    Grown-ups Only at Children’s Museum 21+ Paint Night
    Dover, NH (February 10, 2018)  No kids allowed! Grown-ups are invited to explore the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire when all little girls and boys are fast asleep in their beds. The museum’s Throwback Thursday: Grown-up Play Dates happen just once a month and offer up grown-up fun, and beverages, in a funky and unique environment.
    February’s theme is “Paint Night: Messy Mayhem” and happens on Thursday, February 15th, 7-9pm, the day after Valentine’s Day. “And you don’t need reservations to get into our Play Dates,” laughs Neva Cole, CMNH Communications Director. Local artist Barbara Albert will be on hand with an array of art supplies to help visitors make their own abstract art masterpiece. “The art will all be unique. No two pieces will be the same,” said Cole. But don’t be intimidated. “Barbara will be on hand to help anyone who might be feeling a little shy about diving in without a little guidance.”
    These Grown-up Play Dates have been happening at the museum once every month since October and have drawn rave reviews from attendees. “We’ve had a Halloween party, yoga night, and an engineering theme, and we have a hard time closing up shop at the end of each evening. People are always excited to explore this unique space,” said Cole.
    The museum’s neighbors, 7th Settlement Brewery, offer up a cash bar each month, even creating a signature cocktail for the occasion. This month’s cocktail is made of pineapple and rum and has been dubbed “Number 1A”, after a Jackson Pollock painting. A “Design-Your-Own Snack Mix” bar will also be set up, along with non-alcoholic beverages. A scavenger hunt, games of Pictionary and Telestrations, and coaster making will also be happening throughout the evening.
    The Grown-up Play Dates are part of a monthly series. Next month on March 15th, everything Sci-Fi will be celebrated, so dust off those lightsabers. April 19th will be a chance to celebrate with “The ‘Way Back’ Birthday Bash” featuring classic party games. Pull out the tux for the May 17th “80s Prom” night. June 14th will be a “Kick-off To Summer Party” complete with tie-dye, and sandcastle contests.
    Guests must have a valid ID to attend. Tickets are on sale online through 5pm on February 15th for $10 and are $12 at the door. February's Grown-up Play Date is sponsored by RE/MAX Realty of Rochester. Visit www.childrens-museum.org to learn more or to purchase tickets.
