Nerd out at Nerd Nite Detroit Science is way more fun when you get to eat it, which is why Nerd Nite Detroit is hosting its first-ever “food science fair.” Someone will be cooking with liquid nitrogen, someone else will be explaining how beer is made, and you’ll get to eat/drink your nerdy little heart out.
