And now, we're ready to rock your worlds again, nerd-style.  Catalyze Chicago & Polymathic are proud to present Makers' Field Day (Software VS. Hardware!), September 7th in Humboldt Park, in the field near the Boathouse at (enter at California/Evergreen and walk west -- you will see signs!).

Game on, right?

ITINERARY:

2pm-6pm: Field day activities, with coolers and snacks on hand. Please make sure to eat lunch before you arrive.  You will need the energy!  Please wear shoes suitable for athletic activity/being in a park!  

Cup & Spoon will be on hand with a booth for iced coffee, and One Tail at a Time will have a shaded tent so you can come play with puppies when you need a break.

6pm-whenever: Afterparty at The Living Room, 2423 W North Ave!  You may want to bring a change of clean clothes.  Dinner (hotdogs, burgers, veggie burgers, etc.) and booze will be provided. Please note: this event is BYOC (bring your own craft beer) if you don't feel like drinking PBR and Old Style.


Rain-day plans include indoor festivities at The Living Room just east of Humboldt Park.

 

We're looking forward to seeing you in September. May the force be with you all - and may the best nerds win.
