PSA!

Hello, NYADA students!

Just a friendly reminder from your Florence Farr first year representative that the AMS will be throwing a fun party tomorrow, May 29, at MOIRAI Sky Bar! Venue opens at 7 o’clock in the evening. MOIRAI is offering a killer DJ, amazing new interior designs, and a wild time. There’s also a special offer, free drinks (with purchase of food) for the first round! ;) This is unfortunately a 21+ event, but stay tuned for all-ages fun just around the corner! I’ll be there tomorrow to represent (and boogie on down), so see you there!
