Every month or so, the science community in New York City gathers to talk science over beer. The event—or TweetUp if you will—began as a means of connecting the online science community offline, which is why it bears a hashtag in its name. While the gathering is still in its infancy, turnouts have been fairly moderate—and certainly enthusiastic.

The next one is scheduled for August 9th--the location has yet to be determined but you can follow along through one of these channels learn more:

If you're in town, please stop in—it's a very low-key and open affair. If you are a science/health/environmental writer, journalist, blogger, tweeter, teacher, student, researcher, communicator, observer, or fan come on by.

Update: The Tweetup will be at the Peculier Pub located at 145 Bleeker St, New York, NY 10012.
