Tonight: Drinking Tequila With The Mayans

You know what’s awesome? Turning what is suposed to be an educational and enlightening experience into an excuse to get drunk at the museum. The problem is, short of hip flasks or cleverly concealed pony kegs, getting tipsy and then licking the exhibits is not often an easy proposition.

So isn’t it nice that the good people at the Penn Museum have made it simple for you by offering a Patron tequila tasting tonight right on the grounds? For $30 ($25 for members), you’ll get access to the Lords of Tequila event, which includes a cocktail out in the Warden Garden, followed by a “tutored tequila tasting” which will “explore the history and tradition of Patrón’s signature brand along with special Maya-themed appetizers”–in addition to getting you a little bit lubed up in anticipation of heading deeper into the museum to experience all the End Times weirdness explored in the Maya 2012: Lords of Time exhibit.

Sounds like a damn fine way to spend a Thursday night to me.
