Join us for a Kon-Tiki Happy Hour this Friday!
Last week, the PAYC book club had a great discussion about Thor Heyerdahl's amazing expedition to verify his theories about the historic voyage of a man named Kon-Tiki. Not only was the voyage riveting, everything that happened before they set sail was an adventure in it's own right!
So, we decided to share the adventure with all of our fellow club members - without all that pesky reading.
We're going to watch the movies!!!!-)
Here's the plan for this Friday, February 23.
5:30PM - Doors open - get your drinks, snacks, and popcorn
6:30PM - We watch the Kon-Tiki documentary
7:30PM - Watch the film adaptation
No RSVP necessary
Please bring a snack to share and remember that this is for club members and invited guests only - it is not open to the public!
Get a little bit of tropical paradise in the middle of winter!
