Sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm going to have to change the date of our meetup to Sunday the 19th. Same time and place. Apparently there's some new grad student social event on Friday that I'm expected to attend that I just found out about. Sorry again for the confusion and getting your hopes up if you could attend Friday but not Sunday.
If it's any consolation, Sunday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. The Seamonster Lounge seems like a very appropriate place to celebrate this Pastafarian holiday with a bunch of heathens.
