Hi Matt,
We are having an Installfest.

The InstallFest is an event where anyone within the Greater Halifax area 
can bring their computers in and get help installing or troubleshooting 
alternative operating systems, such as Linux, FreeBSD, BeOS and a host 
of others.  There will be free snacks and various forms of 
entertainment, so come out and join us! At around 3 pm, we will be 
opening a pay-bar including cheap beer and pizza, a la GeekBeer.
