What is not to like about the Thursday nightlife event here? It is half the price of admission for all the same exhibits. Furthermore, it seemed to me there was a ton of attractive, sophisticated singles at this museum. They do a really good job to catering towards adults by having a DJ in one area and bars well situated throughout the museum. The exhibits are informative and fantastic. The climate controlled rain forest is really awesome. They showcase four different rain forests from around the world. Make sure to hit this first, it closes before everything else. On their "living roof", they have telescopes for star gazing and attendants to tell you what planet. When I went my friend decided to move the telescope around instead of keeping it stationary. Mr. attendant came over and asked her "what she was doing". I told him she is ditsy like that, do not mind her. Their aquarium is big. It takes up most of the bottom floor, and it is very diverse. When I went they had an albino alligator and an exhibit to touch a starfish. It is a delight for a Thursday night and a great interactive date place. *Tip* Third Wednesday is free during the day.

I've been living in the city for 5 years now and have experienced my fair share of bars. This one's my favorite for NUMEROUS reasons. 1. Tim's awesome. 2. Games 3. Pretty decent prices for the city 4. NOT your typical Marina Douchebag bar, or mission emo-band playing dive. This place is "real" and it's laid back. The FOOD rocks, the TV's and games especially rock. Its on top of my list. Its comfortable.

I am really earning my collegiate stripes with this - but there is nothing better (some nights) than reppin' it at the Kong with good friends and a scorpion bowl. Thursday nights are unofficial senior bar nights - there is some quality ridiculousness going on all under one roof. For pure sketch, go upstairs to the top floor for some dancing - yikes.
