I only even heard of First Friday’s because I was interested in the band that was playing one particular night but it was so unique and fun that I will definitely be back. Once you’re inside there are several bar stations set up so as you walk around, drink in hand, you get to check out most of the museum’s exhibits, including impressive dinosaur skeleton displays. They also had people walking around in elaborate dinosaur costumes where (aside from the puppet operator’s legs subtly exposed below) it actually felt as if a rapture was poking around throughout the crowd. It was sort of spooky in the coolest way possible. And as if that wasn’t enough, at the end of the night you get to watch a concert!

I went to First Friday’s at the Natural History Museum to see a band play. I was surprised that a band I liked was playing at a museum, and they’re not even a jazz band! But when I got there I saw that this wasn’t an ordinary day at the museum, they had a bar located right behind a Tyrannosaurus Rex. It’s like you were at a museum in vegas because you could bring your drink around with you to most exhibits. It was a great time exploring the museum, listening to live music, and seeing a large dinosaur costume walking around.
