Tuesdays on the Terrace: MoM15
posted June 25, 2014 6:50 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Tue July 22 at 5:30 PM, MCA Chicago
220 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Tomeka Reid is the featured musician on July 22. Tuesday is free admission day at the MCA (if you have an ID that says you're an Illinois resident) and the concert is free with admission to the museum. They kick everyone out at 8:30.
C'mon, Tuesdays on the Terrace are basically free (food and drink for purchase)! You get to go home early if you have work the next day! You need an excuse to brave the tourists around MagMile! Low pressure, low cost, low impact way to make MoMu15 (I like MoMu better than MoM! I'm allowed to!) part of your July. Also, this is very near to my birthday and I will probably wear a birthday hat.

See? Fun, fun stuff.

It all sounds good to me and, hey! it's right across the street from my office.

And the MCA is about the best museum in the city. Small enough to not be overwhelmed. Things change often enough that you don't see the same thing all the time. Currators good enough that someone who knows basically nothing about art like me can have a great time.

Are you still wearing a birthday hat?

I understand the heat or just the passage of time may have changed this original plan, but I wanted to know where to set my expectations.

Unfortunately no. I had to go to court this morning and completely forgot the hat at home. Pity, it's a lovely hat!

I will take a hatcheck.

If I get 1) over myself trying to be an anonymous dog on the internet and 2) done with work at a decent time, I'll join you all! But how will I know who you are, if nobody's wearing a birthday hat?

Well some people look like their profile pictures. Others, like me, will be wearing polka dots

I have a couple grass mats for sitting on the ground & will head over pretty much at 5:30.

I'm on my way now! Are we meeting in any particular spot?

I planned to go straight to the lawn out back.

I do look like my profile and also put my cell number in my profile just now.

So they've moved the event indoors, which seems less appealing. I'm near the entrance

Scaredy cats. I'm sitting outside at pritzker and I only barely fear for my life.

So... I only just got off a conf call, and I need to brain-dump before leaving, which means I'm still a maybe but looking increasingly unlikely. If only Chicago meetups weren't so rare!

I went but have lots of fear about approaching people when I am not confident about identities! (Also it was so hot and crowded, oh man.) I will try a smaller meetup.

Aww, so sorry we missed you, goodbyewaffles! And sorry you didn't end up making it, Westringia! Please both try again soon!

I just added my cell phone number to my profile. Feel free to text me if you're ever coming out to a meetup I'm signed up for and aren't sure where the Mefites are!
