2014 off the cuff “dance parties”

Last June, I wrote about a handful of museum parties with 2013 dates.  This is my updated 2014 version!

Not exactly a museum but I recently came across all of the wonderful events at the NY Botanical Garden  including BBQ and Beer, Mother’s Day of of course ideas to having a wondering picnic.

The American Museum of Natural History continues to host their One Step Beyond parties with their next party May 16th.  This AMNH party is a ticketed event ($25 in advance; $30 at the door) beginning at 9pm.  2 DJ sets bring you hot music to dance to while drinking under the stars and exhibits in the Rose Center for Earth and Space.

Other Friday night options include K2 Friday Nights in the K2 Lounge of the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea. The Cafe Serai just inside the front door offers a special Pan Asian tapas menu to accompany that evening’s DJ or unique thematic gallery tours or programs chosen for that week. There is a happy hour from 6:00 – 7:00 pm with a 2-for-1 special on all beer, wine and well drinks.  Be sure to check the calendar for each weeks schedule.

Target First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum is exactly that. The first Saturday of every month, the Brooklyn Museum opens its doors to free programs of art and entertainment from 5 to 11 p.m. All evening long, the Museum Café serves a wide selection of food and beverages and there is a cash bar that offers wine and beer.  Note that this is a ticketed (albeit $0 value) event as there is a maximum capacity allowed into the museum and lines begin to form at 4:30. For each month’s programs and events be sure to check the museums calendar….

And well it isn’t a museum, Brooklyn Bridge Park is for a sure a public space offering culture. Celebrate Brooklyn! is again hosting its Bridge Dance Party series on Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1.  This a free outdoor series from 7-10pm with food trucks and DJ’s.  It’s kickoff concert artist this year is Janelle Monae held at the Prospect Park Bandshell.
