As we start gearing up for the home stretch and before everyone gets entrenched in finals, PALS is getting together one last time this semester. We’ll be hanging out, de-stressing, having some drinks and food, and trying not to whine about school and finals. AND . . . we will be cheering on our fellow Pilipino – Manny Pacquiao as he fights Antonio Margarito on Nov. 13! It’ll be a great chance to hang out with your fellow PALS outside of school and for you 1Ls, it’ll be a great time to ask any last minute questions about finals! Hope you all can join us. Details are below and don’t hesitate to email or call if you have any questions.

PALS Presents FAREWELL TO FALL: Manny Pacquiao v. Antonio Margarito
Date: Saturday, Nov. 13
Time: Starts at 5:00 pm (fight starts at 6:00 pm)
Location: Tyler’s Apartment

PALS will be providing some snacks, but drinks will be BYOB (there’s a grocery store and a liquor store nearby). Tyler lives just a few blocks from a bunch of Polk Street bars, so we can continue the fun after the fight for anyone that is interested. Please email him at cesart@uchastings for the address and directions.
Hope to see everyone there!
