The Hyphenite's Social Calendar: Stir-Friday Night, AALDEF Internships

December 22, 2010

Slim pickins for events this week, as it's the holidaze and folks are likely otherwise occupied with exercising their Holiday Spirit (eatin', shoppin', boozin', etc). Keeping in mind these revered traditions, Hyphenite will be off next week, and I will be dispensing an extra pour of rum into the ol' nog. Happy Festivus and see you in the new year!

Friday December 22nd -- Chicago
