Profs. and Pints: Seeking Our Earliest Ancestors at Triple Crossing Fulton
May 17th (TONIGHT), 6 PM, $6-8, Tickets Here

By earliest ancestors, we’re not talking about your great-great-grandpappy who ran a still. We’re talking your grandpappy who ran from critters that wanted to eat him for lunch.

Profs and Pints Richmond presents: “Seeking Our Earliest Ancestors,” with Dr. Amy L. Rector of Virginia Commonwealth University, a paleoanthropologist who has spent more than 20 years investigating human origins on the African continent.

What does it mean to be human? That’s the primary question that drives the research of Professor Amy Rector, a paleoanthropologist and paleoecologist who also serves as director World Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Her quest for knowledge about our earliest ancestors has taken her to the field in Morocco, South Africa, and Ethiopia, and has her in the process of launching a new research project in Zambia. But you don’t have to go any farther than Richmond’s Triple Crossing-Fulton brewpub to learn about her most interesting findings and experiences.

Dr. Rector will discuss how her work involves identifying fossils from 2 to 3 million years ago to reconstruct what the world must have looked like when our ancestors work up in the morning. Using such information, she seeks to piece together the story of how environmental contexts shaped the evolutionary history of our lineage. What was food for such ancestors? As important: What around them considered them food?  The answers to these questions shed light on what traits enabled them to avoid starvation and escape predators long enough to pass on their genes.

She’ll discuss how we identify our ancestors in the fossil record and tell stories of fossil hunting adventures and experiences such as coming face to face with a hyena in the dark. It will be an absolutely fascinating evening, and Triple Crossing’s great beer and pizza will ensure that the environmental context for it is darned good. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, or $13 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)

BEER NEWS

No robot for Richmond yet but maybe someday the future will be here as well.

Three Notch’d Brewing testing robotic food runner – NBC29

“Every table is put into the machine, it’s got a little screen on the back, you just hit the table number, it goes right to the side of the table and parks,” Scott Roth said. “The idea would be that if you’re running short on hosts or on food runners, which a lot of people in our industry are, you might have an opportunity to try to offset some of that with the use of the robot.”
