De Kleine Duivel is no longer available to us on the 3rd Thursday of the month. They are hosting a recurring burlesque night in that slot now. Max is going to reach out to Waverly about the January meeting. Stay tuned for a location confirmation email.
This means that after January we will need to pursue either a venue change or a location change. A number of options were discussed last night. If you have an opinion please ping me! I'll consolidate feedback for the e-board.
Baltibrew won Best Food at the Guild Holiday Party thanks to Lucy's Tiramisu Cupcakes! Her dessert was absolutely divine and took home the award over the submissions of 9 other clubs! Baltibrew's food and beers were a big hit with the attendees.
Last but not least, the Holiday Party marks the official acceptance of next years officers. Many thanks to our outgoing board members and a big thank you to everyone who's stepping up to fill a position.
