Stories from the odd corners of history, science, art, and adventure.

WHAT: Six storytellers bring strange-but-true stories from history, science, art and adventure, to the stage, over cocktails.

WHAT KINDS OF STORIES: Badasses and crackpots, history’s worst ideas and most interesting eccentrics, things that exploded, heists, hoaxes, hidden treasures, epic explorations and upsetting animal facts. For example.

WHO: Experts and amateurs, scientists and poets, musicians and medievalists, artists, tech workers, baristas, and you. Each salon features selected speakers from an open call for submissions. Join us!

WHERE: Public Works, on Erie Street – one block from the 16th and Mission BART stop.

WHEN: We open the doors for cocktails an conversations at 6:30; talks begin at 7:30. Get there early if you want to nab a seat.

WHY: San Francisco deserves weird, independent events, and real world gatherings in this increasingly digital age.

HOW: Against many odds.


DRINKS? But of course.
