Originally started as a talk series by Vanessa Bailey and Rob Zellem, Space Drafts (as we still call ourselves because AoTTUS is pretty tortured) now comes with

  • trivia (we have cool prizes to give away)
  • star-gazing (if the monsoon cooperates)
  • a local food truck serving up deliciousness
  • and puppies (no really, we have mascots)
