The Alcoholaat

Last Stelling Eve

Dear borrelaars,

Past year is one with ups and downs. We had our fair share of broken arms, hearts and sinks, as well as the death of the pride of gyrinus: hamster Bob. But we also had beautifull moments. Our gorgeous Stelling can stay open for longer, we have the addition of the Budelse Bieren Borrel and we’re looking forward to a new exciting introduction. To forget the bad and celebrate the good, we have to end this year with a banger.

During the evening a delicious Indonesian rice table will be served. It is prepared by our very own old gyrini and VU employees. You definitely don’t want to miss this, so an eye on the socials for the sign-up link! 

We look forward to seeing you there!
