IONiC Social Hour Sunday Evening, ACS

Submitted by Nancy Scott Burke Williams, Scripps College, Pitzer College, Claremont McKenna College
Event Date: 
03/16/2010 (All day) to 03/20/2010 (All day)
Event Description: 
Are you going to the ACS meeting in San Francisco? If so, at last year's spring meeting, we held a social hour for the IONiC community (up to over 300 faculty members now!) and we enjoyed it so much we’re going to do it again, this time at the Thirsty Bear, a Spanish tapas/brew place. We have our own room, so just tell them you’re with IONiC at the front door. We’ll gather there after the session ends on Sunday about 5:15-5:30. It’ll be a great opportunity to get some food and build community in a more relaxed atmosphere before heading back in for the poster session. It’s located just a half-block from the Moscone Center, so getting there and back again should be no problem. The address is: 661 Howard Street San Francisco, CA 94105 See you there!
