When your underwire is pinching, Dothraki hasn’t made it to Duolingo, and reality is getting a little too actual: Don’t despair! Tikh hazze akka tikh square! Guest MC Kishore Hari–director of the Bay Area Science Festival and 3-time NNSF alumnus/pinch-hitter–will preside over a night of untold wonders, unfettered beer taps, undaunted disc jockeyism, and unusually delicious grub.
