Cuffing season is in full swing, and some couples seem doomed since their first pairing. But sometimes the gravitational pull is hard to resist, and can cause sparks to fly! Join us for our first Astronomy on Tap event of 2023, where we will hear about some of the most dramatic cosmic couples to exist, compact binary mergers!

Is "hate-watching" toxic relationships not your thing? We’ll also learn about the recent discovery of the ultra close, ultra cool, ultra cute binary of brown dwarf stars, fated to be mated for their many billion year lifetime!

El Zorro tacos will be serving their delicious Mexican fare, so come hungry!
