What do you get when you cross Jurassic Park with drinks at a bar? Unfortunately not a drunk dinosaur â€“ as cool as that would be. What do you get when you fill a museum with live music, retro games, karaoke, alcohol and food? A fantastical Tuesday night out is what. This is Jurassic Lounge, the after-hours event breathing life into The Australian Museum after dark. So leave your Faber-Castellâ€™s by the monkey bars â€“ thereâ€™s too much to see and do. Sip on a cider while reading about a dinosaur affectionately known as Eric to Museum staff. Marvel at a shoulder blade fossil, transformed into opal after millions of years. Or bust a move at the silent disco and flex your wild dating skills to find love. You might even meet a guy who makes robots for a living and has been to every single Jurassic Lounge night this winter.Â Whatever (or whom ever) you end up discovering, Jurassic Lounge sure beats the â€˜Tight Tuesdayâ€™ queue at the cinema.
If you havenâ€™t already checked it out tomorrow night is your last chance to get some J-Lounge action this year â€“ snap to it and pre-purchase your tickets here before 3pm tomorrow afternoon.
