Astronomy on Tap is boldly going where we’ve never been before … a different bar in Brooklyn! This time we’re putting the phun in astrophysics! Intimidated by the world’s scariest science? Don’t worry, it’s just rocket science, not brain surgery! MC for the night, DJ Tycho Brewhaha will ease you in with a game that tests your internet-pop-culture knowledge & creativity, and our presenters for the evening are especially talented at teaching science to kids so they should have no problem with drunk adults, right…? Right?!?

Plus, Pacific Standard is home of the famous Neil deGrasserac Tyson cocktail (pictured above)!
