I saw three posts on different pages of the site:

Miracle's concert (posted in Expat Social Club)
Die Artze (German band) concert (in Expat Social club)
Free guided tour around Moscow (Information)

All on same day, Saturday, May 17, and at the same time. A dilemma...

Seems like most people go for Indian food and bowling.

I was also surprised why everyone chose this day... :bash:

A bit of useful knowledge for you:

1792: A group of brokers meeting at a coffee house in New York City organize the New York Stock Exchange. The first transactions are made under a tree on Wall Street.


1875: The first Kentucky Derby is held at Churchill Downs, Kentucky; racehorse Aristides is the winner.


1954: The U.S. Supreme Court reverses an 1896 ruling that education should be "separate but equal," ruling that racial segregation in schools is unconstitutional.


1973: The U.S. Senate committee investigating Watergate begins its televised proceedings; allegations of wrongdoing in the affair lead to President Richard Nixon's resignation.

That's fine, but how is it all connected with bowling and Indian food?

Miracle's concert is at 5pm, I think? So you can start with that, and then go on to other things. It's Museum Day, and many Museums have special events in the evening to encourage visitors.

I have decided to go to miracles concert and afterwards to any of the museums, but this will be decided on a short term. My body says no to bowling...

I can't make the bowling, because I'm washing my hair.

It's also the day I run away to Turkey for a week to escape the cold water at home.

Very upset about missing yet another of Miracle's concerts (will she still keep inviting me?), as well as bowling and Indian food.
