This was supposed to be one of those "live action" shots but my friends and I had no idea how to make that happen and my poor husband had no idea how to shoot it! I love them all...

Ever so often Google treats its #CityExperts to a night of great food, signature cocktails, bumping music and a ton of fun. Last night was one of those nights as we drank with dinosaurs at City Experts Exclusive: Night at the Museum!

The art pieces were AMAZING and the tour guides that worked the event were so enthusiastic and truly loved their jobs. I am not a science chick AT ALL but they had me jazzed, I even took a tour of the place..it was quite educational.

I was jazzed to learn that a bulk of the artifacts and fossils displayed were from Africa, Morocco to be exact.

The dinosaurs by far, were the highlight of the night. It's hard to believe that these massive creatures once roamed the earth. I couldn't even imagine running into one of these things in real life. I think I jumped every time I walked up on a display.. and they weren't even moving. 

Google provided yummy, passed hor d'oeuvres for all to enjoy. The duck empanadas and red snapper ceviche bites were simply amazing. We happened to stand at a table near the kitchen and got first dibs on all the food. 

A party wouldn't be a party with out delectable cocktails and sweet treats. We enjoyed an open bar with signature cocktails with cool names that adhered to the theme of the party! 

Of course with it being free liquor we tried them all but quickly struck the "Museum District Madras" off our sipping list once it was discovered (or read aloud from the menu) that it contained no alcohol. The "Space City Slinger" was good and when we had the bartender add vodka to the Madras drink it was quickly added back to our list!

Even the candy on the tables matched the Google color scheme. I over heard some idiot asking "So, how did you all decide what colors to use for the candy and lights?"..The waiter replied to me.. I mean the idiot, that these are obviously Google's colors. I heard the idiot say.. oooohhhhh...

Being the candy junkie that I am I ate more candy then food, but the question I kept asking everyone was where on earth do you find a bag of only green sixlets.. where? 

To close out the evening waiters passed around raspberry and pomegranate sorbet in waffle cones and mouthwatering chocolate truffles. My girlfriend who loves truffles literally lost it at this point and there was chocolate everywhere.

These sweet parting gifts were the icing on the cake..balls..

I am oh so grateful for these experiences and the fact that I can share them with my family and friends is awesome. They always have a blast and in life I have found that happiness is all that matters.
