Three Cocktail Science Events at Museums This February

For seven (!) years now the Exploratorium in San Francisco has offered a major event/fundraiser called The Science of Cocktails. Now other science museums are getting in on the action. 

As science and cocktails are pretty much my two favorite things (with Baywatch coming in a close third), I wish I could attend all of these. Museum-hopping meets bar-hopping? IN.


The original: Science of Cocktails at The Exploratorium in San Francisco 


Site: Link here

Date: Feb 3, 2017


Science of Cocktails blends the unique beer, wine, and cocktail culture of the Bay Area with the Exploratorium’s hands-on explorations of science and art. Learn about the distillation process, check out the chemistry behind brewing beer, or discover your favorite new vintage. San Francisco’s most spirited fundraiser sells out every year, and you don’t want to miss it.

Proceeds from Science of Cocktails go toward the Exploratorium's innovative educational programs. The Lab is proud to support these important initiatives and strives to educate young patrons about these programs.

Date: Feb 9th, 2017


Celebrate the Artistry of Mixology and the Science Behind it. On February 9, 2017, the Science of Cocktails signature fundraiser will transform Science World at TELUS World of Science into Vancouver’s largest laboratory, where the city’s most talented bartenders and chefs will showcase the chemistry, biology and physics behind preparing modern cocktails and cuisine. Each ticket includes complimentary cocktails from 20+ bar stations run by award-winning bartenders, paired with 12 food stations featuring molecular gastronomy from local talent. You will also enjoy a variety of special cocktail science activities, hands-on science demonstrations and classic Science World fun. Ticket proceeds will support Science World’s Class Field Trips for underserved schools in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

The Newbie: Science with a Twist at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix



Site: Link here

Date: February 20, 20917


We're starting 2017 off in the roaring 20's. Join us for this adults-only event as we travel back in time to a prohibition era-inspired party which includes science with a Speakeasy twist. Dress as a flapper, bootlegger or gangster and enjoy food, music and specialty cocktails including Highball and Gin Ricky while roaming all four levels of the Center. 



 Bonus! Not a science museum, but cocktails at a museum nonetheless. Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail at the Dallas Museum of Art. They are also hosting a party in February, the BMA Speakeasy, on February 4th.
