Night at the Museum

Hi lovelies! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! As usual, it was over way too soon! I’ve been sick for the past couple of days and am working on recouping but am starting to finally feel better! I feel like everyone is sick lately, so make sure to take extra good care of yourselves!

One of the things that I love about San Francisco is that there is always something fun and different going on. A few weeks ago, I went with my sorority’s alumni group to Night Life at the CA Academy of Science. Every Thursday night the museum opens to visitors 21+ for a fun night full of cocktails, music and oh yeah, science. Being that Halloween was just around the corner, we met up for Zombie Nightlife, that had lots of haunted touches and ended the night with a Zombie Drag show.

The girls in the very humid Amazon rainforest

What I didn’t realize about the night, was how much I would enjoy looking around the exhibits and seeing the different animals. The four-story rainforest was incredible and you really feel at times like you part of the jungle as birds and butterflies are circling around you. Then, you ride a glass elevator into the “flooded rainforest” and walk under the fish swimming overhead.

Another highlight was seeing Claude, a very rare Albino Alligator.

Claude was having a "rest day"

The event was super fun and there was stuff to do at every turn… you could visit the rainforest, see some penguins or walk through an impressive aquarium. And for the special zombie night, you could touch a real human brain (I freaked out and couldn’t do it), get Zombie make-up done or watch the Zombie drag show. All in all, it was an amazing night with some lovely ladies and I can’t wait to go back for another Night Life soon!

Questions:

-Do you like museums?

-What would you like to see at a science museum?

-Would you have touched the brain?

  1. Haha WHAT!? A real human brain on display? Honestly, I’d like to say that I would touch it but when it really boils down to it I’m not sure that I would. Yuck

  2. oh my gosh this is awesome… I’m weirdly obsessed with science museums. and with cocktails? even better! I’ve actually held a human brain before.. I love neuro so it was actually really helpful to see all the things i’m learning right in front of me 🙂

  3. What a fun idea! And definitely a perfect pre-Halloween activity. I love museums that allow you to interact with the exhibits, so yes, I would have touched the brain! Or at least I like to think I would have. I’m much braver in my head than I actually am! 😉

    I’m so bummed that our meet-up didn’t work this weekend. I hope everything is okay with your family. You’re in my thoughts and prayers! ❤ xoxoxo
