Some FAQs:
Yes: Admission is FREE! 
Yes: There will be a dance floor. 
Yes: Bring the family and a picnic and chairs if you wish. It's totally family friendly. 
Yes, the weather looks terrific. If we need to change (which seems very unlikely) we will announce by Friday afternoon. There is a rain site so the show will go on!
Yes: There will be food, drinks and ices available and there are lots of restaurants and convenience stores within a couple of hundred yards of the museum if you don't find what you need here! Coolers are totally allowed, beer alas is not. Bring a shirt and get it printed on site! 
Yes: Parking is available at the Hyde Park Christian Church about 1/8 of a mile east of us on 45th street. There's also the Fresh Plus parking lot at 43rd & Ave G. Please be kind to our residential neighbors. Better yet, BIKE OR BUS! There are SEVEN Capitol Metro bus lines that stop within a 1/4 mile of here! Opa!
