Disconnecting for Good
Friday, March 29th
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Destination Bar
The idea is simple: take a few hours to come out and hang out with friends, play board games, have a few drinks, and put away your phone. It’s not rocket science, just a way to be more conscious of how dependent we are on energy and technology and realizing that we can do without – even more so when it can help raise awareness around electricity use and the importance of caring for our planet. So – join us on Saturday 29 March 7-9pm at Destination Bar on 13th and A for board games, drinks, and reconnecting with friends (or making new ones!) without a smartphone interface.

RSVP on EventBrite or on Facebook (those of you I am connected to on there should have received an invite), and feel free to spread the word!
