Special information from our experts and volunteers about the new African penguins.

I have attended this event before, and it is outstanding and not to be missed!!

You will purchase your own ticket in advance (it always sells out ahead of time and tickets will NOT be sold at the door) and we will meet up just inside the Aquarium for a fun-filled evening browsing the galleries in peaceful, adults-only, booze-allowed style. Tickets are now on sale: $13.25 for Aquarium members, $21 for non-members.

Back by popular demand, this adults-only evening includes special programming and behind-the-scenes tours. 6-10pm.

This is a 19+ event.

    Great fun! Thanks for posting this event, Danielle. It was so refreshing to enjoy the Aquarium without a gazillion screaming kids :)

    I love the aquarium and the bonus - kid free! However, it was not as nice as the evening set up for members only. I think they should provide better food (for one thing) and then charge a bit more. 4 hours was also too long for this girl. However, if you have never done this event, I would say go for next year.

    lots of fun - would be better to go later (7 or 8) - less line ups and less people

    Hi Carla
    I can give you a lift to a Skytrain station. Not a problem.

    June 25, 2012

  • Carla

    Thinking of taking transit down. Not a problem on the way there, but not too thrilled at the thought of being in Stanley Park, alone in the dark, after. Does anyone go near any skytrain station on the way home that I could catch a ride to? Thanks :)

    Marie and Jan, that's great! Yes I do remember you Jan! (and your lovely shoes and fascinator!) Looking forward to seeing you both there!

    June 14, 2012

  • Marie

    Look forward to seeing you. Perhaps we can make red our official colour for meeting at large events!

    June 13, 2012

  • Jan

    Hi Nora and Marie, I will be there for 6:00PM as well. I'll find something red to wear and will meet both of you at the door. Nora, you and I sat together for the Audrey Hepburn movie, so I hope you remember me!

    June 13, 2012

  • Marie

    That's great Nora. Not sure what I'll wear but probably some type of red top and I'll be waiting at the entrance. Look forward to seeing you!

    June 13, 2012

  • Nora

    Hi Marie, I plan to be there shortly after 6 also (you're right about better parking!) and I think I'll wear something red (my ankle length jeans) with dressy sandals, so how about you?

    June 12, 2012

  • Marie

    I plan to be there around 6:00 pm (better parking). If anyone is thinking of being there at the same time, we could perhaps meet at the front and wear a certain colour so we know who we are (e.g. red).??

  • Danielle B.

    Ok I will send out an email when I know my arrival time, so we can coordinate that (if people want to go in earlier, that is fine with me - I can come in and find the group).

    June 10, 2012

  • Jan

    Okay. If any attending are planning to be there before 7:00PM then I'd be happy to meet you outside the main entrance to the Aquarium. Otherwise, I'm good with getting there closer to 7:00PM.
    Thanks Danielle. See you then.

    Cocktail attire is a great idea, Jan - I'll do that too, but the event will have a mix from jeans to cocktail so people should feel free to wear whatever. I don't have my work schedule for that day yet, so I can't say when I will be getting there, but it will be no later than 7pm.

    June 10, 2012

  • Jan

    Danielle - what time are we meeting? Is this cocktail attire? I'm assuming so. However, I will forego my fascinator this time :)

    June 10, 2012

  • daniella

    Okay I'm going to try and buy ticket

    June 9, 2012

  • Danielle B.

    @Danielle - four people have indicated that they bought their tickets, so that means at least 4 people will be attending with the group. Usually about half the people who RSVP to a meetup event actually show up for the event, but since this one will sell out ahead of time, some people will simply not get their tickets in time and so actual attendance will be even lower than usual.

    June 9, 2012

  • Danielle B.

    Hi Danielle - the event is happening on Wed June 27th so that is when you may attend. More information is available in the event description, and you may also check the Aquarium's web site for further information.

    June 9, 2012

  • Danielle B.

    Hi Azzah, when you attend an event with this group, we generally all meet together and spend the time together. Most members attend on their own, though (female) guests are welcome for this event. Look forward to seeing you there!
    P.S. thanks Jan!

    June 9, 2012

  • Jan

    Hi Azzah
    I'm sure there will be lots of ladies coming on their own but we are very welcoming group. If you like I can meet you at the entrance and introduce you to some of this great group.

    June 8, 2012

  • Azzah

    Is anyone going on their own to this event? It's my first time and I'm coming on my own but a bit nervous about it! haha

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
