The Smithsonian worked alongside thirstDC to bring its expertise to the people in a fresh new format. Last Thursday, the organizations hosted their second collaborative event known as thirstDC: Special Smithsonian Edition. Six Smithsonian experts representing four different museums took the stage to deliver a short talk on the most fascinating aspects of their research. In between presentations, guests were encouraged to engage directly with the speakers and each other over cocktails and to the sounds of the house DJ.

We had to check it out and we’re glad we did; dino costumes, elves, feathers and superhero philosophy ahoy–check out all of this and more from the evening’s event:
