We will join the fun at the New Britain Museum of American Arts First Friday, the museum’s Best Happy Hour.
This month’s feature act, Eight to the Bar, will get you on the dance floor as they perform their colorful mix of forties jazz and swing, fifties jump blues, and their own swing and blues infused originals. Known for their powerful female vocals and strong performances, Eight to the Bar packs a visual wallop that has earned them local and national attention.
Explore the museum’s collection with other art lovers in a tour guided by one of the knowledgeable docents at 6 p.m. Relax into a sketching session with a costumed, live model where you will sharpen your skills through capturing the human figure and drapery. Bring your own materials; graphite and pencil only please.
All activities, tours, and performances are included with your ticket.
Cash bar: $4 well drinks, $6 calls, and $8 top shelf
