As some of you may have noticed, the schedule for this year’s upcoming conference in Boston is slightly compressed into two days rather than three. In light of there no longer being a free evening, we here at SNAP Central have been pondering when to schedule the annual Pub Crawl. If you are new to the conference, the Pub Crawl is an event organized by ArLiSNAP to promote general introductions and levity amongst members. We normally round up a good-sized gaggle of librarians and head out into the night to explore whatever locale surrounds the conference hotel.
Our current idea is to have the event on Friday night. We’d leave the Convocation as a group and head to a TBD pub, but not crawl to multiple locations. This will allow others to find us if they’d like to join later, which has been an issue in the past. For lack of a better name, we’re currently thinking of this idea as a ‘Pub Stop.’
Please leave a comment below if you’re liking this idea (or not). We’re looking for a Boston local to suggest a pub in the vicinity of the hotel. Also someone please suggest a better name for the event.
