Whoever says Tacoma's Center of Urban Waters consists solely of environmental freaks and engineering geeks who hole up inside their kick ass 51,000 square-foot office and laboratory building on Thea Foss Waterway shying from public contact as they play with their test tubes and mentally compute the velocity of their own pee is a big fat liar. Believe it or not, these scientists and engineers adore the public, and will prove it Thursday night when the Pacific Science Center launches the Tacoma version of its awesome Science Café at The Harmon Brewery and Restaurant.

The third monthly science café launched by PSC - Queen Anne hill in Seattle and Kirkland have a hold on the first two - the Tacoma Science Café will kick off its monthly science chat, over beers, with University of Washington Tacoma research scientist Julie Masura, who hangs with the Center of Urban Waters folks after the class bell rings. Masura - huge into microplastics studies - will discuss how these teeny tiny particles are destroying our oceans.

You might want to pull back from your normal beer consumption Thursday, as Masura will also host a Q-and-A session.

Tacoma Science Café

Thursday, Nov. 4, 7 p.m., all ages, no cover
