Poli’s Appro is here again!

Are you still longing for the heat of last summer? Does the memory of the heatwave make you thirsty? DO NOT WORRY! Once again Polin Appro will save all of your dry throats! On November 6th the surroundings of the old Poly-building will be crowded by barcrawlers looking for something to drink in the middle of the desert!

This traditional bar crawl held during the Teekkari Tradition Week, led by Aalto people, brings together the whole overall-wearing population – all who are students and student-spirited. The first departure is at 4pm from the bar DTM (Mannerheimintie 6b). There you will get an Appro map, where participants collect performance stamps by visiting partnering bars. The amazing after party starts at Apollo Live Club (Mannerheimintie 16) already at 9pm, but there’s time to barcrawl until 11pm. You can exchange your filled in Appro map to an overall badge.


Year 2019 Polin Appro theme is THE DESERT, so dress up accordingly and bring your own pet camels along!
