Montreal Alumni “Pit Night”

Remember Pit Night from your time at UBC? The UBC alumni branch in Montreal can’t uproot the Pit Pub from its spot on campus, but we will be bringing all the fun of a Pit Night to downtown Montreal this upcoming March. Come and reminisce with the UBC crew here in Montreal and have some great times over a frosty pint in the cultural heart of Canada.

+1’s (or 2’s!) are always welcome! Complimentary appetizers will be provided courtesy of the alumni UBC Montreal executive committee. Additional meals from the Irish Embassy pub will be available for purchase.
