Drinks + dinosaurs mix at return of popular Thursdays on Tap at the Perot Museum
One of Dallas' most unique and enjoyable programs is ordering another round. Thursdays on Tap at the Perot Museum of Nature & Science starts up again on April 6 and runs through the end of October (cue rejoicing from the 21-and-up crowd who loves booze and dinosaurs).
This is your chance to tour the entire museum without the daytime crowds or children getting underfoot. You can also purchase drinks from the outdoor bars for only $3-$10 (last call is at 9:45 pm, FYI).
Then purchase tasty treats and delicious bites from the many rotating food trucks and vendors parked outside from 6-10 pm.
The drool-worthy vendors you can expect to see on Thursday nights in April include:
- Mi Cocina (April 6 and 20)
- Cuates Kitchen (April 6)
- Easy Slider (April 6)
- Community Beer Co. (April 6, 13, and 20)
- Sushi Dojo (April 13)
- Cousins Maine Lobster (April 13)
- Magdalena's (April 13)
- Egg Stand (April 20)
- Ruthie's Rolling Cafe (April 20)
Until Labor Day, the museum’s latest traveling exhibition “The Science Behind Pixar,” presented locally by NexPoint, is included in the price of admission.
Though taking public transportation, carpooling, or using a rideshare service is recommended due to the nature of the event, all guests can park for $10 per car (credit card only) in the main parking lot under Woodall Rodgers Freeway on Broom Street, right across from the museum.
Thursdays on Tap is $25 for non-members, and only $5 for members. The program begins April 6 and runs weekly until October 26. More information can be found on the Perot Museum's website.
