Night Owls

Thursday, March 6
7:30–10:00 p.m.
A List members free; nonmembers $10
21 and up

Night has fallen, the moon is out, and the A List has transformed into The Nite Owls. Celebrate the cocktail party launch of the new young art and music lovers group at the Athenaeum with local bites, a full bar, and music. Abandon the inky La Jolla night and dip into the soft, starry light of the Athenaeum as you sip on your signature cocktail and the art of Robert Irwin highlights your mind. The revelry will end in a DJ dance party that brings the night life back to La Jolla. Intertwine with other young arts enthusiasts after the sun dies and The Nite Owls come to life.

RSVP in advance by calling 858 454 5872, or if you are not a member yet and want to join in the fun, buy your tickets here


Join us at the library for a fun music and art mixer for young professionals age 21+.
