Habitot Hosts After-Dark Event for Adults:


(Berkeley, CA) April 4, 2014

On April 4th from 6:30-10pm, Habitot Children’s Museum in downtown Berkeley will be opening museum doors to adults to play in the museum. However, instead of Raffi, museum goers will listen to the live beatbox cello funk sounds of local Bay Area musician, CelloJoe. Instead of apple juice, beer will be served thanks to Ninkasi Brewery’s “Beer Is Love” Program. Puppets, playdough, arts and crafts, face painting, enormous giant blue blocks, and a spaceship, will be present for event attendees to enjoy. Tickets are $15 for students and $20 for adults. Each ticket comes with one free beer (proof of ID required).

'Let the Big Kids Play' is an event inspired by the after-dark events that are trending at The Exploratorium, The Chabot Science Center, and other museums.” says Toni Mikulka, Habitot’s Special Events Manager. "We see museums expanding their hours for special event series like this to keep up revenue and offer a whole new experience to adults in a place that is otherwise a destination primarily for children. We welcome all the big kids to come and play!"

To attend the event, RSVP at: For more information, contact Toni Mikulka, Special Events Manager at or (510) 647-1111 x17. To learn more about Habitot visit: To preview CelloJoe’s music, please visit:
