Continuing my recap of fun activities during my blogging hiatus, a nod to a fabulous evening at the American Swedish Institute is in order. The ASI is a cultural center and museum that hosts a variety of events within its mansion-like walls. Sure, you could probably have a wedding here, but I went for a Halloween bash called ‘Cocktails at the Castle.’ This was ADULTS ONLY.
Don’t worry, it wasn’t too explicit. That was just the rule for buying tickets. 🙂
I biked to the institute since exercise is good and my date was a biker chick:
Biking to the event earned us a cool stamp and $1 off drinks!
We discovered music and masks and acrobats and a photo booth!
I would definitely go to Cocktails at the Castle again – if for no other reason than to check out the costumes. The event had a few more activities as well (palm reader and ‘write your own obituary,’ for example), but we opted out of these activities due either to the long lines or morbid undertones.
