PBW 2008 - Saturday March 15th Schedule

Here is a slimmed-down view of just the events scheduled for Saturday the 15th. It's one last opportunity to change your mind! I will also denote where I will attempt to be during the day.

I've taken liberties to modify the descriptions for each event to conserve space. As always, refer to the official schedule of record over at PBW 2008 website for complete details.

** Where to find The Brew Lounge on 3/15:**
  • Running to Dock Street
  • Late MJ tasting at UPenn, not yet decided
  • Ides of March with Scoats and the crew, not yet ruled out
