Bring a date to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) to experience a night of Egyptian culture and cuisine on Friday, February 11th. The Egyptian-themed date night “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” will begin at 7:00 that evening.

    “We created this date night as a means to educate participants about ancient Egyptian culture in a relaxed, casual setting,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC.

    February 11th will be an evening filled with competition, prizes, learning, and food. Couples will have the chance to win prizes through three different activities: a mummy-wrapping race, a set of three different games (Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash, and “Matching of the Gods”), and painting hieroglyphics. Mediterranean refreshments will also be provided for the couples to enjoy.

    “I like ‘Sphinxes and Sweethearts’ because it’s a date night unlike any other,” said McKean. “How often do you hear someone say that they learned to paint hieroglyphics over the weekend?”

    Tickets for the date night are $10 per couple and will be available at the WSC Information Desk beginning Monday, February 7th. For more information visit mpc.byu.edu or call 801.422.0020.
