Keep a stiff upper lip and join us for a beer run to International House Philadelphia on Thursday, August 9th and an Olympian themed Cool Brittania celebration.  Kick up your heels to British Invasion tunes, chow down on a traditional Ploughman’s spread, and check out the Olympic Games on the big screen. Don’t miss your chance to raise your pints for a multi-lingual toast to the Spanish Professor who started it all! Enjoy Philadelphia Brewing Company beer, contests, and wicked prizes that will be awarded to the runners wearing the best costumes in keeping with the evening: think Union Jacks, Queuing, and Complaining about the Weather!

Wristbands for beer will be a mere $10 (available at the door), but please be polite like a proper English gentleman and RSVP via TicketFly prior to the event.  Feel free to come along even if you can’t make the run. We’ll be looking awkward on the dance floor in true Brit style until around 10pm. Ticketfly RSVP listing shows the event as $0, admission to the event is free but there will charge $10 at the door for beer wristbands.

International House Philadelphia is a multicultural residential center, a source of distinctive programming, and the embodiment of an ideal. Our critical three-fold mission: to maintain a diverse and welcoming community for scholars from around the world, while introducing them to the American experience; to broaden the horizons of its residents and the larger community through high quality international arts and humanities programs and to encourage cooperation and respect among the peoples of all nations.
