“Remember, Remember, the Fifth of November, Gun Powder, Treason and Plot”… so goes the little ditty remembered by Britons on this autumnal calendar date, in remembrance of some rabble rouser called Guy Fawkes, who tried to blow up the mother of all parliaments in London in 1604. What the author forgot to add in the 2010 addition of the verse was “and remember, remember the FCCC Happy Hour Drinks at the Bookworm this Friday, 5th of November”.
We can’t promise the traditional fireworks and ceremonial bonfire on which to throw an effigy of old Guy (some believe he should be awarded a posthumous Nobel Prize for his efforts!) but do come along to discuss your J1 visa renewal worries and other explosive issues over a beer, wine or whatever and remember – discounted prices for members!

ENTRANCE: Free. Non-members very welcome as always.
DIZZY DRINKS DISCOUNT: FCCC members wielding a valid FCCC membership card get the usual crazy discounts on draught Carlsberg and Yanjing, bottled Tsing Tao, house wine and mixed drinks.
