Tales of the hoax & the hustler, clever con men & daring pigeon drops, rackets, ropers & marks made of money.

Expert talks on odd topics; odd talks on everything else. Odd Salon is a series of cocktail hour lectures, featuring short talks illuminating extraordinary and unusual chapters from history, science, art, and adventure. We invite experts and amateurs alike to have a drink with us and share inspiring and strange tales so we can all learn something new -- from legends of lost cities to masters of art forgery, engineering failures to murderous sideshow performers, daring heists, questionable taxidermy, and tales of epic revenge. Twice monthly at DNA Lounge!
