'A new adult-exclusive event': Vancouver Aquarium launches 'Fish and Sips' nights

The events add beer and wine and removes kids from the aquarium experience
Fish and Sips is coming to the Vancouver Aquarium twice this summer.

We've all heard the phrase 'drinks like a fish', but what about drinking near a fish?

Or many fish?

That's what the Vancouver Aquarium is offering this summer, with their 'Fish and Sips' events.

"Vancouver Aquarium is opening its doors after hours for a new adult-exclusive event series starting June 17," the aquarium states in a press release, offering attendees a new way to visit their 65,000 residents.

Fish and Sips offers three things a normal visit to the aquarium doesn't. There will be beer, wine and snacks to enjoy as attendees wander the aquarium, it'll be a chance to go in the evening, and there will be no kids.

"Ticket holders are welcome to enjoy our 4D Theatre experience and attend exclusive Talks and Feedings, with unique animals and exhibits featured at every event," states the aquarium.

While the talks and presentations are still being organized, they'll include things like the sea lions, sea otters and the new 'Nature's Ninjas' exhibit.

Unlike the 'Nights at the Aquarium' events, which are gourmet dinners, 'Fish and Sips' is a more relaxed event series.
