Hi everyone,

We're only days away from #c4l15 (how did it get to February so fast this
year?) The social events committee has been hard at work in getting events
and lists around, and you can see what's going on during the conference at

One event that we wanted to point out is the Newcomer Dinner on Monday,
February 9th. Will this be your first time at the conference? Or are you a
c4l veteran looking to corrupt some newbies? Join fellow c4l newbies and
veterans for an evening of food, socializing, and stimulating
demonstrations of the many uses of LibGuides alternatives.

The details are at
There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, so there should be plenty of
options to go around. This year we are trying something new - we are using
Google Docs for sign up; no wiki account required to sign up for a dinner
group. The link is posted under the Newcomer Dinner section of the wiki
(one extra click, but getting y'all in the habit to check the social events
wiki page ;c) )

Another event that we want you to know is the Craft Brew Drinkup on
Tuesday, February 10th. When we say "Craft Brew" we mean it - beer, soda,
even tea - if it is (or can be) brewed, it will be here! You supply the
brew and snacks (some more snacks would be greatly appreciated!), the host
will supply the drinkware. More details, including a place to list what you
want to bring (and a wish list of what you want there), is at
This event is limited to 200 people, so if you haven't done so, please
register for the Drinkup at

We are also planning a Game Night Wednesday evening starting at 6 pm! Head
over to the Grand Ballroom in the hotel and get your game on. There are a
range of games to choose from; take a look at and see what's there, and let us
know if you want to bring something along!

For you early birds, run4lib is back this year:
has the schedule and routes listed. This is your chance to burn off some of
that good food that you'll be eating at the Newcomer Dinner ;c)

There are other events to look at as well: #libtechwomen, OCLC Dev house,
local events (including theater, music, and a film festival!)... and a cat
cafe that just opened last month. All this and more are listed on the
Social Activities page.

Lastly, if you see a local event that you want to go to with fellow
attendees or want to suggest an event, please feel free to edit the wiki!
The fun part about this conference is that you are almost always likely to
find partners in crime that have similar interests  Post your event to the
wiki (or listserv), and they will come :cD

Go forth and sign up! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll see
you all soon.

Thanks again,
Becky, on behalf of The Social Activities Committee
