Coming to Culture: St. Patrick's Day is coming — ready your liver

St. Patrick’s Day falls on Friday night this year, so get your green shirt and lucky liver ready. While it might be a good idea to ease off on your nights out, it doesn’t mean that the rest of your week has to be boring. UBC has plenty in store to keep even the most basic of college millennials entertained Monday through Sunday.

What’s better than going to an aquarium? Getting to go at night with booze! If you’re into that or just want another excuse to drink and look at trippy fish, head on over to the Vancouver Aquarium for another one of their 19+ After Hours Nights. You’ll be able to explore the aquarium in the dark, with something more than apple juice in your cup.

The Outside-In: International Photojournal's “Global Crisis” conference is also on Thursday at the multipurpose room in the Liu Institute. The event will see the launch of a print journal as well as presentations by international photojournalists Paul Watson, Lara Rosenoff Gauvin and Farah Nosh.

It’s finally time for St. Paddy’s and thus, liver damage too. There are sure to be plenty of parties going on in and around downtown and Kits. The UBC Ski and Board Club is hosting its annual St. Paddy’s rager at the Manchester on Broadway. Don’t wanna leave campus to get your freak on?  You won’t have to, as the Calendar is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party at Koerner’s Pub.

The UBC Indian Student Association is back at it again with their annual Holi event. Think of it like Colour Run without the running part, but with just as much paint, free entry and cheap food. Head on out especially if you’re in dire need of a new profile picture and have a plain, old, boring white t-shirt lying around that is just screaming to be covered in all different types of colours.
