Way Late Play Date for Adults

Friday, October 14, 2016 @ 5:52 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  It’s a special night at the museum  for those  19  to  30.

Saturday night ( tomorrow), it’s a Way Late Play Date that  will let  the  “older ” set  hang out and  experience  what Exploration Place  has to offer.

“At the height of the Pokemon craze this summer,   I noticed the park was full of   young adults, looking for  Pokémon,  and I thought,  wow,  these  folks  could  really use something to do” says Exploration Place CEO  Tracy Calogheros.

So the wheels were put in motion to develop a night   where  those aged 19 to 30  could  get together .

The  museum staff have been busy coming up with activities for the evening,  and have been developing  a “blue martini” hence the reason  why  participants must be  19 or older.   Snacks will be provided  by the Oak Room Grill and there will be a DJ on site pumping out  the tunes.

The Exploration Place is not the first museum to  offer an evening like this,  Calogheros says Science World has been offering a similar event.   If  the Way Late Play Date  goes over well in Prince George,  she says she hopes to offer the event  every three months.

There is a cost of course,  $20 for advance tickets,  $25 at the door.     No  children allowed. Calogheros laughs  as she explains  why little ones  aren’t invited to this event “There’s no chance of there being a  9 year old  who knows more about  dinosaurs than you  do.”

Doors open at 7 pm.
