An important part of any conference is the social activities; and they generally mainly happen on a Friday night at SINI. A small group of us (Peter, Scott, Margaret and Eric) ventured out to Max’s Taphouse at Fell’s Point (http://www.maxs.com/). We went over by water taxi (I’m not keen on the new split route with transfers), and then a short walk up Broadway on Fells Point. We tried a wide selection of excellent beers, including Christmas ales, IPAs, stouts, and Belgian beers. The food was absolutely excellent, with very generous portions – we had a selection including steamed shrimps, garlic mussels (with lots of chopped garlic), hummus, foot-long chili dogs, and cajun quesadillas (crab and Andouille). After a trip back on the water taxi, the evening was rounded off by a tipple of very nice Glenfiddich.

The traditional CARING dinner – organised once again by Sue Newbold – also took place last night (Friday) at Chiapparelli’s (http://www.chiapparellis.com/) in Little Italy. By all accounts, it was a good evening, with close to 80 people attending.
