WHAT: DUPA Pub Night
WHEN: Fourth Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm
WHERE: FullSteam Brewery, Riggsbee Ave, Durham

Hello Fellow Postdocs,
The Duke University Postdoc Association (DUPA) now sponsors a regular pub night every fourth Thursday at Fullsteam Brewery. Meet and join fellow postdocs for a good time in a relaxed atmosphere and, if you desire, trivia at 9 pm. As Fullsteam is often busy, it is hard to say where we will be exactly, but we will attempt to take over a table in the main area around the stage. Look for a small table sign saying “Duke Postdocs” on one of the long tables. DUPA will provide a limited number of drinks starting at 7:30; food trucks will be on site if you want food.
Hope to see you there!
Jeff Blackinton, DUPA Social Chair (jeff.blackinton@duke.edu)
