Atlas Obscura and Nerd Nite D.C. Present: Chowing Down on Gastro Obscura!

Ring in 2018 with our pals at Nerd Nite D.C. as we get nerdy about the world's most wondrous food and drink.

We're celebrating the recently launched Gastro Obscura, the definitive home for the world's most wondrous food and drinks, by joining with our friends at Nerd Nite D.C. for an evening of bawdy beer, salt shenanigans, and pesky Prohibition!

Ivan Fitzgerald & Monica Grover of Bazaar Spices will give the talk "History Worth Its Salt." The program will also include a presentation by author Garrett Peck on "How Dry We Weren't: Prohibition in the Nation's Capital." Finally, Lost Lagers will look back at the evolution of the D.C. Beer industry in "The Biggest Hidden Industry: D.C. Beer in 1917 vs. 2017."
