There are several very interesting and very popular programs devoted to "science entertainment" in the New York area. (NOTE: THESE PROGRAMS ARE OFTEN OVER-SUBSCRIBED. IT'S BEST TO MAKE A RESERVATION EARLY AND ARRIVE EARLY!)
The CUNY Graduate center program (led by Dr. Brian Schwartz and Adrienne Klein) includes robots dancing and a look at the history and craft of the Stradivarius violin.
At the Cornelia Street Cafe, Nobel Laureate (chemistry) Roald Hoffman's program includes a look at Darwin, with guest Jonathon Weiner, author of The Beak of the Finch (a great book about a research program observing evolution occuring in "real time" in birds at the Galapagos Islands),
