Sip and Science
Bring your own bottle and your inner geekiness. We'll cut the kids music, throw on a some classic jazz, and break out our adult-exclusive STEM menu for a different kind of an evening out. You can challenge your partner to friendly little scientific competition or partner up to solve a problem together.
Just like our main menu, the Sip and Science menu offers the opportunity to play with the STEMporium equipment [Play Time(d)] and make items to take home with you [Make & Take]. You can always do a little of both!
