|Believe in Music benefit: Hallows Eve Beer Bash and Costume Ball at the Maryland Science Center|
The Saturday before Halloween is always jam packed with awesome events, and this year Baltimore Photo Social got to be a part of one of the most awesome-est: Hallows Eve Beer Bash and Costume Ball. The sold out event, held at the Maryland Science Center, was a benefit for Living Classroom Foundations Believe in Music program.
As a part of Baltimore Beer Week, the event was sponsored by Flying Dog Brewery who provided tons of delicious locally brewed libations to over 600 thirsty guests. Attendee Alison Johnson said it best:
"I cannot think of anything more fun than being cut loose in a museum of gadgets with an (almost) open bar."
Almost everyone was in costume. We spotted at least 3 Walter Whites, a few Mary Poppins, the cast of Star Wars, Smurfs, Frye and Lela from Futurama and of course all sorts of super heroes, cats, witches and skeletons. It was noticeable that most female attendees were more concerned with impressively creative costumes than the typical "sexy ___" that have become so obnoxious over the last few years. Maybe that is because the event was held at the Science Center??
If you got there early enough, a free finger food buffet was provided by Mothers Federal Hill Grille. 'Newtons Alley', 'The Shed' and 'Follow the Blue Crab', permanent museum exhibits, were open for guests to meander through, maybe learning a little something along the way. For those lucky enough to score one of the limited upgrade tickets, the internationally touring exhibit 'Mummies of the World' was open and complimented by a spooky Halloween soundtrack. If science wasn't your thing, bands like The Herd of Main Street, Psycho Killers and The Manly Deeds kept the night rocking. The 360 HD Planetarium was turned into a dance party, DJ's spinning all night under the milky way. Scott Mullins, WTMD Dirty Soul Party DJ, lent his old school vibe by broadcasting live from the VIP lounge. And of course, yours truly with the Baltimore Photo Social booth was boogying and taking pictures all night.
