UW's Burke Museum, as part of its NiteLife series, is hosting an event that features a bunch of creatures that are notoriously creepy. While I'm an inveterate arachnophobe, they've got some enticing arguments for attendance. For one, bats and snakes are pretty cool. For two, Westland will be there, dispensing their "signature creepy-crawly cocktail," a concoction of their American single-malt whiskey, black walnut bitters, orgeat syrup, and lime juice. There's also beer from Two Beers (specifically their seasonally appropriate Grey Skies Dark Pale Ale and their Immersion Amber), wine, nonalcoholic beverages, and snacks. Perhaps most importantly, this event provides you with two drink tickets for $15 (less for students and museum members!), which is about what you'd spend with tip at your average Thursday happy hour elsewhere. Need I say more?
