A happy hour forum for science and culture, Cafés offer a unique experience for adults to explore our world from distinct and surprising viewpoints—drawing connections between scientific research, culture, environment and everyday life. Enjoy lively talks on a variety of topics led by guest speakers from the University of Minnesota and beyond along with the atmosphere of the Bryant Lake Bowl theater in Minneapolis.

Featured Speaker: Urban Organics

Located in the former Hamm’s Brewery in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood of St. Paul, Urban Organics has transformed five stories of dilapidated concrete into a thriving fish and vegetable farm. Tonight, the company’s founders will reveal how they combine current technologies with the age old practice of aquaponics to produce healthy, sustainable food and new economic opportunities in the city.
