Don’t Turn into a Pumpkin
The stroke of midnight brings different feelings depending on your age. For kids, it’s a thing of wonder—a magical hour that we get to see during sleepovers and covertly on Christmas Eve. For young adults, it’s just part of the day; two hours ‘til closing, and the time when they start selling corny dogs at The Landing. And for grownups, it’s the time when we know that we’re gonna be screwed at work the next day ‘cause we’re still awake. Whatever phase you’re in, this month’s offering of ‘til Midnight at the Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, has something to offer. Youngsters will feel mighty special staying up on a summer night and participating in a social media scavenger hunt or a gallery tour. The party crowd will appreciate the live music from Foxtrot Uniform at 7 p.m. and the libations available onsite from Wolfgang Puck’s Nasher Café. And the weary among us will learn to embrace midnight again thanks to a little family time in the sculpture garden and some good old-fashioned fun in the form of a 9 p.m. screening of the Katherine Hepburn/Cary Grant comedy “Bringing Up Baby”. Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday; admission is free.
Fri., July 18, 6-11:59 p.m., 2014
