        Bommen Berend

        till

        Every year, the city of Groningen celebrates The Siege of Groningen. This was a battle that took place in 1672, between Groningen and Bernhard von Galen, bishop form Münster. The bishop has as nickname “Bommen Berend”, due to his excessive use of bombs (Dutch: bommen). They celebrate this victory on 28 August, where they eat the “Groote Maaltijd”. This meal consists of sauerkraut, the bishop’s favourite meal, and a big meatball: the “Bommen Berend Bom”.

        We also would like to celebrate this day, but perhaps leaving out the sauerkraut. Therefore we hereby invite you to a battle, where we have swapped the bombs with laser guns. This battle will take place at our beloved Zernike and you can come and leave whenever you want. Don’t forget that people can play dirty, so don’t wear your nicest clothes.

          Groninger Dow Jones Party

          To celebrate the opening of the Lustrum, we will have a Dow Jones party at Lola on the Monday night. During this epic event at a super fancy location, prices of the drinks will fluctuate depending on the supply and demand of that specific drink. For example: if everybody drinks beer, the price of beer will go up, but the price of another drink will go down. If nobody drinks wine, the price of wine will be very low while other prices might go up. So, buy at the right time to get the best drinks for the best prices. At this activity, we will be able to do what we have always wanted to: being able to influence the prices of our own drinks.

                  Location: Cover Room

                  Yesterday we had an amazing night in Vegas. With a lot of partying and fun casino games it has perhaps become pretty late. All this partying would probably have given you quite a hangover today. To make things a little bit better for you, we invite you to a so called "brakke brunch". We will provide tasty food and drinks so you can start the day with a smile, despite your possible hangover.
