Music and Fun at the Center
Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science
Talk about dinner and a show—“Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” is everything you could want in a night out, from spirited songs, multimedia presentations, talk-show antics, and, of course, big and potentially dangerous food demonstrations. Brown’s penchant for mixing science, music, and food is well-known and well-loved, with both fans and critics raving about the interactivity of his shows. Brown promises “plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but this time we’re going to play a little game while we’re at it. Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.” Those in the first few rows might even need protective gear in case things get messy—and they always get messy.

SF Scottish Fiddlers
It’s hard not to do a little jig in your seat when 100 fiddlers backed by piano, drums, cellos, guitars, harps, and flutes start playing. Especially when they start playing with the kind of energy the SF Scottish Fiddlers can pack into every note. This merry band of musicians features master fiddler Alasdair Fraser. Fraser has a humor, passion, and charisma that set a jolly tone that’s simply impossible not to enjoy.
