Dont expect an uptight crowd, either. The events coordinators passed on string quartets, they pooh-poohed jazz trios, and they called in the big guns: Riptide, the rockinest live band this side of the Carolinas. Sip cocktails under the stars, nibble on tasty appetizers, and then shake a tail feather with a new acquaintance all in the name of do-gooding. You dont have to be a BAM member to attend, but if you are youll enjoy a reduced ticket price of $20. Everyone else is welcome to help pack the joint; simply make a donation of $35. Visit www.bocamuseum.org. This event runs from 7 to 10 p.m.
