Science with a Twist

A soiree on the science of sex

You wouldn’t normally associate the Pacific Science Center with aphrodisiacs, would you? “Sultry Science,” this month’s twisted science lesson at the PSC, explores the physiological facts behind attraction, giving you a chance to flirt over drinks, learn a little, and undo your innocent childhood experiences romping around the giant dinosaurs. Try PSC’s signature “Love Potion No. 9” cocktail or sample aphrodisiac-inspired snacks like truffled twice-baked potatoes, find out what your lips say (when they’re not yapping) by a professional “lipsologist,” or listen to a lecture on the evolution of the human pair-bond. Then cap the evening with a laser show set to the music of KISS. The Center’s monthly “Science with a Twist” program (every third Thursday) gives 21-and-overs an excuse to mingle and learn in an atmosphere their mothers would approve of. Admission includes snacks and your first drink at the bar. Pacific Science Center, Seattle Center, 443-3611, www.pacsci.org. $12-$15. 6 p.m. IRFAN SHARIFF
