What would Erin and I do for love? Freeze, apparently (it was really, really cold and windy getting this pic)! We hear the weather is going to warm up this weekend, so it should be perfect—the Wikipedia Loves Art Brooklyn Museum meetup is scheduled for this Saturday. Come to Target First Saturday (2/7/09 5-11pm) and when you get to the lobby, look for our table with this sign. It should be a great opportunity for us all to say hello. And, hey, if you register in advance and bring your camera we’ll make sure you have a box of Conversation Hearts with your name on it!
