If we weren’t already excited enough about Picasso Exhibit happening October thru January, SAM has recently decided to extend the hours of the museum to now include Tuesdays and to push closing time from 9 p.m. to midnight on First Thursdays (Nov. 4, Dec. 2, and Jan. 6). Due to the exhibit's immense popularity, we applaud SAM for giving the more nocturnal among us an opportunity to view Picasso’s stunning artistic canon. Want to pre-funk your art viewing? Hit up the new Friday night happy hour in the Brotman Forum from 6-8 p.m. and nod to the beats of DJ “G” while enjoying a cocktail from TASTE Restaurant (cash only). INSIDER'S TIP: To save a little moolah, purchase tickets at discounted prices after 5.p.m on Thursdays and Fridays. Times and prices vary. Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Ave.; 206.654.3100; seattleartmuseum.org.
