We've been meaning to start the Metro North Getaways and finally we are going to do it! First stop, Dia Beacon. It's a giant art museum located right off the Metro North located in an old Nabisco factory. It's supposed to be pretty awesome in its scope. We may try to get on the 1pm tour. Go to Grand Central and ask for the special package price of $33.50. This is a $6.50 savings. No photography.

I'll be there at 10:15ish. After 20 minutes we'll get on the 10:44 train which arrives in Beacon at noon. By the time we find the museum and get ourselves settled we can try to figure out that 1pm tour if we want. We will leave depending on how much we want to see. We will hope to high heaven there's something to eat, I've heard someone say there's a row of restaurants nearby, but we should probably bring a snack just in case.

We'll meet at the Grand Concourse of Grand Central near the information booth. My phone number will be emailed to everyone a day or two beforehand. Please check your spam folders if you don't get it by the morning of the meetup.
