Popular Science Presents: The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week

THU // OCT 31

The Weirdest Thing I Learn This Week can get plenty spooky any Wednesday of the year: Popular Science's hit podcast has featured tales of murderous taxidermy art, fatal insomnia, and the time people tried to turn George Washington into a zombie (yes, really).

Can you imagine a better team to spend Halloween drinking with? Neither could we.

This October, let Rachel Feltman and the rest of the Weirdest Thing crew take you on a spooktacular journey through the creepiest and crawliest facts they can find. You'll come away with six scary stories from the history of science, medicine, and tech just in time to share them at all your black masses and holiday masquerades. As always, each will be lovingly researched, Wikipedia-spiraled, fact-checked, and fawned over by one of the ace reporters behind The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week. All you have to do is sit back, sip a cocktail, and let them spin their little science yarns for you.

Costumes? Duh. And tying your ensemble to a previously featured Weirdest Thing fact might just win you a super-special spooktacular prize.

Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.
