Café KITPCafé KITP is an evening event held at SOhO Restaurant (1221 State Street) every two months or so. It is a "physics café" which starts with a presentation by a speaker (a physicist) and is followed by questions and provocations facilitated by an interlocutor who inspires the audience to engage with the subject and the speaker. Food and drink are available and there is no cover charge.

Our motto: "Eat, THINK, and be merry!"
