The cold, damp weather of the past few weeks has us all dreaming of the balmier days ahead. This week you can enjoy the tropics, or at least some tropical-themed crafts and activities, at the next Happiest Hour event at The Strong. The series features adults-only after-work events for unwinding with food, drinks, music, and dancing. This time Salena's Mexican Restaurant will provide bar-style snacks and Roc Brewing Co. will be featured at the cash bar. Dance party tunes will be provided by DJ Naps, and visitors get discounted admission to the butterfly house. Proceeds support The Strong's educational mission and community outreach programs.
Thursday, April 11, 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. The Strong, One Manhattan Square. $15; $12 for museum members; $150 for VIP packages. Must be purchased in advance, 21+. museumofplay.org/happiest-hour.
