"The event is a Russian cultural presentation given by Skoltech students who are in residence at MIT this year. The presentation itself will run for about 30 minutes, followed by a Q&A session, and a Russian-style reception beginning at 6 pm." I do not know what to expect from this but if you are curious about Russian culture, let's explore this "Russian Cultural Presentation" at MIT.

Email from the organizer: Ema
We look forward to seeing members of BCN Thursday. If possible, please ask people who signed up to confirm their attendance here http://goo.gl/aBZmja
The presentation will be given by Russian exchange students at MIT. They will share with the audience their view on Russia today. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. We will have some Russian food served at the reception that will follow the event at 6 pm. Please ask your group members to arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of the event at 5 pm. (if possible). [I told Ema, most of us work until 5pm or later - but for those who can come early, please do so.]
How to get there:
About a 7 min walk from Kendal T station (Red Lind). Use Vasser St entrance, which says "Dreyfoos" and go up to the 4th floor (elevator/stairs) - follow the sign for R&D Commons. Parking is limited but try meter parking around Ames, Main, Broadway, Third, Mass Ave. etc. (feed meter until 6).
