Have you ever wanted to explore a children’s museum – but without the children? This October, you have the chance! KidsPlay After Dark promises an evening of terrifying threads, creepy cocktails, and plenty of frightening fun!
This adult-only event includes a spooky cocktail making class, costume contest, prizes, music, appetizers by Salt 2.0, and a cash bar! Don’t miss Torrington Collective‘s terrifying eyeball scavenger hunt.
Get decked out in your most terrifying threads (or most dreadful drip) and come down to the Museum to show that adults can play, too!
