The Houston Museum of Natural Science's popular "Mixers & Elixirs" has officially been resurrected. Beginning Feb. 13 and continuing once a month until September, kick it with the smart crowd in a fete where witty conversation, fly dance moves and high-intellect mingling runs rampant.
Like gatherings of the past, this festive event includes classic tunes that pack the dance floor, led by Texas musicians. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the party goes until 10 p.m.
Feb. 13 - Mixers Re-launch/Valentine's Day with The Spazmatics
The season begins just in time to celebrate Valentine's Day with other smart hearts. If you're still recovering from the last time the love bug bit you, then head to the Grand Hall, where you can name a roach after an ex and race your roach for fun. Feeling adventurous? Stop by the Bug Chef to nosh on some deliciously prepared arthropods. If eating insects isn't your thing, food trucks will be on site. Options include Good Dog Hot Dog, Bernie's Burger Bus, H-Town StrEATs and others.
