Yes: There will be food, drinks and ices available and there are lots of restaurants and convenience stores within a couple of hundred yards of the museum if you don't find what you need here! Coolers are totally allowed, beer alas is not. Bring a shirt and get it printed on site! 
Yes:  Parking is available at the Hyde Park Christian Church about 1/8 of a mile east of us on 45th street. There's also the Fresh Plus parking lot at 43rd & Ave G. Try not to park in front of people's houses if you're in the street. Better yet, BIKE OR BUS! Thanks very much!
