Once upon a time in the beautiful city of Seattle, Rice alumni would gather every month over beers. The tradition is back, on the last Thursday or Friday of each month.
I will send out a reminder email once or at most twice per month. The initial email went out to all Rice alumni whom I found through the online directory, residing or working in Seattle, Redmond, Bellevue, or Kirkland as of July 2004. Please email me (see below) if you'd rather not receive email; receive it at a different address; or would like to be added to my list.
We get together for beers and food on the last Thursday or Friday of almost every month, usually at the Roanoke Tavern. The Roanoke is easily accessible from I-5 and the 520, and parking in the area is easy.
|????:||Sorry, no more "Beer at the Roanoke"...|
We had an email vote (in Aug 2004) to choose between Thurdays and Fridays. The vote was exactly tied. So I voted for Thurs, motivated by alumni reminiscing of Thurs Beer Bike practices. And then (Apr 2005) my yoga class got moved to Thursday nights, so as organizer and benevolent dictator I decided to accommodate the other half of the voters by switching to Friday for a while.
If you know of other events that may be of interest to the local Rice alumni community, let me know and I'll include them in my monthly email. I aim to mail out the letter a week or two before each happy hour, so keep that in mind in deciding when to send me a notice.
