They’re quick, they’re clever, they’re masters of disguise and every year public radio program Science Friday dedicates a week to celebrating them. Cephalopod Week, Science Friday’s annual celebration of some of the smartest, most interesting invertebrates on Earth, is back, and Atlas Obscura and Science Friday are teaming up to make it a total cephalo-party!
Join us for an evening of talk, tentacles, and merriment, featuring four original short films from Science Friday at Public Works, never been shown in Chicago before. This evening is your chance to rub elbows with Science Friday Events Manager Rachel Bouton and other local ceph-xperts. Ask them anything you want to know about these amazing, adaptive, and sometimes creepy creatures!
You'll join other Atlas Obscura Society members and Science Friday listeners for this very special screening, sip the specialty cephalopod-themed cocktails, delight in a live performance by vintage-style musician Plucky Rosenthal, and engage in riveting conversation as you enjoy scenes of giant octopus attacks from 1950s cult film.
