Yes, this year’s tech event for adults is being held at a children’s museum.

While previous Tech Nights have traditionally been held at the Baltimore Convention Center, last year’s event — the first since WhoGlue founder Jason Hardebeck was installed as executive director in late 2011 — was held at Lexington Market in West Baltimore.

“I think we could have done it in Lexington Market again, but we liked the idea of doing it in some place unexpected and new,” said’s Sharon Paley.

Tech Night 2013 tickets are $60 through Nov. 4.

No Lamplighters Awards are scheduled for this year’s Tech Night, but will be awarding a $1,000 Civic Innovation Prize in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of Information Technology.
