[image-1] Who says aquariums are just for kids? The South Carolina Aquarium is continuing its After Hours Program — all-inclusive night events at the aquarium reserved for those 21 and up. Attendees can enjoy a night of wildlife with like-minded adults as they’re treated to small plates from the Aquarium’s Good Catch partners, plus beer and wine.

The series launches Fri. Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. with Oysterfest, a bivalve bonanza featuring bites from Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, The Mills House, Charleston Harbor Fish House, Fleet Landing Restaurant and Bar, CRU Catering, and B. Gourmet Catering. Tickets are $45 per person, $75 VIP.

Then, in the spring, enjoy a glass of vino at the next After Hours event, a Carolina Wine Mixer on Friday May 17 starting at 7 p.m. Following the mixer, there will be a Jazz on the Harbor themed after hours event Fri. June 7; Beer from Here Fri. Aug. 16; and Southern Spirits on Oct. 25, a spooky almost-Halloween happy hour. Purchase tickets online to any or all of the after hours events.
