50 Scientists. 25 Bars. One Night. All Over San Diego County.

What sounds like the beginning of a bad joke is actually a fun community-wide event! During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar®, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a good conversation in a local bar.

Check back regularly as we continue to update the lineup of bars and scientists.
