Hi Ocean Beach Buddies - I've been interested in symbols, probably since hearing Joseph Campbell talk, so this docent lecture at the Legion sounds intriguing. If you are also interested in this topic, please join me!
Here is the lecture info: http://legionofhonor.famsf.org/calendar/docent-lecture-breaking-code-hidden-meanings-and-secret-messages-art-victoria-kirby
Let's meet early at 1pm and have lunch or coffee/tea /drink in the Museum Cafe and then head to the theater to hear the lecture, which starts at 2:15pm. The lecture is free but you must pay to get into the museum ($10 adults, $7 seniors). After the lecture people may want to stroll the museum. I'm not scheduling that part so it will be up to the attendees. As far as I can tell - the lecture is not associated with any particular exhibit.
I have found the Museum cafe to be reasonable and offer vegetarian food. Their description: "The Legion of Honor Café presents a serene environment for dining on soups, salads, sandwiches and hot entrees with a view of Lincoln Park and the Marin Headlands."
Let's meet by the Thinker statue outside the main entrance at 1pm - please be on time. We will head inside promptly at 1:10pm to pay and head to the cafe, which sometimes has a good line. If you miss me outside, look for me inside the cafe I guess, since I won't be waiting past 1:10pm.
Hope you can join me!
