Party til you puke, holiday-style

At long last the details have been set for the E&E/OBA/CEB/BSD holiday party, so here's the deal. The party will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, in the Stanley Field Hall balcony of the Field Museum.

I'm sure you have many questions about the party, so here are some answers for you...

1. How will I get to the party?

Well, we will have shuttle buses running from the Hull Court Archway on 57th Street to the Field Museum and back again. The first bus leaves at 6:30 p.m., and the second bus will leave at 6:45 p.m. From that point on, buses will leave from the archway every half hour. However, if you would prefer to drive, the Field Museum parking garage will be open. It will cost you $15 to park, however. But fear not. The shuttle bus as well as the party are free.

You should enter the museum at the south main entrance. Museum staff will greet you and direct you to the festivities.

2. What will be served?

On the fluid front, there will be beer, wine, and soda. It hasn't been determined yet, but there may be hard liquor as well. As for food, I've attached a menu.

3. What will there be to do at this here event?

Besides eating, drinking, and being merry, you also will have access to the Evolving Planet exhibit if you feel like checking out that bad boy.

4. What do you have to do to get in on this event?

You do need to RSVP to me by the end of the day this Wednesday, Nov. 22.

5. What will Jeff be wearing to this event?

Just a reminder that Jeff, along with other folks in the department, will be attending the E&E Bulls game outing this night. So if you are going to attend the Bulls game, please do not RSVP for the party. But I will be wearing a blue chiffon evening dress, Ann Taylor shoes, and a sequined Go Bulls nerf glove.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
