Vintage Nintendo in a rainforest?

We love Nightlife at the California Academy of Sciences. Not only are the tickets half the price of regular museum admission (only $12!), but it’s 21+ so there are never any snot-nosed kids kicking the back of your chair in the planetarium (which boasts the most accurate rendering of the universe ever created). Every week, on top of the usual exhibits they also bring in additional shows, exhibitors or DJs to keep things from feeling too museum-like, and this week they’re bringing the game night experts from homefrys so you can make some new friends over a couple of rounds of Jenga, Catchphrase and everyone’s favorite: Apples to Apples.

MORE IMPORTANTLY: They’ll be bringing along Wii sports and Old School Nintendo, hopefully on some sort of unnecessarily large screen, so you can relive that childhood you wasted in your friend’s basement pounding the PowerPad in Track & Field. Although, you might not want to let the penguins see you playing Duck Hunt, that just seems cruel.

And don’t forget, if you’re birthday is within 7 days of any Nightlife event, you can get FREE admission.
