Science Straight Up Event: Date Night🔬🦋🐛🌱💫

Science Straight Up: Fresh and Green- Connecticut Science Center in Hartford, CT

There’s nothing like attending a 21+ event full of like-minded, inquisitive adults and interacting with exhibits on green science and other scientific concepts. A drink or two is also a plus.The gin promo girl hooked me and my boyfriend up with an extra shot in my cocktail so our evening started off pretty well.

There was a machine that detected brain waves. The more relaxed you were, the higher and longer a ball would levitate in a tube. I was frustrated because my boyfriend won at first, but we found out that my side had been less sensitive. So when we switched sides and I did way better than he did.

My boyfriend tried to run against a real-time simulated screen of a paraplegic athlete and lost. I don’t blame him, that guy was really fast. The butterfly conservatory was so amazing; I even got to see a live Blue Morpho butterfly fluttering by among countless others. The science center had a bunch of plants, moths, pupa, and caterpillars on display. We witnessed the uncommon occurrence of a caterpillar pupating right before our eyes under a microscope connected to a screen.

They had various workshops on cannabis and medical marijuana and a few strains were on display under microscopes. And at the end of the night we explored the universe in a space travel simulator. I’m a huge fan of seeing all the different colors of the galaxy. Overall, I highly recommend the science straight up event at the CT science center for a date night with your nerdy other half. There’s something for everyone!

Something Old, Something New

Something old, some thing new. My boyfriend accidentally agreed for us to attend two events happening at the same time on the same day. Our options were to either celebrate an old marriage (50th anniversary) or a new marriage (Jack and Jill). We were the only couple brave enough to offend both parties and make an appearance at both. In other words, leaving a party early/showing up late at another). It all worked out though.

The first event was the Jack & Jill. My boyfriend joked about how he literally changed the diapers of the groom-to-be and how he was getting old. They gave away sugar eggs as party favors, held raffles with tons of cool prizes, and had a 50/50.

The anniversary party was at the couple’s house instead of a restaurant. They had old wedding photos hanging from balloons, they recreated their wedding party photos, and there were plenty of refreshments. There was a bar, cupcakes, chocolate fountain, candy, etc… Both events were beautiful and it is great to see how love can be celebrated with friends and family, old or new.

When you’re accidentally double-booked for events do you celebrate a new marriage or an old one? Something old or something new?
