Indie Mart at the Academy of Sciences 12/9!

People, this is very exciting. Two forces of San Francisco awesomeness, the California Academy of Sciences and Indie Mart, have teamed up for an evening of science, crafts, music, drinks and more. It goes down this Thursday, 12/9 from 6-10 pm at the Academy (in Golden Gate Park) Here’s the scoop straight from the Indie Mart folks:

In the sea of holiday craft and shopping events, Indie Mart is shooting above all of them like the water spout from a humpback! Prepare for cocktail slugging and gift purchasing near African penguins! Prepare for commerce and clothes shopping near Claude, the albino alligator!
In quite possible the most unique holiday sale ever attempted, Indie Mart is excited to announce that it will unleash this year’s holiday design show at T…he Academy of Sciences NIGHTLIFE! We have personally recruited 50 of the best, most unique vendors especially for this event. It wouldn’t be Indie Mart without booze, free DIY demos & gift making from Workshop, gift wrapping, live printing, and how-to’s on everything from mounting bugs making beer koozies that showcase your fave elements from the periodic table. Fu Kn Cr Zy!!!!

Our peeps at the Museum will be closing off the glass atrium for vendors, activities, snow (yes, snow) and even an igloo. If that’s not cooler than a polar bear’s toenails, then venture upstairs where bands AB and the Sea and Boy in the Bubble will keep the skinny jeans swaying and the feather headbands bobbing under the low lights! Cruise back downstairs for DJ’s Ts and Roll spinning in the main hall.
NightLife takes place every Thursday from 6 – 10 pm at the California Academy of Sciences. Visitors ages 21 and older can enjoy music, science, entertainment and cocktails, while experiencing the Academy’s world-class exhibits. Each week is different with the best in music, science, culture, food and entertainment.

Admission is $12, see the Academy’s website for ticket pre-purchase, directions, etc.
