We have an amazing lineup once again including some fun prizes and special appearances! Limited early nerd tickets are available, so get on it!

When: Tuesday, May 2nd; Doors @ 7

#3. I love dead things… and you can too!
Natural history museums are stuffed to the gills with strange creatures, crumbling papers, dark corners, and of course, dead things. Why do we have buildings full of this stuff, and where do they come from? Together, we will embrace the macabre mystique of cabinets of curiosities, and even get to touch real museum objects, so that the amazing stories of science can unfold, right under your fingertips.”
