Meet-up *this Thursday* at the Prado after the Nat Hist Museum tour!

Some of those who are attending the Natural History Museum tour this Thursday, March 21, will be meeting up afterward at the Prado Restaurant in Balboa Park.  So if you’re attending the tour and you’d like to stay, or if you’d just like to stop by after work, feel free to come on by for a drink and some networking!  The tour is expected to end around 5 pm.

*Please note that this is an informal meet-up, so no tables will be reserved for this one.  The bar does tend to fill up with theatergoers, so get there as early as you can if you want a seat.*

Thanks!
