Date: Wednesday, December 7th
Time: 6:30PM
Place: PAC004

PS: Zakface Kirwood ’12 also included a much cooler yet less safe for work picture to include with this post; in the interest of keeping Wesleying an Olin-appropriate browsing site, I’ve included the image used by the filmmaker after the cut, if you’re curious about it:
