Science On The Rocks

This is basically the science museum's version of Culture and Cocktails, but better cause science is cooler.

Science on the Rocks
That's Hot: The Fleet's Summer Sizzler
Thursday, Jun 13,[masked]:30 pm to 9:30 pm

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center celebrates the season of tank tops and flip flops in style at the next fun-filled Science on the Rocks party. Turn up the heat on Thursday, June 13, at That’s Hot: The Fleet’s Summer Sizzler. Nosh on nibbles from San Diego’s favorite restaurants and sip cool drinks while soaking up the ambiance of summer-themed science activities.

June's event will also feature live music! Songs for People will be performing live at That's Hot: The Fleet's Summer Sizzler.

Additionally, you can find out what a Slinky has in common with surfing, and experience the thrill of designing your own rollercoaster. Let your creativity shine by making a solar bead bracelet, and have a blast with geometric bubbles. Take a swing at the science of baseball and see if your knowledge helps you score playing baseball on the Xbox. Sip your way to expertise in a rum-tasting seminar hosted by Deadhead Rum. Delve into board evolution and board shaping with a seminar on the science of surfing, led by the founder of Shaper Studios and members of SURFAID. Explore the Living Coast Discovery Center's touch tank and learn about the critters with which we share the sea.

Take a culinary tour with complimentary bites from Sushi on a Roll, Sensational Treats, The South Park Abbey, Feast on This and Carriage Trade Catering. Slake your thirst with a mini-cocktail from Deadhead Rum and craft beer samples from Mike Hess Brewing, Aztec Brewing Company and Manzanita Brewing. Or, you can call the shots at the no-host cocktail bar by BarWorks. At evening’s end, get a discounted luxury ride home from Uber.

    Ok boys and girls. They do still have tickets that you can buy at the door. We are meeting at the prado fountain. Look for the blonde haired (commonly mistaken as red) guy in red checkered shirt. I have a yellow balloon.

    Is it 6 or 6:30 that we meet? Event is at 6:30, but meetup says 6. Due to cat crapping on my bed, again, I may not be there til closer to 6:30. Kitty Prozac dosage doubled.

      Doors don't open till 630. But 6 allows people enough time to meet and introductions for anyone new. If you're confident youll recognize us inside come whenever you want.

      Good idea! We have a sign already, but this works too.

    • Kevin

      OK Leslie, I'll bite. I've modified my corporate badge so it contains the square Nerd Alert logo so Melissa will be sure she found us. Good thing I'm not trying to impress the ladies tonight.

      June 13, 2013

  • Mike

    Do y'all know if they usually sell out? Tickets are only available at the door now, but depends on availability.

    June 12, 2013

    • Dmitry

      Thanks Matt! I'll see everyone there, are we meeting prior to the event?

      June 13, 2013

    • Mike

      Won't be able to make it on time from work but I hope to attend. If someone hears they sold out please post.

      June 13, 2013

  • David

    As much as I was looking forward to the science of surfing talk, I'm probably going to miss this... too much work on my plate this week. See y'all at the next thing!

    June 13, 2013

  • Sandy aka The Bubbly O.

    Does anyone (probably a guy) live near Bay Park and/or will be driving by on way to this event? I have 3 objects I need removed from my car, and I will pay half your admission to do it for me. They're each ~ 30-40 lbs. Thanks!!!!!

  • Anali

    I'm sad to announce I won't be able to attend. It's been busy at work and I'm lucky if I get to leave by 7pm. So I guess next time.

      It goes till 9:30 but you would have a hard time finding everyone unless you recognized them inside.

      June 10, 2013

    • Anali

      I'm gonna see if I can get out of work earlier. I work on hillcrest so is pretty close.

    I just talked to the Fleet people, the dress attire is going to be pretty casual as the theme is summer, so wear what you want.
