I will send my mom this info.

If you're going, let me know. I'll send you my parents' address and phone number. You'll get fed some seriously good food, courtesy of my dad. Trust me on this. :-)

Likely one of my aunts knows about this and will attend. This same aunt ran for Albuquerque City Council last election cycle. Warning: Aunt is no conservative/Republican, even though both of my parents are both (though all would be very interested in this subject). But you will likely be able to engage in stimulating, intelligent conversation with all three. Plus I know that they would take care of you because you are my friend. :-)
