On select Friday nights from 6:30 to 9:30pm, Circus Center stays open after hours so anyone 21 and up with 10 bucks can watch performances by clowns, the flying trapeze troupe, and other circus artists, plus learn how to play with some circus toys on their own. Want a chance to fly on the trapeze? That’ll be another 10 bucks, but you’ll also get a glass of wine or beer (after you land safely, of course).
The Contemporary Jewish Museum has a quarterly after-hours event that’s open to goyim, too. For $5, you can enjoy admission to the museum as well as live music, DJs, crafts, and customized drinks and snacks. Previous Jewseum events have included 1960s themes and exhibits on Amy Winehouse. The CJM doesn’t have the massive hype of other museum after-hours events, making this a great, not-crazy-crowded way to spend happy hour.
