Valentine’s Day is here and as usual, you’ve waited until crunch time to plan anything. You could do the usual dinner, flowers, cheap-teddy-bear-holding-a-heart routine. Or if you’re single, maybe the pint of ice cream and/or case of beer and a date with your couch routine. Or...maybe this year you mix it up with Uncensored: Tennessee Aquarium After Hours event.
On Feb. 13, from 7 to 10 p.m., the Tennessee Aquarium invites you to enjoy “a night of UNCENSORED information.” Curious about the birds and the bees under the sea? Now’s your chance to find out if that turtle is really trying to impress that turtle babe with jazz hands. And just in case you’re too shy to openly admit your curiosity, drinks are available to help lower your inhibitions.
If the above isn’t enough to lure you to the event—and it should be—there will also be a “wacky costume photo booth,” aquarium educator presentations, games with silly prizes, “after-dinner snacks” and of course cocktails (one drink included with each ticket).
In the words of Bloodhound Gang: “You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals. So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.” Enough said.
Must be age 21 or older, valid ID required. $15 for members, $30 for non-members (includes additional pass to return for tour at leisure). Tennessee Aquarium, One Broad St. (800) 262-0695, tnaqua.org.
