Mixers remixed: Introducing LaB 5555, our new after-hours, adults-only scientific shindig

Missing Mixers & Elixirs? Well, we’ve given it a makeover. It’s gotten in shape, revamped its wardrobe, learned to two-step and is a brand new event: LaB 5555.

Our new after-hours, adults-only scientific shindig launches this Friday and we want you there geeking responsibly right along with us.

LaB 5555 will have the same cash bars and awesome live entertainment as Mixers did, but it’s committed to bringing you scintillating science, food truck fare and local entertainment all year long. Each month is centered around a scientific theme, with the launch being all about Skin & Bones. Attendees will hear about the highlights of our new Hall of Paleontology in the Grand Hall and have access to tour the new paleo exhibit throughout the night.

Highlights include classy yet sassy music by string quartet/DJ ensemble Collide; food from It’s a Wrap, Big Happy’s Ice Cream & Treats, Pi Pizza and Luchi & Joey’s; cash bars and a sweet giveaway for the first 200 smarty pants to show up.

And you’ll want to get here early. Get your learn on in the Grand Hall from 8 to 9 p.m. before you get your drink on and hear straight from our staff about the skin and bones in our new paleontology hall that have everyone talking.
