The “Watercooler” channel on our Discord server will be open the whole time Dream lab is in session and we will have Virtual Coffee Breaks there from 8am EST until 9pm EST and again from 3pm EST until 3:30pm EST.

We will also host Virtual Happy Hour Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 5pm EST until 6pm EST in the Watercooler Channel.
