Happy new year to all GISers everywhere! May this be the year that conservation-focused GIS analysis becomes the driving force behind all land use and natural resource planning decisions.
An informal poll shows that ~ 50% of local GIS analysts are striving for dry Januaries (in terms of alcohol consumption, not precipitation). In honor of that noble impulse, we have selected a Happy Hour venue with an exceptional food menu and mocktails (as well as standard bar options for drinkers). Tryst (https://www.bartryst.com/) is located at SW 2nd and Ankeny, with HH pricing till 7 pm. The early-birds will probably arrive ~ 5:30.
