It's time for a fresh visit to the California Academy of Sciences to celebrate the opening of Earthquake, their brand new exhibit and planetarium show, and party like it's 1906 again with their Earthquake Premiere Party. Delight in the debauchery of San Francisco’s most exciting era with dancing, cocktails and live music provided by the Vau de Vire Society.
There was a time when San Francisco, the ‘Paris of America,’ was the largest port city in the west—rich in gold, industry and culture, full of excitement, grit, beauty and mischief—and that era is exactly what the Academy aims to bring back to life at the Earthquake Premiere Party. Experience a taste of the seedy Barbary Coast brought to life through variety shows, art installations, roving characters and live music. Feel the awesome power of the Great Quake in an earthquake simulator, try a Pisco Punch or Martinez cocktail, and then dance the night away to the old–timey sounds of the Sour Mash Hug Band.
