NightSchool: Prom

When: Fri., May 18, 7 p.m. 2012

Whether you loved, loathed, or altogether avoided your high school prom, you can give it another, geekier go at Chabot Space & Science Center's (1000 Skyline Blvd., Oakland) NightSchool celebration on Friday, May 18. While this prom-themed iteration of the monthly eighteen-and-over soiree has some of the traditional trappings of the teenage gathering -- a photo booth, dancing, and the crowning of a king and queen -- science-loving socialites will delight in more mindful activities like constructing corsages from recycled wrappers and talking pheromones with Oakland Zoo experts. Plus, beer and wine will be served to those of age, so no need to sneak sips of schnapps in the bathroom. 7-11 p.m., $5-$12. 510-336-7373 or
