Meeting Activities

SFS Offsite Event at the Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia Located in the heart of Philadelphia's Fishtown neighborhood*, Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia boasts a premier performance/concert space, 24 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, and a cavernous 38,000 sq ft. of interior space that is spread out over two levels. We are certain that you'll be able to find a location to network and chinwag with colleagues. Our evening will feature food and drinks, free bowling, and live music by the Ocean Avenue Stompers. Know that your conference registration fee covers ~85% of the cost for this event, but this small fee ($10) holds your spot and helps us to get a head count to ensure the best experience for all attendees. Please come join us for beverages, beats, and bowling! Follow the instructions below to access and modify your registration to attend this event.

*This classic working-class neighborhood, turned hip destination for artists and musicians, is so named due to its history as an epicenter for the commercial shad-fishing industry!
