Spring Dinner Party – 5 years anniversary
This up-coming spring the association officially celebrates its 5 years anniversary.
The dinner party will be held the 10th of May, and tickets will be available from the 28th of April.

Conversation Corner
The conversation corner is up and running as usual, and have been the last few week.
Tonight we are expecting a visit from the mahjong circle, where they will introduce themselves.
Feel free to drop by if you have the time.
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 17:15 somewhere in the U-corridor, C-building.

Food event
EAA will host the cooking event on “Vuxenskolans” premises in the city. There you will have the opportunity to participate in cooking the main course and dessert from the last dinner party we hosted, namely five spices rubbed pork file and french toast respectively. We will bring all supplies needed, but if you want a good knife you might want to bring your own.
Prerequisites: To participate you need to be a member of EAA, but there is no need to fret, it is only 20 kr per academic year, and as a member you will get a reduced price on our dinner parties among other things. We can only take 20 participants, and we go by first come first serve. So make sure you decide before the event is filled up.

Place: Vasavägen 3, in the city
