If so, come out and meet your fellow postdocs and graduate students at the Duke Diversity Postdoc Alliance Social.  Snacks and beer will be provided.

DUPA November pub night November 22nd

The Duke University Postdoc Association (DUPA) pub night for June will be at Bull City Burger and Brewery (107 East Parrish Street, Durham) Friday November 22nd from 6pm. We have a table reserved out the back on the patio with a couple of “towers of power” set up and I’ll try to make a sign out of a Duke Postdocs t-shirt.

Please feel free to bring your partners and family! For those coming from campus who don’t want to drive, the bar is easily accessible from the Magnum Street stop of the Bull City Connector or walking distance from the Durham Bus Station.

If you’ve never been to Bull City Burger and Brewery, you can check them out online here:

RSVP on Facebook so I know how many towers to get:
