Notes on a Conference: Day One
Maybe, if you’re even considering going to an 8am session you should reconsider spending the late hours of the evening prior enjoying the whiskey and grilled cheese bar just down the block from your lodgings. But sometimes it is just too nice of a night, and you can go out without a coat on, and you tell yourself you’re just going for a nightcap. And if you stay for more than one drink, don’t worry, because good friends, and good conversation, and laughing inappropriately loud in a bar full of bearded gentlemen sipping whiskey is well worth missing some early morning talks.
And you may think that there are an inordinate amount of sessions on fluvial morphology, but really there are like five. That may still seem like a lot, but you know, whatever people are into…
And do remember, if you want to meet handsome, intelligent men from the Netherlands, do attend sustainable transportation session, specifically those focusing on bicycling.
And don’t forget to take off your name badge before leaving the conference venue. How embarrassing to be waltzing around Manhattan with your lanyand name tag still on!
