Getting together before the conference “officially” begins:

For those of you arriving Tuesday night, places nearby that we would  
suggest getting together are the Old German Beer Hall (oldgermanbeerhall.com 
) or Turner Hall (historicturner.com).

On Wednesday night from 7-10pm, we have reserved the downstairs bar  
area of the Milwaukee Ale House (http://ale-house.com/alehouse/)!   
This is right on the Milwaukee River, about six blocks from the  
conference hotel.  If the weather is nice, they will also allow us to  
spill out on the deck.  There will be three menu options for dinner,  
all options for appetizers, and they brew their own beer!  This will  
be on your own monetarily, unfortunately – and will be a cash only  
event.  We REALLY hope to see a lot of you there!  It will be a really  
great informal way of breaking the ice before we all have to pretend  
to be professional.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me (Erin) at  
612-701-3714 or Elizabeth at 414-614-3266 (but preferably before 5pm  
US central time) – or email ehvizdak at uwm.edu.

Thanks everyone, looking forward to next week!!
