These fun theme after-hours theme nights are just for the big kids (21+)! We've partnered with 7th Settlement Brewery who will provide a cash bar at every month's event and serve beer, wine and a signature cocktail. We will dish out the fun as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Where else can you and your friends enjoy a cash bar, refreshments and a chance to leave an impression in a giant pin screen, or play a tune on a wall-to-wall Music Matrix?

Big kids only (21+) and you must have a valid ID. Tickets are $10 online until noon the day before the event, then they cost $12 at the door.
