Women's Speakeasy Multilingual Happy Hour

Though we love our XY-chromosomed brothers, sometimes it’s nice to change the dynamic and hang out just with women. And so: our first Women’s Speakeasy. We’ll be hosted in the Chatroom at Via dei Serragli 38r: https://www.facebook.com/chatroomclub/ We’ll have some pre-dinner drinks and snacks and discuss ladies’ things like throwing off millennia of domination to take the world back over…. They’ll be a donation box for the drinks and snacks. The place is small so we will limit places. Only RSVP if you will come for sure(ish).
