Come have a drink with Nieman Lab!

After the never-ending winter, something like spring has finally sprung in the Northeast. And with a little warmth in the air, it’s a great time to kick back and have a brew with your favorite Nieman Lab staffers.

We’re having our second-ever Lab happy hour Wednesday (that’s May 18) for our Boston-area readers and friends. Like last time, we’ll be 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. Come join us!

Joshua Benton is the senior writer and former director of Nieman Lab. You can reach him via email (joshua_benton@harvard.edu) or Twitter DM (@jbenton).
