We routinely include Mia’s Third Thursday parties—they do a good job with their live music selections, keep the lines moving at their drink stands, and have a great Scene + Be Seen™ vibe to each and every one. But this month’s installment stands above the already high bar thanks to the very exciting new exhibit Egypt’s Sunken Cities. Everything we’ve seen and heard makes the rescued pieces a must-see, a description we’ve also used for this Third Thursday’s musical act, powerhouse Vie Boheme. Thursday, November 15th, 6-9 PM. Free. —Hitara
