black holes and gray matter. in one thousand tangos.

             

The Interval’s library is intended to contain every book needed to restart the world post-apocalypse.

Since merriment sometimes just isn’t enough, the Interval, a Mensa-courting bar that opens this month in the Fort Mason Center, also offers a library stacked with 1,000 literary masterworks and reference books, an ambient soundtrack created by Brian Eno and, later this year, two robots: One will make drinks, while the other will write predictions about the future on the space’s massive chalkboard. Conceived by the San Francisco-based collective the Long Now Foundation — whose board of directors includes Eno and the Whole Earth Catalog creator Stewart Brand — the Interval will also host regular salons for cerebral scenesters.”
