RICHMOND—On Thursday, February 13, from 6pm to 10pm, the folks at the California Academy of Science are celebrating all the ways that romance and passion intersect with science at their weekly NightLife event. There will be discussions on the science of cravings (from quirky to taboo), Motown music, Valentine making, vibrator making (yep), a beer garden, and so much more. Learn all the evening has to offer here and buy tickets here or at the door for $12. [Racked Inbox]
