Raising the Bar: Like a Ted Talk, but with alcohol
It might not be how you normally hit the pub with mates, but it'll guarantee the chat will be better.
Auckland University is bringing back Raising the Bar for its second year running: a worldwide initiative to bring knowledge to the city's nightlife.
Twenty talks from different experts take place across 10 bars on one night - August 28.
Such topics include 'Race and Queerness in Bounce music' at Little Easy on Ponsonby Rd, 'Big Brother is Everywhere' at Snickel Lane on Customs Street or 'Apples, Ancestors and Rock Hard Evidence' at Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen on Sale Street.
