‘Fizzics’ of drinks explored at free UVic event

Stanford University chemist Richard Zare hosts a demonstration show on beverages

Stanford University chemist Richard Zare hosts a demonstration show on beverages – alcoholic, carbonated, or otherwise – at UVic next Tuesday, 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Farquhar Auditorium.

Zare ponders such questions as why James Bond prefers his vodka Martini shaken, not stirred, and fills his lecture with demonstrations on amazing applications for bubbles. Only the brave should sit in the front row.

The lecture is free but contact UVic at 250-721-8480 or tickets.uvic.ca to reserve a seat.
