On February 7th, the brothers and sisters had a fun time strengthening the bond with another PsiEK Big/Little Date Night. What made this one particularly exciting was that it happened to be on a Friday – not just any old Friday, but one that happens only when the planets align (which happens to be the first Friday of every month). For this Date Night, Bigs and Littles took a quick trip down to Venice for First Fridays!
Our wonderful Directors of Brotherhood and Sisterhood Relations did an amazing job setting up this event, from coordinating both of our chapters to handling logistics of getting everyone there and back! If you’re like me, you probably waited until the last minute possible to sign up (yikes), but in the end everyone who wanted to go found a way to get there.
By the end of the night, as if we were moths drawn to lamps, everyone somehow ended up at Salt and Straw. The line went out the door as usual, as brothers and sisters waited very patiently to round off the night with a treat. Some exchanged their personal Yelp reviews of the food trucks they had visited, while others fooled around to pass the time. After getting a hold of some delectable ice cream, all of us headed out and formed a large mob outside of the establishment, where we all just spent some quality time talking to each other, sharing laughs and stories to destress from the struggles of the quarter. Honestly, PsiEK could have taken over all of Venice with the amount of people occupying the sidewalk outside of Salt and Straw! (Next time, perhaps…)
Finally, as everyone finished their dessert and the bustle of Venice was winding down, it was time to head home. After a little back-and-forth, everyone managed to find a ride back home, and we all parted ways to wrap up a great night.
PsiEK had a blast getting to interact with lifelong friends that night. This Date Night will be a memorable one for us all!
