Nieman Journalism Lab meetup: This Saturday in Boston’s Back Bay

As I’ve mentioned before, this weekend will be the Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism, at the Sheraton Boston. (Pre-registration has closed, although there’ll be walkup registration at the event Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.)

While the thrust of the weekend is narrative, we’ll be there too. (You’ll see some products of that here next week.) But in the meantime, we want to get together with any of our readers who will be at the conference, or just in the neighborhood.

So, dear Lab readers, please come by our informal happy hour, starting at about 5 p.m. Saturday at the hotel bar at the Sheraton Boston. I think it’s called SideBar, which for our crowd would imply there’s a newsier bar next door that’s 30 inches longer. (I kid.) Nothing formal, but Zach, Ted, and I will be there to say hello, swap stories, and chat about where we’ll all eventually get the money to pay for things like drinks and conferences. We’ll be the handsome guys with the name tags. See you there.
