Connecting Over Curry Dec 2013
Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (PST)
It started in England - spread to Wales and Scotland - now in Vancouver!
The Jambo Grill is a great community gathering place and their curry selection is tremendous. We would like to invite you to join us and talk about community and how we build community for ourselves and others. Our December event will be our second Connecting Over Curry evening - the first was September 4th, 2013, when 18 people gathered at Jambo Grill to enjoy tasty curries and meet new people.
Is there a plan for the evening? There will be no presentations or key note speeches. All you have to do is chat and eat curry. If this works well there is the possibility of a trip to the pub afterwards. If it doesn’t, run like the wind! The curry club is a gathering of folks who wish to discuss and debate, no-one attends as as a representative of an organisation or group, so lift all that baggage off at the door and collect in on the way out when you have a nice full tummy and brain.
