It’s that time of year again…SysAdmin Appreciation Day Party!

We’re gonna have a party!

Yes, this is July, a time historically known in these parts for Independence Day (celebrate the birth of your nation by blowing up a small part of it) and System Administrator Appreciation Day!

Here’s the deal. I’m throwing another party this year, and this year, I live in Boston, so it’s going to be in Boston. Well, Cambridge, to be exact. The location is The Asgard, probably one of the few Irish pubs in the world named after Norse mythology.

Date: Friday, July 26th
Time: Doors open at 6:30pm
Location: The Asgard
350 Massachusetts Ave.
Cambridge, Massachusetts
(617) 577-9100
Cost: $0

The afterparty to Monitorama was at The Asgard, and we had a great time there, so I thought it would work really well for this, too. It’s easy to get to both by mass transit and by car, and has plenty of room.

Financially, here’s the deal: Amazon is sponsoring us and picking up the drinks. This is absolutely awesome of them, and I can’t thank them enough.

In the ensuing weeks, I’m going to be finding a food sponsor, and I’d also like to find a sponsor to cover parking (as it is right now, validated parking is $5 – it would be nice to have a sponsor cover that). If you are a company that would like to come mingle with Boston-area SysAdmins, please send me an email and let me know that you’re interested in sponsoring food or parking. I’m certain that we can work something out. If you’re an attendee and worrying about starving, don’t. I’ll come up with something in plenty of time.

Because I’m newish to the area, I don’t know what the response is going to be, so I have capped the initial tickets at 50. I can always issue new tickets, so don’t freak out if they’re running low. I’ve also already sent an invitation to the Boston LOPSA Chapter and they’ve had all weekend to get tickets, which explains why you’ll see nowhere near 50 tickets left.

If you can’t see the embedded ticket form, you can go to the Eventbrite page and get your free ticket there. Make sure to tell your sysadmin friends and co-workers in the area. We’re going to have a great time! Sign up now!
