MFA First Friday

Let's meet out in the lobby in front at the main entrance at 6pm. near the statue of Orpheus and Cerberus (3 headed dog). Then we will head in at 6:10 to make sure we get in. We will congregate and get some tables to the left near the big cube with the poster, which has the stairs and the elevator behind it.

Try not to be late, as it fills up quickly and then they stop letting people in. I am BIll, 6'4".

The cost of museum entry is $25, but if people  have dual memberships they can get others in for free, so if you have a dual let us know via meetup comments, or RSVP comment.

I will usually email my phone # before the event to attendees so if you miss us in the foyer you can call or text (preferred) if you can't find us when/if you get in.   Look at everyone's pictures so we know who is going.  I will try to bring a copy of the pictures and will keep an eye out to say hi & introduce people.

BE SURE TO GET THERE EARLY, AS THE PLACE FILLS UP AND THEY TURN PEOPLE AWAY.  You need a license or Mass ID to enter.

Please change your RSVP if you can not make it.

We can go out after for food or drinks at a convenient location, such as a restaurant on Huntington Ave.

    One thing that others may have noticed was that the music was excessively loud.

    November 2, 2013

    • Ron R.

      I've informed them of this problem many times. They know it. They are looking for a younger, louder demographic than us, but at least they know about it. I carry earplugs with me.

    Very nice group of people. Didn't dance at all because I was captivated in a conversation with Susan C.

  • Kathy N.

    It was great. I met some nice people, good conversation, great food and danced to some sixties music.

    I have the flu, so I do not think it is a good idea to come this time.
    Thank you, Ron, for your offer for the ticket. I hope someone else can benefit from this.

    • Ron R.

      does this also mean you're not buying me a drink?

      November 1, 2013

    • Blue E.

      Hi Ron...I would be happy to buy you a drink for a ticket...lol...though I won't be able to make it until 7:30 p.m. Is that too late? Let me know. Thanks Beverly

    I'm coming from Southborough without a ticket.

  • Ron R.

    Members, please get your tickets for this event in advance to guarantee admission -- there are two tickets needed for this: 1) Museum admission (free to members) and 2) an event ticket for First Friday, free to everyone. You can get that ticket #2 online at the mfa.org website.

    • Hank S.

      The ticket is free for MFA members. If you like the MFA and go at least three times a year the membership is a great idea. The patron membership is expensive -$2,500 - but the basic is only about $50.

      1 · October 31, 2013

    • Ron R.

      yes, Basic is about $75 - if you go more than 3x per year, it is a bargain. YOu get some other benefits, and a few guest passes, too. Hard to beat.

      October 31, 2013

  • Hank S.

    I am an MFA member and already have my ticket. Since I will not be able to leave my office until 6:15, I will not get to the MFA until about 6:45. I am easy to spot with my silver whiskers

    October 31, 2013

  • Ron R.

    I can also give two people a ride from Belmont or Watertown.

    October 28, 2013

    • Ron R.

      ok. you got it.

      October 30, 2013

  • Wendy

    This will be my first event. I do have a membership and am happy to offer my second ticket to someone. I will arrive early. Thanks.

  • Norma

    Hi...if anyone is a member, I would love to sneak in with you in exchange for a couple of drinks!
    Merci beaucoup!

    October 28, 2013

    • Ron R.

      I'll be at the entrance at 6pm.

      October 28, 2013

    • Paul H.

      See you at 6 pm if the MBTA is running well.

    Hi Paul. I would like tu use your guest pass.

    October 28, 2013

  • Paul H.

    Hi,
    I have a Museum of Science volunteer ID that allows me free general admission with a guest to the MFA, I used the ID to get into the MFA 1st Friday years ago, so I assume I can get myself and someone else in for free.

    October 28, 2013

  • Kathy N.

    Looking forward to Friday night. Plan to get there early.

    I haven't been to a 1st Friday at the MFA for a number of years, but it's a nice environment conducive to socializing. Looking forward to meeting you there.
