Details

Such a deal!!! The First Friday of the Month is FREE from 5 to 8!!!!! So it's a fab FREE meetup.

The reality is we will be Looking for the Lost Language of Hands (this is a camouflaged art lesson), . . . as well as having a lot of fun. So here is what will happen. First will be a small art lesson that explains what and why we are doing this (spoiler: it's all about the hands).

People will then break people off into groups of 5 (or so). One person on the team will be responsible to sending photos of your items (the team with the most and best photos wins).

Any time you run into another team you may take one of their members . And other teams may take a member from you. So this means during the course of the game you will meet lots of folks and more than just your team. After all, . . . it's a meetup So this is how we do it!!

If the person sending the pix gets taken. Just pick a new one.

And then AFTER we will adjourn to Grdn WineBar and figure the winners.

Itinerary

6:15 to 8:00 PM Scavenger Hunt @ Norton Simon Museum

8:00 PM to 2AM The GRDN Winebar to figure out winners. 26 E Colorado

And yes, . . . The whole museum part is FREE!!!!

The Winebar part is on you

Can kids come? To the Museum part yes: Yes.
To the bar? Only if your kids are over 21.

Parking: That's the question everybody ask. This is the Norton Museum Free Day (from 5 to 8). So that means it will be packed. The closer you get there to 5:30 you may find a spot. Your best bet is take the street parking as soon as you get off the freeway. The Museum closes at 8 so you will have to get out the lot and go to The Cellar

The address below will take you to a public structure located just behind the winebar.

36 S Fair Oaks Ave

This one is across from that 62 Mills Pl, Pasadena, CA 91105

And this one is across Colorado on the north side of the street from the Winebar

30 Union St, Pasadena, CA 91103

In other words there are plenty of structures and street parking. FEED THE METER if you park on the street. AND the meters run till midnight too.

BUT WAIT!!! The train!!! Take the train!! Gold Line and get off at Del Mar or City Hall then Uber it.

And yes, . . .the museum is aware we come and do this. So it's not like we will get in trouble. But we still have to behave (a little bit).

I know, . . .it's at 6 on a Fri. Don't worry. If you live on Westside there are museums there.

Final note: This event no +1. This means if you have a guest just have them RSVP. This way we are all coming on our own.

Come on your own and leave with friends.
