Do you want to know how to meet other postdocs? Well don’t answer! Because that was rhetorical and I’m going to tell you anyway!
Who: You. Other postdocs. Friends of postdocs. Me.
What: Postdoc Happy Hour
Where: Pino’s Wine Cellar (13 N 4th Ave, Highland Park)
When: 8PM every other Friday night. The next happy hour is on Sept 1st.
Why: Because you are a postdoc and you work too much! Step away from your work, meet other postdocs, and commiserate over some drinks!
This is the best way to get plugged into the community and make new friends. Every other week, you’ll meet others from all over the university. You’ll likely learn some new things and hopefully have a lot of laughs.
We usually stake out this very long table surrounded by (awkwardly tall) stools. I try to keep an eye out for wandering academics, but if you can’t find us try asking one of the bartenders. Many of them know who we are.
I hope to meet you soon!
PS. A bit about the host:
I’m Anthony, the PDA Social Outreach Coordinator and a Physics postdoc. I know, I’m as confused about this combination as you are 🙂
