Saturday Banquet Reception

University of Pennsylvania, Museum of Archeology and Anthropology

With lots of things to do in Philadelphia, how do you decide where to spend some time? Fortunately, our SPR banquet will be held at the Penn Museum of Archeology and Anthropology. In between strolling the gardens, listening to jazz, and catching up with friends old and new, you can investigate the material cultures of Ancient Egypt, Meso- and South American, Africa, China, the Mediterranean and Middle East. The museum will be open to us Saturday evening from 6pm to midnight. There will be refreshing cocktails, passed light hors d’oeuvres, and buffet stations interspersed among the exhibits. From nine o’clock to midnight, SPR’s resident “Ph.DJ.,” Mike Constantino, will be rocking the sarcophagi with music and dancing!
Conference registrants are eligible for a discounted ticket ($35) to the Saturday evening banquet at the Archeology Museum.
