This page contains information for the 2014 CSE Pit Party. Send additional questions to Pit Party Coordinators: Fahad Pervaiz and Hanchaun Li.

When: 6:00 PM on Friday, September 26, 2013

Where: The Burke Museum on the corner of 15th Ave NE and NE 45th St (on UW Campus).

What to bring:

  • New Grads - Nothing
  • Everyone Else - Sign up below with which dish you will bring.

When signing up please try to keep the selection balanced. Burke Museum neither have microwave oven nor they allow electric grills to cook food there.

The department will provide drinks and cups, plates, silverware, etc.

Guests (friends, family, significant other etc.) are certainly welcome to attend. If you're bringing something for the potluck, just try to bring enough to feed you and however many guests you're bringing.

Note that this is happening on a Friday rather than Saturday because there is a possibility of Husky game on Saturday. Home Husky games generally creates traffic jams, full parking lots and rerouting of some bus routes.


The Burke is a 10 minute walk from the CSE department. There are bike racks and the museum is easy to reach via public transit. A map can be found here.

Parking is run by UW and the usual parking fees apply. Limited parking permits will be available, for free parking in N1, and preference will be given to those who are bringing dishes and/or carpooling. Contact Fahad (fahadp@cs) to get parking permit. The most convenient entrance if you are driving is the one on 17th NE off of NE 45th. Driving directions below (please remember to find a DD!).

  • From I-5: Exit east onto NE 45th Street. Travel east on NE 45th Street to 17th Avenue NE. Turn right onto 17th. The museum will be immediately on your right.
  • From Highway 520: Exit north onto Montlake Boulevard NE. Turn left onto NE Pacific Street. Turn right and head north on 15th Avenue NE. Turn right and head east on NE 45th St. Take your next right on 17th Avenue NE. The museum will be immediately on your right.
