Ended up at the Wild Oat tonight. Love that place. I think it's what hubby and I miss the most now that we no longer live in the Glebe.
Turns out it was fortuitous for us to stumble in there tonight as it meant we learned about an event series that we might not have otherwise.
It's called Science Cafe and it happens every second Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 at the Wild Oat. It's hosted by the faculty of Science at Carleton University.
Some upcoming talks of note include:
Feb. 11 - Green Biotechnology: Harnessing plant biomass for biofuels and biomaterials
Feb. 25 - Water blues: Bottled water vs. tap water
June 3 - The trade-off between housing density and sprawl area: Minimizing impacts to forest biodiversity
And if you can't get to discussions you want to because, oh I don't know, a 50 DAY bus strike, or if you are not from Ottawa, there are podcasts available.
