Social Events

Opening Night Social

The opening night social is on Wednesday October 12 at House of Targ.

Join us from 6 to 9 pm. For food and drink, there will be a buffet of traditional and vegetarian perogies, with a cash bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options, including local craft brews.

But even better: House of Targ has a ton (okay, over 30) pinball and classic arcade games and it’s free play for the whole three hours we’re there. If you’ve saved up your quarters, feel free to linger after 9 and keep playing.

House of Targ is about 2 km from the Carleton University campus, a 20 to 30 minute walk.

To get there by bus, take the 7 bus from Carleton University (direction: St-Laurent) to the Bank / Sunnyside stop, about an 8-minute trip. The 7 bus (direction Carleton) will also get you there from downtown, about a 20-minute ride.

Conference Reception

The conference reception will be on Thursday Oct 13 from 6 pm at the Mill Street Brewery Ottawa Brew Pub. We’ll have appetizers and snacks to fill you up and a cash bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options. Since it’s a brew pub, there will be a selection of Mill Street’s seasonal and specialty beers.

We’re still figuring out the details of the night’s entertainment, but we’re planning for something that remote attendees can join in. Stay tuned!

From campus, the best way to get to the Brew Pub by bus is on the 10 route. Take the 10 from the Carleton University stop to the Bay / Queen stop, about a 15 min trip, followed by a walk to the Brew Pub, about 750 m.
