Come have a drink with Nieman Lab!

Do you ever come to the end of a workday and think: My day would be better — would be complete — if I could share a beverage with the Nieman Lab crew?

Here’s your chance. We’re having our first Lab happy hour Wednesday (that’s April 6) for our Boston-area readers and friends, at The Field.

That’s just a few steps away from the Central Square stop on the Red Line, so anyone near a T station should be able to get there without too much trouble. Here’s a map.

Nothing formal — just a chance for people interested in the future of news to get together. We’ll get there around 6 p.m. and stick around until at least 8, maybe later. The first 10 people to come say hi to me get a free beer. The next 10 get a talking-to about the importance of punctuality. The next 10 get a handshake. Anyone after that: a knowing nod.
