Highlights from Drinking About Museums: 1/22/14

by Ed Rodley

Despite the bitter temperatures and a nagging cold on my part, Drinking About Museums happened last Wednesday, and seemed to be enjoyed by the 20-odd people who attended. A lot of new faces were there! At one point, we had three (!) evaluators in the room at the same time. The Hong Kong was as hospitable as ever, and it was after 10 before the last two people took themselves home. It was also Museum Selfie day around the world and our small contribution to the event was this:

Good looking group, even in the dark!

I put the strong arm on a bunch of people to sign up for February’s event. We’ll be trying out the Museums Showoff format again, and response has been gratifying. There are only a couple of slots left, so get your name in if you’re dying to show off in front of your colleagues. The signup form is here:

See you February 19th!

Next Drinking About Museums: BOS Jan 22nd, 6PM & more!

DAM-MOS

2013 was a banner year for Drinking About Museums. The concept went viral, and continues to spread across the globe! Don’t believe me? Check out here and here and here. (And there are more…) Closer to home, we have continued to grow, and in September, we experimented with a new format, Museums Showoff, and drew a bumper crop of new folks into the fold.  What are we gonna do to top that in 2014?

Plenty.

First, we’re announcing the next two months of events right now. Get your calendars and save the dates!

Drinking About Museums: Boston
Wednesday, January 22 at 6pm

Museums Showoff: Boston
Wednesday, February 19 at 6pm (Speakers start at 7pm)

Both events will be in Harvard Square at the fabulous Hong Kong Restaurant
1238 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

Second, we’re proposing a theme for the January event: Pop-up Museums. Interested in hearing more about them, dreaming one up, maybe even making our own DAM pop-up museum? Let’s talk… We’ll also talk about showing off in February, and whatever strikes your fancy.

Expect to get the hard sell from Jenn and me if you haven’t already volunteered or spoken at the September Show Off.

*******************************

Third, we’re going to Show Off again!
Our initial Museums Showoff drew a crowd of over 60 to the Hong Kong. Did it inspire you to grab your 9 minutes of glory? If you missed it last time, now is your chance to join in the fun on February 19!  Fill out the form below to claim your spot, or just come watch your colleagues. There are only ten slots, so don’t wait too long to decide!

Fourth, we’ll be rolling out a dedicated site in the near future. Rather than forcing you to wade through my blog or catch it on Twitter or Google+. We’ll continue to use every platform we can think of to spread the word, but we’ll try to build a more permanent home of DAM:BOS.
If you’re not on the mailing list already, you can sign up here.

Hope to see you there and as always, please let us know if you will be able to attend!
