LSC After Dark

On July 19, 2018, we’re traveling back in time 150 million years for our next LSC After Dark event for guests 21 and over, “Wine-O-Saurs,” from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Click here for tickets.

At this prehistoric party, you’ll dance with dinosaurs, enjoy delicious wine tastings, and search for fossils in LSC’s popular summer exhibition, Dino Dig, which is based on the findings of paleontologist Jack Horner, the inspiration behind Jurassic Park.

Need some convincing? Here are 13 reasons you can’t miss LSC After Dark: Wine-O-Saurs:

1) Sangria Bar

Yum! Enjoy a refreshing drink at our specialty Sangria Bar, with three different flavors: strawberry jalapeno, rosé, and grapefruit.

2) Dino Dig

LSC’s popular summer exhibition, Dino Dig, is now open for the season! Head out back and uncover massive dinosaur bones by digging through 35 tons of sand. Look for more than 60 fossils, many of them replicas of those discovered in Montana by Jack Horner, the famed paleontologist who inspired Jurassic Park.

In your journey, you might uncover T.rex bones and teeth, an egg nest with a baby Maiasaura, a 6-foot-long Triceratops skull, and even a dragonfly fossil.

3) Pin the Feather on the Dinosaur

Did you know recent research shows that dinosaurs were actually covered in feathers? In this activity, you’ll get to pin the feathers on the velociraptor. Make them look pretty. Make them look scientifically accurate!

4) Wine tastings!

Enjoy FREE wine tastings, courtesy of Super Buy-Rite. We’ll have sangria, rosé, pinot grigio, and bere toscana.
