Hey all! I thought it would be fun to go check out this month's MAD party at the New Britain Museum of American Art. I will plan on getting there at or a little before 8pm and will try to hang out near the entrance at the beginning so we can all meetup; however, last time I went there were quite a few people and a relatively long line to get in before the doors opened so please call my cell if you can't find us:[masked]-8351.
Here are the details from the NBMAA's website:
