Alumni & Parents
TTT: May 16, 2013
Renn Fayre is over, and the students are back in the library for reading week. While they'll be toiling through final exams next week, alumni will gather around the country for a local dose of Reed.
RSVP to your area TTT host if you can. Hosts really appreciate knowing how many people are coming, so they know how many spots to save. But if you're not sure, come anyway. If there's not an event near you, but you would like to get one started, send an email to email@example.com.
While you're thinking of Reed festivities, register for Reunions '13, June 12-16!
TTT started as an alumni-driven concept known as "Thirsty Third Thursday" and has developed into a monthly conglomeration of activities that land on the third Thursday, or not. See the myriad locations and dates to gather with Reedies around the world.

Join fellow south peninsula-area Reedies at a classic location. The Alpine Inn (née Zot's) is a relaxed beer and burger joint in Portola Valley, which is easy to get to from I-280. Weather permitting, we will meet in the back outside at a table near the fence closest to the parking lot.
Look for the purple stuffed Griffin and/or Reed pennant on the table. We have a few regulars and a larger number of fascinating Reedies who drop in once or infrequently.
Directions: Take Alpine Road west from I-280 for two miles. Take a left on Arastradero and an immediate right into the parking lot. There is a clearly marked left turn lane here, it is a unique feature. Proceed very carefully: visibility is poor and bicyclists abound. If you hit Portola Road on the right, you've gone too far.
Keep an eye out for cyclists!RSVP to Ian Kerr '89, email@example.com

Join fellow Reedies for an evening at arguably the cheapest watering (and beer-ing and cocktailing) venue in the District, and one with a sweet rooftop deck to boot. May is a month of weather to cherish being outside before the broiling begins. We hope to see you there! A short walk from Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro station, Red Derby is one of the early entries into this rapidly transforming neighborhood. Come check it out.
