Originally started as a talk series by Vanessa Bailey and Rob Zellem, Space Drafts ended up with Gautham Narayan, Sarah Morrison, and Evan Schneider (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)

Now in our Fourth year, Space Drafts is helmed by Monika Soraisam, Stacey Alberts, Cassandra Lejoly, and Ryan Boyden and they’ve got even more cunning plans!
