Into the Nightlife

***Last chance to enter The Natural Dentist Giveaway! Contest closes at 12pm PST tomorrow!***

I just got home from Nightlife at the Cal Academy of Sciences. It was awesome! Every Thursday night, it’s only $10 to get into the museum, and they have DJs and a full bar. We had a great time! Hello, they played Britney and had compostable cups! Ok, real glasses would have been better, but I’ll take it. And I love when they label the cans “Recycling,” “Compost” and “Landfill.” Really makes you think! With the DJs, mood lighting and dressed-up crowd, I sort of felt like I was in a Kate Hudson movie! The crowd was a lot of fun – for some reason there was a lot of breakdancing going on. Heh. We even got a “backstage” tour from my friend who interns in a lab there!

The museum is really neat – lots of green practices, especially the living roof! We got to see a rain forest with tons of butterflies, a swamp (with an albino alligator!), a planetarium show about life on other planets (I kept thinking My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas – who remembers that??), a really cool aquarium, a fun bug-catching video game, etc. I really recommend this event to anyone who lives in or visits the Bay Area. I believe it runs through October.

Crazy, huh?

Do you have any cool events like this in your city?
