New RMSC After Dark: Sci-Fi Adult Event at Rochester Museum & Science Center
ROCHESTER, NY—The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) connects with the 21-and-older crowd via a new event called RMSC After Dark. With a Sci-Fi theme, the upcoming event is from 7pm to 11pm on Friday, October 18. RMSC After Dark events will take place several times throughout the year.
"Our recent 1920s-themed event, Repeal!, was so successful that we decided to create an RMSC After Dark brand and host several themed adult events throughout the year," said Joelle Adolfi, program supervisor, RMSC. "We design activities based on the science and history associated with the event's theme. We are glad to expose all members of our community to the fun of science and innovation."
At RMSC After Dark: Sci-Fi, attendees experience all three floors of the Museum in an ethereal light while enjoying various out-of-this-world activities. During the evening of science fiction and fantasy, attendees will:

Sip out-of-this-world specialty drinks at a cash bar.
