Time Out says

Take a rare nighttime trip behind Green-Wood's cast iron fence on this mini-expedition, sponsored by both the cemetery and Atlas Obscura. But there's more to this evening than just strolling through the cemetery's 478 acres by flashlight: Musical events, live readings, stargazing gatherings and other cool activities are tucked away here and there, ready to be discovered at your own pace. And there's a cash bar, too! Just think: you could dance and drink with the dead! (What, too morbid? It worked for Lydia in Beetlejuice.)

Definitely a unique and interesting experience! Nothing you're going to find anywhere else! With that said, it was also a confusing experience, which is maybe supposed to be a part of it? The doors opened late, so by then we were already confused as to what was starting when as many of acts had scheduled start and end times. Also some of the acts started at 8 (when doors opened) ALL THE WAY on the other side of the cemetery. Not sure how anyone was supposed to make it to those. Then we kind of just wandered around. Randomly coming upon musical performances. The music was very nice, but I was hoping there would be more than just music. I thought there would be more story telling or dramatci performances, perhaps there would be a guide. Its possible I just missed those things, as there wasn't time to see everything. A nice different kind of evening, but nothing amazing.
