Burbsec|East is an informal meetup of Information Security enthusiasts, engineers, hackers, geeks, tweaks and weirdies! Expect a night of great networking and lubricated conversations! The crowd is very chill, about 30-40 strong, with ages skewing in the mid-20's to late-30s. We have NO DUES, NO PRESENTATIONS, NO PUSHY SALESPEOPLE!
Navigator Taproom, at the address below. It has over 40 beers on tap, along with many great ciders and wines, all using a self-serve RFID system! Aside from that, they also have a small cocktail bar, and will have food delivered to your table from Serai and Innjoy across the street, with more great restaurants in the works.

Come out to Burbsec Prime! Everyone is welcome.
We're just like you and you will fit right in. We geek out on infosec, memes, beer, and compliance jokes (among other things). Our skill set ranges from novice to expert and includes paper hat making. There will be someone who you can ask tough questions and get answers as well as be asked tough questions and give answers.
Aside from finding like minded people, you will make contacts, friendships, and expand your network of professional connections with genuine people. These are the kind of connections that help you solve that tough problem at work, at home, or in the job market.
Don’t worry about being late, people will begin to roll in after work around 6pm and we go until we're done (generally 4 - 5 hours or so as people come and go). We often have a later group that rolls in post-dinner around 8 or 9.
