The RGG EDU Black & White After Party 2017

Listen up MOFOS, its time for the 4th Annual Black & White After Party from RGG EDU and 6th party overall. We’ve got an open bar, an imported DJ, an emcee that will melt your face off, and some photo booths to document all the horrible mistakes you’ll make. Don't worry, we will post them online for you to remember. Remember the naked guy the first year? What about the Brazillian Samba dancers from last year? We have no memory at all from the second year but someone won an iPad and we drank 13 kegs.

Get your official RGG EDU party shirt here:

Now of course there are a couple rules, because were not heathens: one, you gotta wear a Black and White outfit to get in. Nothing fancy if you don't want to, but just make some sort of effort. Ask your Emo brother in-law for advice. And second, you need a ticket, so go to the Eventbrite page to register and get a ticket. Aside from that, we don't really care, because were not here for rules, were here to party & network. And also photography I guess.

We will be doing a massive Rock Paper Scissors competition for the first 50 people that want to participate. The winner will get something incredible. So far we've given away iPhones, cameras, iPads, and a live chicken. Don't be late.
