Jurassic Lounge: Day of the Dead

Well behind the eight ball here, I've finally gotten around to writing about Day of the Dead at Jurassic Lounge.

Unfortunately, I didn't have anything in the way of a Halloween celebration this year (no one even trick or treats in my neighbourhood), so to make up for it I booked myself and a friend into Jurassic Lounge's Day of the Dead night. I've attended Jurassic Lounge before, which you can read about here.

Jurassic Lounge was an event night series at the Australian Museum in Sydney which unfortunately shut down at the end of 2013 due to not enough attendees (the event drew massive crowds only on particular nights). This year though, Jurassic Lounge returned for one night, November 1, to host a Day of the Dead party, complete with pinata making, sugar skulls and photo sessions with the bone collections.

Here's my face on the night.
Being the special snowflake I am, I decided to make a bat pinata instead of the round ones that everyone else was making (round? Ptsh.) and with my friend making a flower, we sat for way longer than everyone else trying to finish the damned things. It didn't help that one of the workers loved my bat so much she kept stopping me to take photos, or to show the bat to other people, which was a bit awkward.

The bat pinata in question.

Anyway, the bat got done and we went for a wander through the museum's three floors, got our photos taken with a couple of skulls and watched some burlesque performances. It was a quieter night than the last time we went, but that may partially have been because I was tired.

Have any of you Aussie readers ever been to a Jurassic Lounge night?


  1. That sounds like a lot of fun! Your bat pinata is really cute

  2. Thank you :) I'm planning on sticking some googly eyes on it and hanging it up on my bedroom door.
