Tonight is the Belle Isle Aquarium fundraiser, Race To Reopen The Aquarium, which will start at 7 and go until 11. Tickets are $50 per person and there will be a cash bar (including the speakeasy in the basement) and local restaurants, such as The Whitney and Union Street (among others) will be providing food. Entertainment includes fire dancers, jugglers and burlesque dancers in one of the tanks. Artwork from many local artists (including yours truly) will be on display in the tanks that don't have fish in them. And speaking of fish, we have more than ten tanks filled with fish, eels, turtles and all that goodness.
This party kicks off the Grand Prix festivities, so come on down. Tickets will go on sale at 5pm.
