Nerd Night is a new informal gathering of the minds, where people drink while listening and learning from scheduled speakers. Love their slogan “Be there and be square.” Tonight’s presentations are: The not-so ancient art of Karaoke, Imaging the Total Synthesis of Diurea and Jim Henson, The Great Muppet Capo. 7:30 pm at the Air Conditioned Supper Club in Venice. Cover charge: $10 at the door.


There’s been some controversy brewing on where mobile food trucks can operate (hello, Miracle MIle!) KPCC’s AirTalk hosts a debate on how LA’s food trucks should operate with Larry Mantle, Councilman Tom LaBonge and guests. It’s an important discussion because the issue will be brought up before the City Council later this month. Trucks @GrlldCheeseTruk, @BorderGrill, @KabobnRoll, @ThePlaceLA will be serving food before the discussion. At KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena. Admission to the event is free, but regular prices apply for food. (KPCC will provide free dessert and coffee at the end of the night.) Eat from 4-6 pm, and the discussion begins at 6:30.
