“Act Up!” This Instagram-worthy graffiti on the Berlin Wall in the Newseum captures the spirit of everything we love about free expression. Join us for our last Newseum Nights of the year, in collaboration with Art Soiree, for a wildly entertaining after-hours spectacle you won’t want to miss!

  • Open beer and wine bar all night with a specialty cocktail station featuring Pumpkin Hot Toddies
  • Flying Dog Brewery tasting station featuring seasonal brews from our exclusive beer sponsor for the evening
  • Fun finger food stations with popcorn chicken, tater tots and a popcorn bar

  • Custom on-the-spot haikus from the Haiku Guys & Gals
  • Glow-in-the-dark silent disco powered by Silent Dance Society with DJ Moosic, DJ Electr0x and DJ Eric
