Are you a fan of The Tonight Show? John Stewart? Samuel Barber? Are you contemplating the obliteration of life on this planet? Then you're probably a coastal, science loving, effete cultural elitist, AKA the target audience for Nukes @ Night with Ramon.

Smooth comedian, and peerless emcee, the inimitable Ramon Rivas and big brain, posh nuclear physicist Dr. William Fickinger discuss the possibility of nuclear annihilation of the human race. Musicians from the Cleveland

Urban Sketchers at MOCA Cleveland 4.26, 2PM

Join Maureen Ryan and the Cleveland Urban Sketchers for their monthly sketch outing at MOCA Cleveland. The weather may be chilly but mild, so it is sketcher's choice to sketch outside or inside. If you do decide to sketch inside MOCA, please be prepared to pay the admission fee. Sketchers of all levels are more than welcomed to join this event. Be prepared with pencils for inside the museum as museums usually frown on ink and charcoal due to the possibilities of a mess or even worse, damage to artwork. There is ample paid parking in the surrounding university and museum parking structures as well as limited street parking. It is easily accessible by the Healthline and the rapid line. Meet at the exterior of the building at the rear entrance (not facing Mayfield Rd/Euclid Ave).

In honor of Earth Day this year, Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance will be screening the groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary, COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret. The film follows an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today—and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact that animal agriculture has on our planet.

"Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the planet." ~ Louie Psihoyos, Oscar-Winning Director of "The Cove"
