Help Keep Austin Weird: Socializing at AALL

Alright, alright, alright. So, you’re headed to Austin for AALL! Beyond the great educational programming at AALL, there are plenty of ways to socialize in Austin. Lots of friendships (and job prospects) are forged at the bar (or coffee shop, music hall, taco truck . . . you get the picture). Don’t miss out on opportunities to network and just have fun. Some social events appear in the program, and some pop up spontaneously. Here are some suggestions to get you started.
