Reminding adults that they still need to take a break and play some games every once in a while, The Strong National Museum of Play will host an adult after-hours event, The Happiest Hour, on Wednesday, August 26. At 5:30 p.m., the museum will turn into a 21 and older venue so that adults can explore the museum in a new way. Marshall Street Bar and Grill will provide food, and a cash bar will offer beers from Roc Brewing Co. Attendees will be able to play carnival games and classic arcade games, like "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back," in the Boardwalk Arcade exhibit; or head to the second floor for "Pac-Man" and "Street Fighter." Also, the Rochester Fencing Club will give demonstrations, and the Rochester Foam Dart League will have a target shooting challenge.
The Strong Museum's Happiest Hour will take place Wednesday, August 26, at One Manhattan Square. 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Five game tokens are included with admission. Ages 21 and older only. Bar is cash only. For more information, visit museumofplay.org.
