Recap of June 22nd

Improv, and Drinking About Museums. What could be a better combination? Not much, it turns out. Jen Oleniczak, of the Engaging Educator, was there to talk about improv, and of course, to make us all get up and do stuff. She laughs a lot, and is even more of a hoot in person than she is online.

Special guest, Jen Oleniczak, of The Engaging Educator.

She brought swag, too.

Again, if anyone has suggestions of a new location that doesn’t mind a crowd that can range from 8 – 40 people and has a bar, we’d love to hear it.  Or if you are interested in hosting the gang at your museum followed by a visit to a local establishment, please let us know.

Hope to see you there!
