To the Editor:

Have you ever eaten dinosaur?

If not you should come to this year’s Darwin Day Dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7 at the Norwalk Inn and Conference Center, 99 East Ave., and try some.

Darwin Day is an international celebration of the life and discoveries of Charles Darwin that brings clever people together to express gratitude for the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity.

Do you know why s/he loves you?

If not, come to this year’s Darwin Day Dinner and ask Yale ornithologist Richard O. Prum. Professor Prum will lecture on “Aesthetic Evolution by Mate Choice:  Darwin’s Really Dangerous Idea” while you and others may be eating a direct descendent of T-Rex.  Then he will answer questions.

Want to know why women are beautiful and what makes a peacock cocky?  Come to the dinner and ask Professor Prum.

The dinner and lecture is $65. Before the dinner there is a cocktail hour and a short, fun science quiz.

For tickets please send a check to the CT Darwin Day Committee, 249 Chestnut Hill Road, Norwalk, CT 06851, along with a note with your name, the names of those your are paying for and their selections of:  Black Angus rib of Beef (B), Chicken Valdostana (C), Crabmeat Stuffed Sole (S), or Eggplant Rollatini (E).

This year’s Darwin Day dinner is sponsored by the Norwalk Public Schools’ Science Department, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, the Bartlett Arboretum, Earthplace, The Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, The Wilton Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), the Unitarian Church in Westport, Humanists and Freethinkers of Fairfield County (HFFC), and the Connecticut Audubon Society.

    I could give a rat’s behind about Charles Darwin, but it seems to be in vogue these days to have a festival about something whether it be about chili, chowder, or chocolates.

    Norwalk should focus on things that make this city different from the rest. How about a Brien McMahon day. I doubt many Norwalk residents, with the exception of his immediate family, have any idea who this guy was or what he did.

    How about a Tony Di Mauro day. He won the Little America’s Cup 4 consecutive times using the world’s first wing sail catamaran which will now be used in the 2017 America’s Cup in Bermuda. Yes, he was my father.

    What about an Oak Hills Day?

    A quote from Ernesto Bertarelli of Team Alinghi during AC 33, “The wing seems to be quite a weapon”.

    It started here in Norwalk CT.
