It’s a rock-n-rolling weekend with The Chromatics

sonia-and-ballet-2This Friday, we are partying like its 1989 as The Chromatics put on a show full of pure energy that will keep you on the dance floor under the dinosaurs all night long. This totally awesome band is known as the 80s super-group of the 21st century.

 

Don’t let another Friday night bite the dust without you here at Mixers. Find yourself walking on sunshine while enjoying our cash bars and Audi Lounge, which open at 6 p.m. The totally righteous performance begins at 7 p.m. at the smartest scene in town.

Although Mixers, Elixirs, & IMAX is coming to a close for 2008 it doesn’t mean we’ll stop partying! Seriously, it’s only September. I know it’s kind of crazy to be talking about Halloween, but I know the “What costume am I going to wear for Halloween this year?” conversation is already happening in the back of your head. And it should be!

Join HMNS on All Hallows Eve for the only party in Houston happening in a dinosaur graveyard. We’re going to give you so much more than atmosphere, though. We’ll have The Chromatics pumping out 80s hits all night, world-renowned illusionist Steven Wallach, Fatima and her team of psychics, Bug Chef David Temple, Etoile Arabesque Belly Dance Troupe, hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and IMAX films. As tradition would have it, we’re going to be having a costume contest as well – so dream up your best outfit for your chance to win our huge grand prize! Don’t miss Spirits & Skeletons, on October 31 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at HMNS!

And, don’t forget that Mixers goes out with a bang tomorrow night, with Grupo Ka-Che – it’s always our biggest party (1,700 last year!) and we’d love to see you there. We’d also love to see your feedback – let us know what you think – and how we can make Mixers even better next year.
