The LaB 5555 launch had a serious bite: Read patron reactions and add your own!

June 26, 2012

LaB 5555 launched Friday with the help of some 700 patrons who gathered to geek responsibly and boogie among bones for a paleontological party dubbed “Skin & Bones.” Each LaB 5555, held monthly from here on out, will feature a scientific theme with one hour of educational pre-party time, live music, local food truck fare, cash bars and more. For a full schedule, click here.

Don’t call it a comeback! Feel the love for LaB 5555

We’ve revamped our after-hours, adults-only geek chic event and re-dubbed it LaB 5555. This new monthly mixer boasts scientific themes, great live music and noms from Houston’s best food trucks. Geek responsibly with us at LaB 5555!
