PANMA Holiday Party – December 4th at Buffalo Billiards!

Join PANMA for our annual holiday party! It’s always a great time, and this year, we’ll be at Buffalo Billiards (2nd floor – reserved for us!) We’re delighted to have PhillyCHI as a sponsor, helping us make this happen!

We’ll put out a tasty spread of food and spread some good cheer! Buffalo Billiards is a terrific venue – we’ll have the bar to ourselves, there’s (of course) the pool tables, and plenty of space to relax, enjoy good conversation, meet your friends and make new ones. PANMA welcomes everyone in the Philly tech-creative community, no matter what your interest in the digital development world.

Put it on your calendar and don’t miss the PANMA holiday party of 2014!
