Since I was local, I decided to host an Ironic Social so everyone had a chance to get to know each other better outside of “work”. It proved to be harder than I thought to find a place close to the convention center with a wide selection of beers, wine, and mixed drinks, and a varied-enough menu to satisfy those with dietary restrictions, and large enough to handle 30-40 people at once. I talked to several places and decided on the Waller Creek Pub House. It was bar-service only which seemed to be alright, despite some lines at first when 30 people showed up and wanted to order a drink or some dinner. The staff did their best to accommodate us along with their normal Thursday night crowd. It was well attended with at least 30 showing up. I hope everyone had a good time, I certainly did.
