Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

… What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is a fun, new community program by the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.

50 Scientists. 25 Bars. One Night. All Over San Diego County.

During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a beer and good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot. Just look for the sign that reads: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!"

The next Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar will take place on November 12, 2015. Check back over the next couple of weeks as we keep adding bars to the list to see if scientists will be at your favorite watering hole!
