“Will you take our picture?”

Last Thursday after a great AbeErb meetup with Mark Connolly and absent a long-shift working Brohemus, I spent Brother Night roaming Uptown Waterloo. In a snow storm. With busloads of t-shirt-clad students. In my cultural travels, a persistent mystery is how to engage the tens of thousands of local students in Waterloo Region. So running into what I can only imagine was a massive pub crawl was a good example of something that had cracked that code. Not a big revelation; just a data point. And a few more pics…
