  • Uggghhh, I hated chemistry and physics in high school.  If food were not involved in this whole operation, I would have dismissed the idea a long time ago.  The International Spy Museum is taking me back to school tonight with an evening of entertaining and informative presentations on the specific gravity, surface area and pH Levels for creating the perfect cocktail.  Guests will also enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, hands-on demonstrations and a chance to sample signature drinks.  “The Science Behind the Cocktail” is brought to you by Canadian Mist and hosted by The International Spy Museum. 

The When:  Thursday, September 30, 2010 from 6 to 8 PM.
