Tonight we went to Night Life at the Academy of Sciences. It occurs every Thursday evening, with djs, bars and half price admission. Quite a different crowd from the elementary school field trip crowd the museum sees during the day.
The aquarium was outstanding. Several displays of jelly fish, tropical fish, and a tidal pool where you could handle starfish, sea urchins, and anemone. The best exhibit, however, was the patrons. It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a social situation where the clientele were so varied. There were people of all ages, seemingly from all walks of life. At one point, we sat on a bench and observed the people. That in itself was worth the $12 admission.
