ALA MW '12 After-Hours Social Social event Offsite Location
LaGrange
Description :

The ALA Facebookers After-Hours event returns to Midwinter in Dallas (10:00 pm - 2:00 am, LaGrange: 2704 Elm St.)!

As usual, this will be the best-attended social event at the conference, so invite all your friends so they don't miss out!

There's a cover charge BUT we don't have to pay it. Librarians go straight through the silver doors to a separate room and NOT into the line where they will be asking for a cover.

It's only a few doors down from the Tweet-up at the Anvil Pub (which runs 7:30-10pm)! View the FB event at http://www.facebook.com/events/315294991825219/.
