The Social Activities Group is working on several events and social opportunities for after conference hours. We will be adding more events as they come along. Watch this page!

Also, if you find a cool event to go to, and want to share the wealth with others, feel free to add the event to the page. :)

Craft Brew Drinkup, Tuesday February 10th

When: Tuesday, February 10th @ 7pm

Where: eBay Offices - 1400 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97201

The Craft Brew Drinkup at Code4lib 2015 is all about sharing and enjoying good beer with fellow conference attendees. The idea is to bring bottles of your favorite beers.

While you're not obligated to bring local beers from wherever you're from, participants are definitely encouraged to bring beer that you think is special and might be somewhat hard for others outside your area to find. Homebrew is especially welcome.

This year, eBay has agreed to host the Code4Lib Drinkup at their offices in downtown Portland, a 6 block walk from the conference hotel. Attendees should expect to bring something to share. A wiki page will be set up for folks to share the brews and bottles you're thinking of bringing along and special requests can be made, but don't expect that your wishes will be granted.

Space is limited to the first 200 people who register.
