First Thursday, Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford CT

  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Friends -- I (Debbie) will be out of state for this First Thursday (going to Mardi Gras, baybee!), but am setting up this event so you all can go and have fun anyway! See above for meetup time/place.

---

First Thursday: Sing Me A Song

Join us for an A Cappella Sing-Off, make your own music video with Young! Studios, and join a docent for a Collection Focus Talk. 

6 pm: Collection Focus Talk: Join a docent for a 20 minute exploration of Thomas Dewing’s The Days, 1884-1886. Meet at the Information Desk.

8 pm, film: Philomena

Join us the first Thursday of every month for extended exhibition hours, music, cocktails, food, art activities, a film and more!

----

$5 per person. Free for Wadsworth Atheneum members.

This is a very flexible event. People come and go as they please. I find these to usually be very full evenings, so I usually go as close to 5:00 as possible, but if you can't get there until 6:00 or need to leave at 8:00, please still consider coming for the time you're available!

    I enjoyed the event. Used my cell phone to view the pics to see who was in the crowd. I eventually was able to see some of the hiking enthusiasts.

    Thanks for clearing that up. It was enjoyable and I'm planning to attend future events.

      Excellent. In my experience, these things become increasingly fun as you get to know the folks in the group, so please do keep coming back!

    It being my first event, I had not anticipated there would be no identifying 'check-in' station in as much as I was required to join online in order to reserve a spot. No matter, I was able to discover a few Meetup members as I circulated.

      You weren't *required* to do anything. It's a public event, so no reservation was necessary and no spot was held for you, but I'm glad you went anyway. These are great events, whether solo or with a crowd.

      There was a meet-up point listed when I posted the event, same as last month's First Thursday, but it doesn't show now, which I suspect is the result of a Meetup.com service disruption x 5 days with possible related glitches. Thanks to Jason for posting his ph # as a fall-back way of finding each other. Wish I could've been there with you all!

      Like I said on the first line of the description, I was away on vacation during this time, so I did the best I could to keep in touch, but I got home at 1:30 this morning and this is the first I've heard about the Meetup.com snafu.

      I am psyched to see that so many people enjoyed this event, glad some of you managed to find each other despite the system glitch, and hope to see you at another First Thursday/Hfd Area Hiking event!

    Can't make this Thurs but is this going to be monthly event??

    March 5, 2014

    • Jason

      Wadsworth does it monthly. Whether or not someone makes it an event in some Meetup is another question.

    I "cross-RSVP'd" for this event with a movie meet-up I'm a member of. See you there.
