If you’re like me, you have been to exactly zero editions of Friday Night at the de Young this year, despite the events being FREE and really cool. And if, like me, you regret this fact, Friday is the last opportunity in 2010 to experience some low-key museum fun after a day of gut-busting thankfulness.
Featured in the last installment of Friday Nights at the de Young will be live orchestra music, performances of classic opera songs by sopranos from City Opera SF, a magic show (an “illusion show”!) by Paul Nathan and John Anaya that will apparently somehow incorporate a full band and impressionist images from the Orsay exhibit, and the usual awesome arts and crafts.
Pretty sure the FREE magic show is reason enough to venture out for this closing night, but right now some mellow orchestra music sounds amazing after what I’m sure will turn out to be a Thursday shitshow of listening to the raucous, deafening ramblings of drunk relatives. Ahh, the holidays.FREE Magic Show, opera and crafts at 2010 Finale of Friday Nights at the de Young Friday, November 26, 5pm – 8:45pm 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr. [Golden Gate Park] FREE
