Ian Cooke plays the Science Lounge, where there's booze, bear suits and plenty of gluesticks

At last night's Science Lounge at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, I asked a grown woman what drew her into a fishbowl full of craft supplies to make her own mini diorama, and this is what she said: "I was like, ooh! There's glue sticks in there!"

Hot glue does have an undeniable magical pull on folks who fondly remember craft time in summer camp. At this month's Science Lounge event, after hours museum-goers were invited to relive their childhood hobbies while sipping on cocktails. And everyone was totally into it.
