When: Thursday, June 19, 2014, 5:30PM – 7:00PM
Where: 501 E Madison Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46225
Summer is upon us and it’s time to enjoy a local brew or three. There’s no agenda, just come out and have a good time (maybe prepare a short Pecha Kucha about how your coworkers don’t understand you).
Come one and come all. Bring your friends from your firm or from your days back in school. This will be a great time to meet some of your architectural peers, complain about work their firm has done, or ask for an inside scoop on who is hiring. If you have never attended a YAF event this would be a great time to start. Remember there is no fee to join YAF and you don’t have to be a member of AIA either.
See you there. (Eventbrite link!)
When: Tuesday, August 13, 2013, 5:30PM – 7:00PM
Where: The Rathskeller, 401 E Michigan St, Indianapolis, IN 46204
It’s finally here, drinks and discussion in The Rathskeller Beirgarten. It’s the best place to enjoy the best beer in Indy. There’s no agenda, just come out and have a good time.
If you’ve never been to the Rathskeller, attendance is mandatory. You should also order a pretzel with mustard, it’s not spicy at all… Also, If you’ve never been to YAF, attendance is mandatory. There will never be a meeting better than this one to get to know some of your architectural peers.
We’ll meet out back in the beer garden. You can park in the Athenaeum’s lot or anywhere along the street, there are even some free spots on East St.
See you there.
