Come for the tater tots and the punk rock ambience. Stay for the science, technology, and culture. Or vice versa. On the third Wednesday of each month, Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland opens its doors to a no-cost, free-wheeling program of in-depth conversations with some of the Bay Area’s most creative minds, sponsored by the technology site Ars Technica. Originally hosted at Longitude, the late, lamented tiki bar, the Ars Technica Live recording session and podcast was inaugurated in April 2016.
