This month I want to try something new with all of you. I want to get together with you and do it in a museum, in a lecture hall and then in Grant Park. Yeah, with you, and you, too… and you… yes, all of you sexy mofos, in broad daylight.Â And no, my husband’s not coming.
Oh, I’m sorry, did that sound dirty?Â I was talking about … a meet-up.Â I want to have a meet-up at the Field Museum then get sauced and play frisbee (or volleyball or tag or croquet or quarters or dice … ) in Grant Park.
There’s going to be a kick-ass lecture being given by Dr. Ian Tattersal, curator of Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History, at the Field Museum on Saturday, September 20.
Language and Signs as Indicators of Evolution
Join Dr. Ian Tattersall as he challenges the role of natural selection in the development of the human symbolic mind. Hear about the recent innovations in the fields of biology and culture that have led him to his conclusions and learn how this impacts the future of human evolution. This program is developed in collaboration with the Leakey Foundation.

Free with Museum admission.
The lecture will be at the Montgomery Ward Lecture Hall.Â Call 312-665-7400 to make your reservations.
Afterward, I was thinking we could wander the museum for a while, learn some shit then go to the park and have a skeptical picnic party.Â We can talk about the things we learned at the museum and drink and eat and spread skepticism throughout the Loop!
Who’s with me?
