SPECIAL EVENT | The Happiest Hour


The Strong National Museum of Play will kick out the kids and open its doors to the 21-and-over crowd on Wednesday evening. The museum will host its second "Happiest Hour" on February 24, 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with a cash bar featuring beers from Roc Brewing, snacks catered by Marshall Street Bar and Grill, and access to the museum, free of younglings. But since it's still the Museum of Play, the idea is to take a fresh look at the exhibits, including the new "Hot Wheels" Race to Win" section. DJ Naps will provide music; there will be karaoke; and the museum has an obstacle course set up where groups can battle each other with foam darts. The Happiest Hour is a fundraiser for The Strong, and is organized by the organizations young professionals group, The Strong Play Makers.

The Happiest Hour takes place, Wednesday, February 24, at The Strong, One Manhattan Square. 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Must be 21 or older. Tickets are $15 and must be purchased in advance at
