Amazing fossils are still out there, waiting to be discovered.

After all, fossils are the only direct evidence of how life evolved on Earth.

SciCafe brings together inquisitive minds for an informal evening emceed by experts on cutting-edge science topics. Come with friends or meet new people, talk science, and more — it’s a happy hour Mr. Wizard would be proud of. Happening on the first Wednesday of every month, these 21-and-up SciCafes are presented by the American Museum of Natural History in the Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth.

    olga: you can attend (i see kids there all the time, so a 19-year-old is certainly welcome). it’s just that you can’t purchase alcohol. but there’s snacks and non-alcoholic beverages available, so don’t let that stop you from attending.

    i changed the wording a little bit so people won’t be confused or think they can’t attend (because they’re too young).
