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!
