In what I can only call wild, Liberty Science Center presents its newest nighttime adventure “Dancing with Drones,” kicking off on August 18th and will continue as an ongoing event on the third Thursday of every month.
Think: A 21+ crowd only Cocktails Food Music Entry to ALL general-admission exhibits An all-Prince laser show in the IMAX dome theater Drone races “Dronie” photos More themed activities (surprise!) Dancing (Yes! the only thing I need to hear to go anywhere!)
ALL of the above for $15!
Brought to you by Lynn Hazan, perhaps better known as Chicpea JC, who has enlisted DJ Stadium Status (Transmission, Dullboy, Porta) for beats and Haytham Elgawly (owner of brand Eye Create and The Clearport boutique) as the MC.
Calling all football fanatics who are totally psyched that 2014’s Superbowl will be held at MetLife Stadium:
Liberty Science Center premieres its Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibit this Saturday, September 28th.
The exhibit tells a story of American sports, history and culture through various media. Relics, documents, photos, “rare artifacts,” interactive stations and a special section dedicated to our “Hometown Heroes”—the GIAnts and the Jets.
Jerseys worn by Mean Joe Green, Johnny Unitas, and many others
Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without players. A full roster of former NY Giants and NY Jets will be stopping by to participate in science demonstrations and sports challenges with visitors. Plus, they’ll do a meet and greet afterward.
