MoMA on Sunday anyone?

Hey everyone!

I know most of you already live in NYC - or nearby - and have access to the museum anytime you like, but I've been wanting to see the MoMA forever!!!!

I'm hoping to spend a few hours there on Sunday - maybe from 1 - 3 pm give or take a few hrs. here or there.

If anyone is interested let me know :)

Hey Heather,
Not sure if you will get anyone that would be keen to join you. As this weekened will be enough for all I am sure. But I am up for meeting you for lunch before the show on Sunday. As some of my DJs that I want to see start at like 3.30pm.

I'm a MoMA member which means my friends can get 5 dollar tickets (instead of $20).

Believe it or not, I've never been to the MoMa either, at least not to look at the art. Pretty bad... something I've been meaning to fix actually.

I was ducking out of the Zoo for Sunday due to other obligations but a bit of midtown art-looking and maybe a bite to eat sounds cool with me. I think the museum is actually open pretty early so it may be possible for the Zoo crew to go early in the interest on getting to the festival earlier. Although dragging your butts out of bed may be an issue, especially if you do what I plan to do all night... maybe if we go early enough to the museum the drugs will still be kicking(just kidding!).

You can contact me if this sounds of interest to you. The MoMA is something like 3 stops on the F train from Roosevelt Island so this plan is acutually pretty realistic. I'll be scooting to BK after this but that's my problem.

Awesome Albert!!! $5 compared to $20 is total dopeness.
I think Patrick wanted to go too.

How does 1 pm on Sunday sound to everyone? We could spend a couple of hours inside and then part ways for the remainder of the day light hours (for those not going to EZ)...and hopefully all meet up again on Sunday night?

My number is 419-308-8677.

For anyone interested in going to MoMA for an hour or two on Sunday, I think the current plan is to be there by 1 / 1:30 pm and stay until about 2:30 / 3 - then heading back over to EZ for the rest of the day :)

Albert rocks and offered to get us $5 tickets :)

I can only get 5 tickets at that price so if a whole drove turns up I can't help all of you. Priority is going to have to go to those I know already- friends first, we'll have to draw straws for the rest. If we had some other MoMA members up in here this could turn into a party though! It's actually cheaper for one person to buy a membership($75) then get in for free, then get 5 friends in for $5, for a total of $100, then it is for the 6 to pay separately, which comes to $120. Maybe the $5 people and the full price people can work out some democratic system where everyone pays less, but I am not paying myself- sorry, I already did. Also, I plan, although this is stretching it, to aim for 12ish- the MoMA is huge and it would be nice to see something. Don't worry about the cheap tickets, just shoot me a text when you turn up and I'll come down. 205 356 9988 for those that don't have it yet. See you this weekend.

Oh ooops - sorry about that Albert!! I should have asked your permission before posting.

I don't think there will be a large crowd. Maybe three of us at most.

There's no way you could've known- I didn't know myself until I checked! Don't worry about it... worst thing that could happen is there's one or 2 extra peeps and everyone pays a few bucks extra. The $5 thing is awfully good though... want some discounts on MoMA gift shop stuff too? It seems to me we may likely already have the 5 though so some diplomacy may be in order... I don't want to scare people away. It's a deal at twice the price, unless you want to hit it up Friday afternoon when it's free and also a total zoo... not my stylees, I must say.
