First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum - TONIGHT!

My best wishes to everyone - I hope you all are safe and doing well in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I plan to spend tomorrow volunteering at a shelter - please contact me if you are interested in info on that. In the meantime, I thought it would be nice to get out and get to the Brooklyn Museum tonight for First Saturdays (free). Let's meet inside the entrance/lobby between 5 and 5:15 pm. I'll email my phone number to those who rsvp yes. Also, when you're looking for me, I have short hair now! Hope to see you there. -Joanna
