Where: Twelve Eighty Pub @ McMaster University – 1280 Main Street West Hamilton, Ontario

Directions\Parking: It can be a bit tricky to find Twelve Eighty the first time – so please come early! Your best bet for parking on campus is to come in from the Sterling Street entrance and park in the lots next to the Student Centre. The Twelve Eighty pub is located just down the big set of stairs in the Student Centre – just ask any Mac student in the Student Centre and they’ll point you where to go!
