Holiday Dinner with Science Comedian Brian Malow

  • Wednesday, December 16, 2009
  • The New Delhi Restaurant
Join us at the New Delhi restaurant in downtown San Francisco and prepare to have your funny bone tickled.  At NCSWA’s holiday dinner, we’ll be entertained by “the Science Comedian” Brian Malow, who has brought his stand-up routine to CBS, Tech TV, Discovery and A&E.  Malow also appears in night clubs but particularly enjoys an audience that is science-savvy because “I can really geek out and give them obscure references,” he told the Washington Post in April 2008.

Join us for Malow’s performance and to meet your national colleagues. As we do every year, we've timed the party to coincide with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting, just a few blocks away in downtown SF. A couple dozen friendly writers and editors covering AGU from out of town will join us for a cosmopolitan evening of mingling.

Of course, festivities will include NCSWA’s own annual science trivia contest with door prizes. Amaze your peers with your deep grasp of useless minutiae that may or may not have anything to do with AGU..

Named “one of the finest Indian Restaurants in the United States ” by the New York Times and featured on the Galloping Gourmet TV Show, the New Delhi has been the Indian restaurant of choice for celebrity chefs such as Julia Child and Paul Prodhome, as well as politicians such as Bill Clinton and Willie Brown. Decorated like a Maharajah's ornate banquet room, the restaurant serves food that has earned numerous awards and gold medals for its excellence. Hors d’Oeuvres served during the Happy Hour will include Bari Pakora and Samosas (vegetable fritters and turnovers filled with lightly spiced potatoes) Hariyali Tikka (chicken barbecued in a tangy mint and cilantro marinade)and Seekh Keebab (spiced lamb rolls prepared over a charcoal fire served with Mint and Tamarind Chutney).
