From UVa Today:

"Have you ever wondered what, exactly, a Higgs boson is? Or what a future quantum computer might be able to do? Or if climate change is real?

Then ask a scientist. Maybe with a drink in your hand.

You can Thursday evening at 7:30 at Black Market Moto Saloon in Charlottesville, when University of Virginia physicist Bob Hirosky will talk about the Higgs boson and why it's such big news these days. Best of all, you can ask Bob about it during an informal 20-minute-or-so Q&A period.

The event – free and open to anyone – is part of a new U.Va. program called Science Straight Up, a monthly "science café" designed to promote community conversations about timely scientific topics in a relaxed setting. You can't beat a saloon for that."
