My wife and I went to All Growed Up last year around Halloween and we had a great time. There were food trucks, adult beverages, science demonstrations, and we even felt like kids again playing with some of the different stations at the Science Spectrum. It was actually a lot more fun that I thought it was going to be. Check it out.
