Nerd Nite Los Angeles 

When: Wed., Aug. 27, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
This isn't your high school chemistry class. Nerd Nite, which hosts events in cities from Vancouver to Auckland, eschews the bunsen burners for beer in a night of short lectures on topics designed to pique your scientific curiosity. This month, there will be no napping on the desk or staring out the window when Nerd Nite Los Angeles brings together talks on airborne beasts, space exploration and sex. USC's Dr. Michael Habib will discuss long-gone winged reptiles known as pterosaurs. Brent Sherwood, a "space architect" from JPL, will tackle the political and practical as he explores how space flight can improve Earth. Meanwhile, Nicole Prause, from UCLA's Sexual Psychophysiology and Affective Neuroscience Lab, will lecture on how brain stimulation affects sex drives and what that means for the future. Last month's edition of Nerd Nite sold out, so don't wait to get your tickets. The Mint, 6010 W. Pico Blvd., Mid-City; Wed., Aug. 27, 7:30 p.m.; $10.,
