SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER (organized by Radek Iwankiewicz)
When: tonight at 10 P.M.
Where: 1) the meeting point is in front of McDonald’s in the Main Square (Rynek)
2) we’re heading to SZAJBA (club/pub with no entrance fee)
The local organizers have planned a city tour including a riverboat cruise on Satuday (starting at 1 P.M. in front of the EGG classes venue) and a trip to a nearby castle on Sunday. Check the details below.
For this classic EGG event, come up with a linguistic-related name for your cocktail (some inspiration “Strong Island Ice Tea”, “Syntax on the Beach”) and prepare it for others to taste it. We will then vote for the best cocktail in different categories (the traditional ones are: tastiest, best name, deadliest). Everyone can taste and vote!
UPDATE: We will have the tasting in the STUDY ROOM, 12th floor in the dorm. Starting time 9 pm.
UPDATE2: EGG Drag Contest conjoined with the cocktail party so if you’re into it, don’t you worry, it’s going to take place tonight shortly after the Cocktail Party i.e. around 10 P.M. (in the same room) so get ready to show us what you’ve got! 😉 This is how it was last year: https://www.facebook.com/groups/4836235291/permalink/10155824166650292/
