On Tuesday night I moderated Science Cafe Concord’s discussion about the science of beer, no cover charge in The Draft Sports Bar. About 40 people showed up.
On Wednesday night Ian Underwood of Ask Dr. Math and I hosted a discussion called “What is this thing called Math?” after a showing of “The Man Who Knew Infinity” at Red River Theaters in downtown Concord – $10 tickets. And they had to turn people away; more than 50 people filled the screening room (I forgot to count heads).
Yes, that’s right: More people paid to talk about about math than showed up free to talk about beer.
I’m going to say that again: More people paid to talk about about math than showed up free to talk about beer!!!!
I don’t if this says something about Concord or something about people who read my column or something about humanity – but I like it.
