We predict that "Science of Cocktails" will be a fun way to elevate your level of drinking knowledge in 2010. Mixologists from 15 Romolo, Orson, The Alembic, 83 Proof, Annabelle's Bistro, and more to be announced will lead a series of hands-on alcoholic science experiments that'll demonstrate chemical reactions, properties of physics, and -- perhaps most importantly -- how to neutralize hangovers.
This epic liquid fund-raising laboratory takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Exploratorium
(3601 Lyon at Baker). Admission is $50-$75 and available for advance purchase at the official event site
. Recipes and experiment methodology will be posted online in January, so you can
try this at home, kids.
