Are you someone who likes to drink their coffee black, or with cream? Do you drink it with your pinkie sticking out, or carry around a travel mug? Whatever your style is, UBC CLF is hosting a Coffee House in Abdul Ladha on March 12th from 6:30 to 10 PM. Socialize, listen to live music, and rumour has it that there may be an ‘abracadabra’ moment at some point during the night. Entry is by donation, and all proceeds will go towards the regional Canadian Liver Foundation’s efforts to advance liver research and fight liver disease. What better way to shake off those midterm blues than to share a cup of joe for a great cause!
