We work hard and we party harder!

An (extra)ordinary Friday evening at Social Point!
It’s a tradition that on Friday night we gather, laugh and drink some beers, but this Friday was a bit different and a bit bigger of an event!
It all started with a typical party dinner- burgers, chips, french fries, beer and once our tummies were full it was time for the comedian to step on the stage.
