First of all, THANK YOU for being such great SciPub supporters and THANK YOU for being such a great community of science enthusiasts! Andy and I have really enjoyed spending First Friday evenings with all of you these past 15 months! But amongst all the excitement of each event, we haven't really gotten to talk to many of you to hear what gets you excited about science or pubs! And we want you guys to get to know each other so that you can recognize some friendly faces at SciPub events and have some great conversations with your fellow SciPubbers! So, in December, we are going to have our first ever SciPubSocial! Actually, we are so keen to have SciPubbers all get to know one another that we are doing TWO social events, so hopefully everyone can make it to at least one and some of you (like Andy and I and our son Mori) can attend both! The two events are as follows:
SciPub Brewery Tour and BBQ at Two Metre Tall Brewery
When: Sunday, December 4th
Where: Two Metre Tall Brewery
What: A sciencey tour of the brewery (with explanation of their brewing process) followed by beer tasting, first full drink free and a BBQ lunch of hamburgers and sausages made from their sustainably farmed "beer-fed beef" (veggie/vegan options will also be available - please email us at SciPubTas@gmail.com if you have any such dietary restrictions). As a safe, economical, environmental and friendly option, we will have round-trip bus tickets available to get folks to-and-from the brewer! These Walker's Coach bus tickets are limited so get in first and fast to reserve yours! The bus will leave from in front of the Information Centre (16-20 Davey St), at 11:30am. Tour will commence at 12:30, followed by drinks and BBQ lunch. Bus will leave Two Meter Tall at 4pm, arriving back to Hobart at 4:45.
Cost: $10 for just the tour, drink & lunch OR $25 for the bus to and from the brewery plus the tour, drink & lunch! We recommend the bus as a safe, economical, environmental and friendly option!
Also, don't forget about our other SciPubSocial event this year:
When : Thursday, December 1st
Where: The Duke function room
What: Just like a normal SciPub but without the presentations. We will provide free hot nibbles and you buy your own drinks. We will be inviting all of our former panellists as well!
Cost: Free! (well, you buy your own drinks...) But please RSVP
You don't have to be a SciPub regular to attend either of these events! First-timers and friends are welcome so if you have been looking for a reason to come to a SciPub event, join us for one of these friendly (and slightly nerdy) events!
RSVP is requested for the event at the Duke (to help us figure out catering) and tickets are necessary for the brewery tour/event. Both can be done here!
We look forward to seeing and meeting you all in December!
