The past few times I've been to The Rochester Museum & Science Center (657 East Ave.), I've been in the manic company of nieces and nephews, pulled from what has caught my focus to engage with the little ones and what has captured their attention. The 21-and-over crowd will reclaim the museum on Friday, October 18, when RMSC will host a new event called RMSC After Dark, which is intended to be the first of many held throughout the year. The museum's recent 1920's-themed event, "Repeal!," was so successful that organizers decided to create an RMSC After Dark brand.
The science-fiction-themed event will be held 7-11 p.m. and include a "singing" Tesla coil lightning show in Electricity Theater, exhibits of wacky inventions from the RMSC collections, "alien-themed" food and out-of-this-world specialty drinks at a cash bar, access to the traveling exhibition, "Alien Worlds and Androids," futuristic electro-dance music by GLITTERCVLT, sci-fi trivia, and classic sci-fi movies.
Come dressed in your favorite sci-fi costume and participate in a contest for a chance to win prizes. Admission to the event is $15 for the general public or $12 for RMSC members, and tickets can be purchased at the RMSC Welcome Desk or by calling 697-1942 (use code #A676). Registration is encouraged. Visit rmsc.org more information.
