Are there any locals who know of a good venue near the convention center?
I'm free every night except Thurs. (when I'll be going to drink beer and see Australian swamp rock godfathers
Now That's Class
, if anyone is up for that).
on March 11
I'll be joining ryanshepard!

I'm not going to ACRL but I work at the city library a couple blocks from where the ACRL will be held.
I also don't live far from NTC.

Former librarian with limited availability but I'm into it.

As for good venues near the convention center:
within a 10 minute walk; there's a variety of options if you're looking to eat or drink: particularly by East 4th and Euclid; unfortunately, there's nothing worth going (eating, drinking) lakeside (both on the street or and the actual lake itself for that matter).
If you're really into beer, there's several breweries that are 10-15 minute bus/private car in Ohio City. (On 2nd thought, there are 2 breweries also a 10 minute walk from the convention center).
BTW, if you're a coffee snob, skip starbucks, and walk a block south to Rising star on superior between E 6th and 3rd.
Night-wise, I'd be able available (for now) on Saturday, and possibly after 7 or 8 on Friday.

While Now That's Class is in weather-dependent walking distance from my pad, $20 is a little steep for me for an act that's not really my cup of tea. But if you're in the mood for a grungy punk rock bar, NTC has you covered. Plus the daily cocktail specials are usually quite good - pretty sure the individual bartenders for each night pick the drinks they make best. (Practical note if anyone is considering driving to this show - there's really nothing but street parking here, and it's on the edge of a pretty rough area, so the normal big-city "Do Not Leave Valuables In Plain Sight" warnings apply.)
But I'm down for a meetup if I can clear my schedule & non-librarians are welcome . . .
If any of the suggestions in ryanshepard's
look good to the out-of-towners, pipe up and maybe we can start from there.

Wednesday night would be the best for me, as far as I know. I'm flying in Tuesday, leaving Saturday and have tentative plans Friday evening (though might be able to meet up before I head to check out the swing dance)
