Note from Eric:

I decided on the Field Friend Membership ($25.00 online).  I then called and reserved my Happy Hour ticket.

I attended the Happy Hour on Jan. 31.  Nice location, easy free parking at the back entrance.  The new building attached to the house is something to see.  They had a very nice spread of hors d’oeuvres (hot meatballs, slice salami, vegetable tray, assorted crackers, several dips, delicious deserts) plus wine, beer, soda… Also included was a guided tour of the Field House and full access to the museum.

I can now go to the rest of the Happy Hours for Free (5 more this year).

Join me at the next History Happy Hour in the Field House Museum.  I’ll be in the elegant library with a glass of wine.
