The Dionysium: Bugs
For this latest convocation of wine-fueled intellectual hijinks, LB Deyo and Buzz Moran have called upon your own Chronicle Arts Listings editor Brenner as curator, and he's wrangled up a small crowd of brilliants vis-a-vis all things arthropodish. UT's entomology honcho Alex Wild will present a gallery of his award-winning photographs, featuring a variety of ant species; Konrad Bouffard of Round Rock Honey is gonna tell us about the trials and triumphs of running his big bee-based business; and the NanoNaturalist Alysa Joaquin will show us how you raise moths all the way from tiny eggs to winged wonders. (And Brenner will maybe freak you out with a story about cockroaches.) Plus, a debate: "Resolved: It’s a Good Idea to Eradicate Every Goddamn Mosquito on the Planet." And, of course, Lance "Fever" Myers brings the cartoon animation, the usual badinage and toasts to creativity ripple throughout the show, and it's all abetted by the mighty keyboard calisthenics of that Graham Reynolds.
Past date: Wed., Feb. 6, 7pm
