Events are still happening, but be safe and please wear masks!
We weren’t sure whether to send an events newsletter this week… but then we thought this could be our last opportunity to party for a while! New regulations are set to begin on Sunday, but there’s loads of great stuff going on this weekend! However, covid is still present and dangerous, so please make sure you wear a mask wherever you go so that we can continue to have fun in the city we love. In other words, what would Artem do??
