The Mind Science Foundation, whose name I initially misread as “Mad Science Foundation” and was eager to join, held its latest Night of Mystery Gala this past February 28th to carry on the legacy of founder and Badass Hall of Fame alumnus Tom Slick. In honor of the great cryptozoologist, guests at the Argyle Club took part in a treasure hunt, did some brain mapping, searched for the Yeti as Slick famously did in the snowy reaches of Nepal, and more.

Because you don’t celebrate someone like Tom Slick by just sitting there and drinking.

On the side of things that didn’t involve colossal ape-men or the furious pursuit of legends, pianist Monica Moore provided the musical backdrop as participants enjoyed a raffle and the Argyle’s world-class food under candlelight. They even got the opportunity to purchase an Escape Room experience, which is very useful for those without the travel budget or top speed to escape an enraged cryptid in the wild.

Despite the fantastical nature of its progenitor, the Mind Science Foundation does incredible work supporting research into consciousness and neurology. Their speaker series includes an upcoming talk with Jaron Lanier, the “founding father” of virtual reality, and a discussion with Dr. Abigail Baird on teenage brain development. They’re here to carry us into tomorrow, but they’re not afraid to have fun doing it.
