Snacks department

  • we aren't feeding the masses on saturday, other than light snacks. have a dinner break.
  • is some bar available nearby? Or do we need to bring all along with us?
  • Keg of beer for Saturday?
    • Buying some beer and having it hacklab has been okayed by hacklab.
    • We have to be reasonable about it though. But getting a bottle of beer or two for each attendee is probably ok. Doing it on the sunday might be cheaper. Any input?
  • Any wishes for snacks?
  • Group-lunch on sunday somewhere nearby? possibly bring in pizza/sandwiches
  • should we buy and get stuff on our own or use a caterer?
    • I2P might sponsor a I2P-folks dinner, other than that, you're on your own
    • Friday night would be best for the I2P dinner
  • Thursday night bar meetup? Sadie suggests http://getwellbar.com/
