The Mating Game Cocktail Hour

Would you build a house out of twigs for the one you love? Or put on your best dance moves to your sweetheart? Join us for a Valentine’s Day-themed cocktail hour to learn about animal anatomy and mating rituals, as well as how people express love and romance.

Bring a date or bring your friends! The

evening will include objects and specimens from the Burke’s collection, and the chance to talk to collections staff while mingling with your friends in the exhibits.

Don’t miss:
- Mammals with their own impressive reproductive anatomy—from baculums to antlers
- Fossils of Crepidula fornicate snails who mated in clusters
- The bird world’s “Fancy Boys” with elaborate plumage and mating dances
- Insight into terrestrial snail and slug sex
- Spider courtship and mating
- Artifacts from early Seattle’s Red Light district
- Objects with hearts on them from across the world

There will also be snacks and beverages, including wine, beer, nonalcoholic beverages and a special cocktail made just for this event (details about the cocktail coming soon!).

Admission includes two drink tickets. Valid photo ID required for alcoholic beverages.
