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!"

Here are the bars participating on August 20th, 2015. Don't see your favorite bar yet? Don't fret! More bars are to follow over the next couple of weeks, so be sure to check back!
