    do most folks go suit and tie or is it informal?

    April 7, 2013

    • Heather

      It's "cocktail attire"... so I'd recommend better than jeans, but only wear a suit and tie if you're comfortable. Some guys will be in suits, some will be in business casual.

    Is there anyone that hasn't been to this museum before? My favorite is the giant animal fossils, cRaZy stuff.

    Everybody ready for Sunday? I'm not sure where Nerd Fun will congregate once we're inside. There will be string quartets and such in the different museum rooms, silent auctions too I think. I'll be carrying my meetup sign and I'll pass out meetup stickers so you can roam around and know who's with us.
