Science World After-Dark (Evi’s Pick)
Feb 15 | 7-10pm | Science World | $25
I always have a hard time leaving Science World when I go and this Friday I won’t have to because the doors are open after hours for “adult” evenings. Leave the kids at home and come play with other big kids to compete in a KEVA plank building challenge and discover the new feature exhibition, Creativity in Motion: Springs, Sprockets and Pulleys. Great for singles, couples and groups of friends, you don't want to miss this evening of fun!!!! Yipyip :)
Late Nite Art 19 @ The Hive (Evi’s Pick)
Feb 16 7:30pm The Hive $30/ $20 members
Late Nite Art is an evening of collaborative art, ambient music, to-die-for food and insightful discussion. In a few words, it's a social art experience. It is an open platform for all non-artists and artists alike to come together and work in free form. You don’t need to be able to colour within the lines or draw portraits of fruit bowls – you just need your eyes, ears, and an open mind. Come mingle with new and old friends, treat your taste buds to some delectable eats and drinks and participate in an insightful discussion on what it means to create in collaboration.
