First of all - thanks for all the extra perspectives on the exchange between the museum director. It really did help a lot. I think I can understand where she was coming from now, but I'm still not sure that changes my overall feelings about what happened. Oh well. I think time is the best medicine in this situation. We'll address it again at the business meeting in a few months.

I tried to start a discussion about alternate event ideas on the DFWCG yahoo list, but you guys seem to get oddly shy over there, so feel free to give me feedback here if that is easier. I think I'm leaning toward the Plano Farmstead for our first attempt, and then Old City Park, and the a tearoom if those don't pan out. And the only reason that I'm putting the tearoom last is because we are supposed to have another tea later in the summer, so I'd kind of like to save that for later. BTW, Chestnut Square is out because they have farmers markets there every Saturday. I don't know of any other historical sites off the top of my head, but there might be some that I'm overlooking.

I'd suggest the Dallas Arboretum, but admission is $10 and parking is $7, so we might as well save our money and go have a nice tea party! (BTW, we need to talk about this in regards to the Georgian Picnic! I don't think people realized that admission was that much when we voted on locations!) There are probably other public parks that we could meet at for free, but it's memorial day weekend, so I expect most parks to be crowded, which could suck.

After that, I'm out of ideas, other just just hosting a party at my house... which I am definitely willing to do, but it's just not as exciting. Do you guys have any other suggestions?
