Ever wonder what it would be like to tour Willy Wonka's factory? I imagine it's a little like Explora's Science of Beer night on Friday, Feb. 24. Maybe after the beer tasting, you'll suddenly be lifted off the ground. Or maybe you'll just be tipsy. Either way, it's guaranteed to be a good time. For this 21 and over event, you get free run of the whole museum plus beer-related experiments and Marble Brewery tastings. Move over Charlie Bucket, there's a new sheriff in town. Just beware of the chocolate river and stick to the bubble table, and you should make it out in one piece. Tickets are $8 for Explora members, $10 for non-members. (Taylor Grabowsky)
