Science of a Cocktail Party

November 15, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$75 - $150

There will be smart people and beautiful people and interesting people (often the same people), hors d’oeuvres, open bar with the signature pop-rock cocktail, a DNA extraction demo (see your own DNA!), plus cool neuroscience demonstrations you’ll participate in,  all in the name of science and fun. Plus, our special Guest of Honor, Dr. Marius Stan 

Dr. Marius Stan - ANL

 aka “Bogdan Wolynetz,” owner of the carwash and notorious eyebrows on the Emmy award-winning TV show  “Breaking Bad.” In real life, he holds a PhD in chemistry and is a senior scientist in the Nuclear Engineering division at  Argonne National Laboratory. Really!

Special VIP reception: 7:00 – 8:30pm at D.I.R.T.T. Environmental Solutions. Guests will enjoy dinner, open bar and photos with Dr. Stan who will discuss his scientific research and experience on the show “Breaking Bad.” Access to the Cocktail Party following is, of course, included with this ticket. 

Get tickets now HERE.  You will absolutely be talking about this party afterward!


Attire – Cocktail party but weather appropriate.  Meaning, if you want to wear your cute party dress or cool new shirt – fantastic.  But if it’s rainy cold and you can’t imagine changing out of flannel-lined jeans and a wooly sweater, that’s fine with us!  Just no snuggies, please.  Ditch boots at the door – the drinks and conversation will warm you right up!

Parking Discount – A real $4 deal!! We’ve arranged a big discount for the first 100 guests at Mart Parc Wells Self Park garage, 1/2 block north of the building. Enter garage from either Wells Street or Kinzie, take your ticket and park. Bring the ticket to the party and get a discount sticker for it. Use that when you return to the garage to pay and your fee is reduced to $4.00.  No driving around the neighborhood or special reservation required.  Because ISC loves our friends.

Public Transit – Easy!  Event is right across the street from southeast doors of Merchandise Mart.  CTA brown line stops on 2nd level of the Mart.  (Tip – there is no down escalator in the Mart; use stairs next to ATMs outside CTA turnstiles.)  Or, the #156 LaSalle bus stops one block east at 320 LaSalle.  Follow the narrow sidewalk on the north side of the building west toward Wells, then turn left.

This is a 21+ event. Handicap accessible – Yes, DIRTT  and Kimball are accessible.

Printed tickets – Don’t print out tickets; it wastes paper.  Provide your name, and guest name(s), with your ticket purchase and we’ll have a complete list at the door.
