Hello folks,
 
How are you??  My name is Brian Hart, and I am the Organizer of SoCal Science Cafe!  I want to welcome you all to this group, and I am so happy and grateful that you're all members!  I want to write to you as I often do and keep you updated on the latest news with Science Cafe.  At the intersection of Science, Lattes, and Life, you'll find The Science Cafe. At The Science Cafe, join us as we explore your favorite science topic in plain English, with wine or coffee on the side. We do things on a "Discovery Channel" level. Membership is FREE. Join us for doing everything from hearing lectures to eating food and drinking a little wine with our science.   Now 2 years old and counting!
 
On that note, let's get started!  Is there anyone you know of who might really get a kick out of being in the group?  Then tell them!
 
SCIENCE CAFE BUZZ
---------------------
Thanks, Assistant Organizers! Did you know...the Science Cafe had its 2nd Anniversary last Saturday, April 14, 2007?  We have 379 members and we've held 50 events in the past two years!  How's that for a Happy Birthday to The Science Cafe!  I want to take a special moment and acknowledge our dutiful and loyal team of Science Cafe Assistant Organizers!  They are: Ben Wiehe, Betty Romero, Christy Boyer, Dan G., Darryl Brock, Mark D. Schneider, Melissa Rentchler, and Nicole Wilson!   I want to take time out and especially acknowledge Mark D. Schneider for his two years of service to the Cafe.  And also kudos out to Melissa Rentchler for her one year of service as a volunteer organizer!  Thanks guys!  Our newest Assistant Organizers are Christy Boyer, Nicole Wilson, Dan G., and Darryl Brock!   Ben Wiehe is outreach and education coordinator at NOVA scienceNOW, the people who have been supporting the Science Cafe with funding and video clips for the past two years!  Thanks, NOVA!
 
What a tragedy that happened at Virginia Tech today.  How sad.  The heartfelt sympathies and condolences of mine and all the Science Cafe organizers and members go out to the families and students and staff affected.  What a sad day in the history of the Nation.
 
UPCOMING EVENTS
-------------------------
Our next Meetup: Visitor Night at the UCI Observatory

  We cordially invite members to attend Visitor Night at the UCI Observatory with us!  Why is it at Lee's Sandwiches then??  Well, that's because we are gathering for dinner at Lee's Sandwiches from 7-7:45 PM, wherein we'll pile into the cars to head on  
 
up to the Observatory.  We're meeting so a) we can all find the group, and b) then we can pile into each other's cars even more so as to save on the $7 parking structure fee.  This fee is a per vehicle fee that must be paid because the Anteater Parking
  Structure is the only place the Observatory Shuttle leaves from!  Join us as we look at the Orion Nebula (left) as well as some other pretty sights in the heavens!  Bring warm clothing and comfortable outdoor shoes.

  When: 7:00 PM Friday, May 18  Where: Meet at the Lee's Sandwiches on Campus Drive, by the In-N-Out.

  Even though there's a fee for the parking structure, the UCI Observatory Visitor Night itself is free -- no admission charge.  All ages allowed!

Well, that's all I have for this issue of This Week at The Science Cafe!  Until next week, have fun seeing, hearing, and exploring science with us, as we travel together on the journey of discovery!
