Last Minute Plans: Adler After Dark

adlerafterdark.gifWhile not quite a "Night at the Museum" dose of zaniness, an evening at Adler Planetarium for their monthly Adler After Dark event should prove to be an interesting night. If not for the chance to gaze through the Doane Observatory telescope - the largest public telescope in the Midwest - catch a space show narrated by Robert Redford, or learn more about the Big Bang theory, then surely for the great tunes promised by DJs Olin and Warp on behalf of the Chicago Electronic Music and Arts Coalition. Only going from 6-10pm this Thursday the 17th, consider this an early start to your weekend, and it's an excellent date idea if you're into hugely nerdy things like we are. Olin and Warp are planning to bring a bit of forward-thinking electronic music to one of Chicago's oldest landmarks, and there will be plenty of cocktails and appetizers, even a photo booth! Advance tickets may be purchased online here for $10 non-members and $7 members. On-site tickets are $15 for non-members and $10 for members. Check out the Facebook event and past event info at the Adler After Dark page.

(Full disclosure: I'm a member of CEMAC, the Chicago Electronic Music and Arts Coalition.)
