Friday Night (April 11, 2008)

Time: 7:00 pm

The conference will kick off with an opening conference reception at the Philadelphia Museum of Art at 26th Street and the Ben Franklin Parkway. The Museum has live jazz music playing on Friday evenings, and food and drinkis available.

MAWCA attendees can talk and mingle with each other, or explore the museum. All of the galleries will be open, including a special exhibit of works by Frida Kahlo.

Admission to the Museum reception will be free, however, space is limited to 100 people. If you would like to attend the reception at the museum, please indicate this when you register for the conference. Alternatively, please email Lori Salem to reserve a space.

Saturday Night (April 12, 2008)

Time: Starting at 6:30

When the conference (and the MAWCA board meeting) are over, we'll be ready to celebrate! Join us for Night-Seeing in Center City. (You know, it's like "sightseeing" only it happens after dark?) You can come by yourself, with a partner, or with a group of friends.

We've planned two walking tours--one that includes pubs and one that doesn't--that meet up along the way. Our stops will include some of Philly's better-known, lesser-known, and ought-to-be-known restaurants, bars, streets, parks and shops. We won't have a final list of destinations until closer to the conference--gotta do our due diligence and sample everything on those drinks menus--but a complete map will be included in your conference folder and posted on the website.

The walking tours will be informal and pay-as-you-go; however, we would still like to know in advance if you plan to attend so that we can plan appropriately. You can let us know on the conference registration form.
