Cal Academy "How-To Nightlife" July 11th

Read micro-expressions to detect lies, learn magic tricks, identify plants, and kill somebody with curry? This looks like fun to me, and the Academy of Sciences is always a winner. I'm looking into possible group pricing if we can get 10 or more firm RSVPs.

Event link:


This week, NightLife hosts the ultimate how-to workshop. We provide the skills, you figure out how to make ‘em pay the bills, or at least impress someone special.

Find out how to detect a lie from micro-expression aficionado Dr. David Matsumoto, see Magic Curry Kart demonstrate how to make a killer curry, and learn how to identify plants with Academy botanist Tom Daniel. Put a few tricks up your sleeve courtesy of master magician Dan Chan, become an origami whiz with guidance from Bay Area Rapid Folders (BARF), and felt your own Woolbuddy.

Plus, learn how to DJ with Urban Music Program, make the “raw essentials” of electronic music using Ableton Push and other tools with Christopher Willits; how to play a modular synthesizer from the experts at i/o; and how to be a filmmaker with Disposable Film Fest.

In the planetarium, discover how to navigate the night skies at 6:30, followed by two showings of Earthquake.

Music by Slayers Club & Friends



To get a group rate, we would need to sign up the group by the end of the day tomorrow 7/3.  We would get a discount of 15% making tickets $10.20 each. I will only sign up a group if we have 10 RSVPs by noon 7/3.

    I'll be hanging out near the entrance to the gift shop - inside the main entrance and to the right - until about 6:15.

    Do I need to purchase the ticket in advance? And do I have to be on time? There's something else I should be at until 6pm in downtown SF, which means getting to the CalAcademy around 6:45 :-(

      Follow the event link above for more details on tickets. They do have an option to buy on person at the ticket window. It doesn't say whether it has to be in advance or not. I'll send you my number where you can text me if you'll be there later.

    I got my ticket for Thursday. We don't have enough people for the group rate, unfortunately. Does everyone else have tickets? I'll be coming from Oakland. I was planning to take public transit, but I can be persuaded to carpool if anyone else is coming from the east bay.
