Adult Swim: Steampunk 2.0
Friday, March 1, 6-10 p.m.
It’s full steam ahead for our second annual Steampunk Adult Swim! Polish your goggles and wax that mustache, and join us for a night of grownup fun. Play Victorian parlor games, join the fashion-invention showcase, and have your cards read in our rooftop Tea Room.
No, we don’t have a swimming pool, but we honor the time-honored “adult swim” tradition at public pools as we kick the kids out so adults can have the museum to themselves. It’s a great event to attend as an alternative holiday party for small businesses, or with friends or family! Beer, cider, and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Climb the Hodgepodge Mahal, drive the Punch Buggy, and take in the work of more than 120 local artists who contributed pieces to the new museum!
This edition of Adult Swim is welcomed by WORT 89.9 FM.
