Culture and Cocktails: Piranesi

Come to the San Diego Museum of Art for music, cocktails, food, and, of course, art! I am attending with SD Thinkers and Revelry Makers, and thought that several people in Active Nerds would like to attend too. :) This event is a blast, and there are usually several meetup groups in attendance. You can buy tickets in advance, or at the door. Bring cash if you want to purchase additional food or drinks. We will meet on the steps in front of the museum at 6pm for about 15 minutes for people to arrive. Hope to see you there!

From the website:
The DJ spins, exotic beverages flow, artworks dazzle, and museum visitors glow at this popular sundown series. Bring a friend, meet someone new, and experience art in a whole new way.

Pre-sale tickets are available until noon the day of the event. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door.

Culture & Cocktails is free for Museum members. Not a member? Join today.

Please note: this is a 21+ event.

Free for Members | $15 nonmembers

    • Michael W.

      Yeah the museum was SERIOUSLY packed tonight. I didn't dare blink 3 times or I would have lost you all..... Oh yeah... that happened too. :< But, I did get a chance to meet some new and very nice people from our group. I look forward to our future meetups!!!

      I concur - Ah-mazing! Thanks to those of you who let me bore you with my feeble attempts at critiquing art! For the rest of you... I'll get you next time.

    Ok you crazy museum partiers, I am heading out. Have a great time. Sorry if I missed some of you. I look forward to seeing all of you at future events. Cheers!

    Sitting and standing at tables out front. Come get wristbands. And I was wrong, they are red, orange and white. :)

    May 30, 2013

    • Kathryn

      Just parked, see you in a bit!

      May 30, 2013

    • Jim M.

      We're heading inside. Christina is wearing a turquoise dress and I am wearing a nice light brown suit. Find us for your wrist, or ear, or belt. Whatever.

    I think it's funny about the green glow bands. You do know it'll still be sunny right? Don't you all study astronomy? :)

    May 30, 2013

    • Jim M.

      They're not green. They're red, white and blue and they are just so we know who is in the group and who's not. :) This is a quasi un-hosted event seeing as we really can't move around the Museum in a group of 40 people. We want everyone to engage each other as much as possible, while enjoying the venue.

      So I feel under-dressed already. :/ Anyhow, where are we all at?

    Anyone know the dress code? We talking pocket protectors or tweet jackets? Don't really want to show in jeans if this is a fancy pants party?

      Now that sounds like an Italian nerd!

      I believe the Google earth satellite, just picked up Jeff's shirt from space.

  • Christina M.

    Our group and SD Thinkers and Revelry Makers will have glow-in-the-dark wristbands. I will hand them out when we meet between 6 and 615 in front of the museum. If you come later, feel free to find someone with a wristband and say hello! :) My phone is[masked] in case you need help finding the museum (although, I did not have very good reception inside the museum).

      There is tons of parking at balboa. You can park at the zoo or near the science center. There really isn't anything else going on at the park that late at night.

      By the way, who is bringing the slide rules and taped glasses? I only have my personal set and a backup, but not enough for everyone.
