Science on the Rocks: Sounds & Stones
This Quarterly After Hours event for adults features the Science of Rocks: Sounds & Stones.
A new exhibition called Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked the World features one of the largest playable guitars, allowing visitors to let inner rock star take center stage. Explore rocks, both musical and metamorphic, while making coins shriek, design your dream guitar on a touch screen, and reaffirm that diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
Food samples from the Hard Rock Hotel’s Maryjane’s Coffee Shop, Barleymash, Uptown Tavern, and Sadie Rose Baking Company will be available. Sample sips from California Fruit Wine and beer from Helm's Brewing Company and Port Brewing Company/The Lost Abbey will also be available, and visitors can play the Rock Band video game, courtesy of Mad Catz.
