Come have a drink with Nieman Lab!

Drop in on our happy hour Wednesday at The Field, in Cambridge’s Central Square.

For those who us who live in the northeastern United States, there aren’t too many nice-weather days left in the calendar year — the snows and chills of winter are walking up the driveway and headed to our doors. So why not spend one of our remaining nice days having some beers (or something warmer) with Nieman Lab?

We’re having another one of our quasi-monthly Lab happy hours on Wednesday, November 9 for our Boston-area readers and friends. We’ll be at our old favorite bar The Field, which is just a few steps away from the Central Square stop on the Red Line — so it’s a quick easy ride for anyone near a T stop. Here’s a map.

Predicted high temperature on Wednesday: 64 degrees. There won’t be too many more of those!

As with our previous happy hours, nothing too formal — just a chance for people of a future-of-news-ish mindset to meet and have a few beverages. We’ll show up around 6 p.m. and stick around until at least 8 — probably later, judging on the past. And if you’re lucky, I might have a few extra Fuego buttons to give away so that you, too, can acknowledge the existence of its posse.
