Cozy up for a night of icy adventures, Dec. 21

Celebrate the first night of winter with us! Join us on Dec. 21 for LSC After Dark: Science, Sweets & Ugly Sweaters.

Show up in your most hideous sweater—or simply come in something cozy and comfortable!—and help us kick off the season with icy cool experiments and sweet adventures. Midnight Market NJ also returns this month with $5 bites and sweets from local food vendors.
