Support your local museum: Eat!

Where did summer go? It feels like it just started. Although fall is right around the corner, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Join us on September 11, 2010 from 5-8 PM for an evening of great food and music at our first Firefly Picnic and Basket Auction.  Bid on a gourmet picnic dinner from a local restaurant and enjoy it on the lawn. Winning bidders receive dinner for four packed in a lovely basket with a picnic blanket.  Don’t worry if you don’t win, concessions will be available.
Live entertainment will be provided by Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan, Chicago’s premier gypsy-jazz band.  This acoustic band plays 1930s-style music of guitarist Django Reinhardt and they are really fantastic!  Check them out on their website and hear samples of their music here.
Proceeds from the event will help us to continue to provide free programing.  Previews of menus will be posted soon.  No reservations necessary, just come hungry and ready for a great time!
