Peabody Essex Museum has extended a special invitation to Drinking About Museums to their first #InstaMeet — join us for an evening of socializing and social media. We’ll start with snacks and conversation aboard the 5:30pm Salem Fast Ferry from Boston. After a brief walk to the museum, you’ll be let loose into PEM/PM Throwback Game Night to Instagram using the tag #PEMPM.
All participants receive free admission to the museum!
Throwback Game Night
(featuring our own Kellian Adams of Green Door Labs)
Travel back to the arcades and rec rooms of the ’70s and ’80s with a night dedicated to retro gaming! Challenge your friends in games of skill and chance – from tabletop and social games to vintage Atari, Twister, Sorry and Pac-Man. Experiment with game design in the Maker Lounge and invent original game art in the Create Spaces. While you’re here, visit Turner & the Sea before it closes on Labor Day, Monday, September 1.
Hope to see you all there!
