7 p.m. In Conversation: Highlighting the long-term exhibition Connecting Cultures, Chefs Dale Talde and Eddie Huang discusses the many ways in which food, like art, can create connections between cultures. In connection with this program, Chef Talde will be featuring dishes inspired by objects in the Brooklyn Museum's collection at eponymous Park Slope restaurant the week leading up to the program. 7-9 p.m. Singles Scavenger Hunt: Trivia questions, hidden clues, and other creative challenges hold the key to this Museum-wide search created for singles in partnership with The Go Game, a San Franciso-based company that stages technology-fueled games and activities for groups of 3 to 10,000 players. The Go Game has created events for hundreds of companies including Dell, AT&T, Facebook, Nokia, Microsoft, eBay, Inc., PepsiCo, and Nike. Teams will use their own mobile phones to pick their own adventure. Participants will choose between 4 different missions: * Sneak and Snoop: Players must find pieces of art in the Museum and solve a puzzle or clue based on the work. These missions will use problem solving skills, general knowledge, and some art history. * Creative: Players will take photos and videos on their phones based on instructions provided. For example, they might be asked to recreate a famous or iconic image and take a photo of it. All photos and videos will be uploaded into a gallery with a real-time update. * Actors: Players will find actors who are planted throughout the Museum and be asked to complete a task. Once they do they will receive a password to move forward. * Trivia: Brooklyn Museum-based trivia and some basic art trivia. * Interteam: Players will go head to head against another team in such challenges as a trivia battle, a staring contest, and more.
