It's beachy keen…

It’s beachy keen…

Hey-o! This Thursday night (I know, how inconvenient is that?), January 17th 2019, there is a great-big Warren Dunes party happening at the Seattle Aquarium!

According to the Seattle Aquarium:

Adults take over the Seattle Aquarium for this 21+ event featuring animal experiences, music, a cash bar and more.

Shake the winter off at the Aquarium After Hours BEACH PARTY! Dress in your favorite Aloha wear and bask in the indoor sunshine while exploring exhibits and learning more about our Hawaii research.

And here’s more info from Warren Dunes if you can stomach nonstop aquarium-themed puns:

This is your O-FISH-AL invitation to the winter party everyone will be CLAM-oring over this month!

This show will include not one, not two, but THREE sets from yours truly! Your $25 ticket includes the show as well as access to all of the exhibits in the Aquarium!! It promises to be a WHALE of a time!

Also, it just so happens to be Julia’s birthday and all she wants from you is your PRESENCE!!

Details:
After Hours: Beach Party (Get Tickets Here)

@ The Seattle Aquarium
1483 Alaskan Way, Pier 59, Seattle, WA 98101 (map)

If you can swing it, you should bring it!

And by “it” I mean “yourself to the aquarium on Thursday night to hang with Warren Dunes.” Except not the first “it,” that one means “going out on a School night and being able to afford $25 per person.” Yeah!

It’s at the Rosetta Hunter Art Gallery at Seattle Central College! Take a look:
