It’s Playtime at Bixby’s Exhibition-Inspired Cocktail Party

Posted on

Dine on Sophisticated Versions of your Childhood Favorites, Take a Trip Down Memory Lane and Share the Joy of a New Toy with A Child in Need

In conjunction with the Missouri History Museum’s current exhibit, Bixby’s is throwing a special Act Like A Kid | Benefit A Kid cocktail party. To ensure all local children can act like a kid this holiday season, guests are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to a child in need. In return, Bixby’s will give you a complimentary signature cocktail and a gift card to enjoy lunch at the restaurant in 2017! Purchase your tickets today!

The details for the event are as follows:

WHAT: An evening of sheer fun and nostalgia, guests dine on sophisticated versions of their favorite childhood foods with heavy hors d’oeuvres from Bixby’s chef! Act like a kid, but sip responsibly from the full cash bar and enjoy Bixby’s signature cocktail of the evening, The Time Traveler.

Straight from the curator, hear the stories of the kids who played with these toys, the adults who bought them, the child-rearing experts who judged them, and the people who invented them, before heading on an after-hours tour of the exhibition: Toys of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s.

WHEN:     Act Like A Kid | Benefit a Kid on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

WHERE:  Bixby’s, located on the second floor of the Missouri History Museum

COST:       The price is $25 for Missouri History Museum Members and $30 for non-members. The price includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, one complimentary signature cocktail per adult and insider insights from the curator. Tours of the Toys of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s exhibition are free.
