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.

DUPA organized several events in August and September: we had a successful first Duke Diversity Postdoc Alliance Social on August 16, the monthly Pubnight at Fullsteam on the 26th, and the Duke Football Tailgate on Sept 3rd! Below are some pictures.
On July 18, a great turnout of Duke postdocs and families watched the Durham Bulls play the Pawtucket Red Sox at the Bulls stadium. This annually returning family friendly outing featured dollar concession night at the ballpark with cheap hotdogs, fries and popcorn, of course on a really hot mid-summer’s night! To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie Bull Durham, there was even a race of the movie’s main characters.
