Fun fact: Indianapolis is home to the largest children’s museum in the world. The only bad thing about the museum is that there are always a bunch of children there. Go figure. But in 2013, Adult Swim Indy was born. On this one night of the year, they open the museum up to adults only. Tickets are pricey because it’s a fundraiser, but thanks to the generosity of a friend (whose dad is a sponsor of the event), I got to go last year and again this past weekend.
It is…so. much. fun. Picture 2500 drunk grownups hula hooping and riding a carousel. There are tasty food samples from local vendors (beer cheese soup has changed my life), a DJ, and a drum circle surrounded by dinosaur skeletons. You can see a few photos from the night on my Instagram feed.
As an added bonus, Adult Swim has become sort of fashion show too! I think people really take advantage of the chance to wear something different from what they would wear on a typical weekend. I don’t know if you knew this about me, but I quite enjoy an excuse to put together a fun outfit, and this is what I came up with! I figured as long as I’m going to be at a children’s museum, I might as well act like a child and insist on wearing all my favorite things at once: plaid, leather, ankle boots, fun jewelry, red lipstick, and an unexpected hat that clashes with everything else. I’m a big girl…I’ll do what I want.
And as long as I’m being childish, here are some funny faces:
