The Science of Gingerbread

Discovery Science Center

So you ate all the sugar cookies, the pumpkin pie—you even ate that nasty ol’ fruitcake. December only comes around once a year (as does the excuse to gain the “holiday 10”), so you’ve really got to pack it in while you can—and before those damned gym commercials start popping up in January. “New Year, new you!” Fuck that. If you’re still on the indulgence train to Candyland a few days after Christmas, drop in at the Discovery Science Center to catch the end of their “Science of Gingerbread” exhibit. There are decorating demonstrations, kitchen-science activities and award-winning gingerbread displays. It might be a little stale at this point—but it sure beats hitting the stairclimber.
