought I'd make it an event in case folk were interested. I'm proposing Tuesday because it's tight ass Tuesday, but it's running most nights of the week. If you're keen but can't make that night, I'm pretty flexible. Official blurb under the fold.

This is a very special episode of Melbourne Metafilter Meetups. So much so that we're being given several weeks notice! Mark your calendars or forever be wringing your hands in agony at having missed this historic event. This is like the second biggest event since Jessamyn came to Melbourne & only 2 people showed up. What a bunch of fucking slackers. [more inside]
