Has anybody been to the weekly cocktail party at the Houston Museum of Natural Science called Mixers & Elixers?

A group of friends want me to come but you have to pay to get in (17 bucks!!!) and there's a cash bar BUT there's quality live music and some of Houston's "in" crowd (who they are? I don't know) is supposed to hang out there...

Anybody been? Worth it?

I'd be interested in knowing. We planned on going last summer, but just never worked it in.

When I lived in Chicago they had something similar, and I thought it was kind of cool...but $17 to enter??? Thats a bit steep. What does it normally cost to get in?

I enjoy drinkning with the dinosaurs, and it's different than the usual bar crowd. I try to make it out to at least 3 times during the summer. I think it includes an IMAX ticket for the night.

You should do it at least once.

The $17 gets you the IMAX ticket, great live band, dancing if you wish, appetizers and a nice atmosphere (area of the museum that has the dynosaurs, pretty cool). Worth your time.
