Agreed. And London is so long ago i don't even remember ;-)

Some years ago i thought it should be easy to do this right:

  - No loud disco music
  - Some lights to see faces
  - Provide seating options
  - organize food to allow more than one line
  - choose a museum venue only if you can actually see more of it than 
    a single banquet room. Else just rent a banquet room.

But yes, this is the first social that i can remember, where all the
points where done right.
Raising the bar in more places *grin* And most of it probably not even a
cost factor, just don't have a disco fan organize the social (sorry to
any listening disco queens ;-).

What is a cost factor i bet is to get such an excellent museum to open
up such a large part of its exhibition. Man! they should not have told
us about the WiFi in the museum, they should have recommended for us to
bring GPS ;-) I am so glad that i finally made it into the museum. Last
time i tried when i was in Philly i could only do the Rocky as i bounced
off the entrance (museum full).

Oh, yes, and great padded bag!

Thanks a lot
