Monday, May 6th
11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Lunch at Curry House with Gary Lincoff and Patrick Leacock followed by a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Field Museum’s fungal herbarium
Join Patrick Leacock as he unlocks the behind-the-scenes area of the Field Museum’s herbarium in Gary Lincoff’s honor. This special event, limited to 20 IMA members, is a unique opportunity to join these gifted mycologists as they explore the museum’s specimens and special exhibits.
Meet us for a $10.95 buffet lunch at Curry House (899 S Plymouth Ct Chicago) at 11:30 a.m.
For those who would like the option of attending the tour without the lunch, please meet us at the West Door at 1:00 PM, instead of at the restaurant.
Following lunch, please park in the Soldier Field Garage next to the Field Museum. Patrick has generously offered to provide parking passes for those on the tour, which will allow you to exit the garage without paying the normal parking fee. That’s a $22 value!
Also, car-pooling is recommended, because those parking passes do cost the department money. Public transportation is available from downtown State Street via 146 bus, or a 20 minute walk.
