I love museums. I love food. I love drinks.
So I’m uber excited about the Mixology: Combine Science with Celebration event at Discovery Place on Thursday, May 10th, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. (There’s an after party at Rock Bottom until 11. Don’t tell anyone I told you.)
If you grew up going to Discovery Place like I did, going to a grown up party there featuring some of Charlotte’s top chefs, explosive entertainment and fancy cocktails pretty much sounds like the best day ever.
Even if you didn’t spend many a childhood field trip harassing sea urchins and starfish in the aquarium, shirt sleeves soaked even though you rolled them way up above your elbows, you will love this soiree. I’ve been promised ample liquid nitrogen and whipped cream play, chocolate covered bugs, slime and oobleck, and the opportunity to set fire to ice.
My plan is to hang out by the silent auction items, pushing up the bids on a trip to the Biltmore House & Winery, signed copies of Dear John and The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, and $1,000 in USAirways plane tickets until the very last minute. Then I’m going to goad some rich friends into making the final generous bid. I’m quite persuasive when I’m holding sea urchins.
Featured chefs include Heather McDonnell, winner of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and owner of Cupcrazed; Charlotte Magazine‘s Restaurarteur of the Year, Chef Cassie Parsons of Harvest Moon Grille, and Chef David Quintana of Kobe’s Kreations, who cooks with liquid nitrogen.
Tickets are $30 for one and $50 for two (use coupon code TwoFor50) and can be purchased here. If you would like the chance to join me in science museum geeky goodness revelry for free, Discovery Place and Southern Spark are giving away a pair of tickets.
