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!
