a night for beetles, both british and insect-ual

Last Thursday I headed with some work friends to Golden Gate Park and the California Academy of Science’s weekly NightLife event. This is a great thing the academy does, where for a much-cheaper entry price ($12 versus the $30 it costs to get in during the day), a 21-and-over crowd can browse the museum’s exhibits, including a rainforest, a planetarium, an African wildlife display, an albino alligator and a really cool basement aquarium, while sipping cocktails and listening to DJ-spun music. Last Thursday, the event was even more special with an exhibition of just-released early Beatles photographs from The Beatles Story museum in Liverpool. Along with the rare photos (just uncovered in the photographer’s attic after 50 years), a creepy, yet colorful, selection of beetles were on display.
