The May social is in 3 weeks, and I have good news -- there will be  
free beer!

My own company is launching a new product and for shameless plugging  
purposes / drumming up vague enthusiasm, is going to put some money  
behind the bar.

Surely free beer can tempt some of you to the Edgar?

Socials are always fun, come along and see!
