Un dimanche après-midi à Cheesman parc
Denver UX Summer Series continues with a picnic this month in lieu of our usual indoor workshop and speaking session. While we love professional development, we also want to make time for work/ play balance. The Summer months are short, we are going to take this opportunity to enjoy them with our fellow designers.
Let’s grab our picnic basket and head to Cheesman Park!!!
Picnic accoutrement essentials
Snazzy hats to start a design conversation or fashion faux pas
Fun and Games
* if people are interested in a game of volleyball please indicate in the comments and plus 1 in replies. If we have more than 10, I’ll figure out a way to coordinate nets.
Food and Drinks
Please bring some of your favorite snacks with some spare to share with your pair ( trying to rhyme, but obviously I should stay in design and not lyrics)
Adult beverages, consider cans over glass, but wine is encouraged
Denver UX will provide utensils and cups ( Solo Yolo)
*if we want to do a more elaborate food scheme with coordinated items so we don’t end up with 10 watermelons and 60 cans of Coors lite. Nothing wrong with that, but we could go with this organization scheme
If your last name falls in A-F bring beverages
If your last name falls in H-M bring veggies and fruits ( think groceries platters)
If your last name falls in O-T bring cheese, crackers, or meats ( think charcuterie)
If your last name falls in V-Z bring sweets ( personalities are great but we are thinking deserts)
