Image for the group Seek The Pig - A BW Lyon event


The BW group of Lyon is organising Seek The Pig the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of April 2016 in our beautiful city famous for its pork based recipes (yes the list is quite long, and also if you are vegan you won't die of starvation).

We really hope to welcome you, together with BWers from lots of different places for this special occasion. We would like to organize an unforgettable week-end, which will gather Be Welcome members to enjoy a nice week-end, to promote discussions, exchanges, happy moments shared together... and of course to promote BW itself.

=> APERO - BIERES ! (Beer aperitive)

Of course you're all welcome to attend this event, even if you're not a big fan of beers... then bring something else to drink! But be aware there might be beer-lovers around there and the main theme is beer - tasting!

Bring: something to drink (better if a beer from your area) or/and to eat and good mood

Place: at Cybouk's (Croix-Rousse district, address, door code and details on request by private message only)

Restrictions: 4th floor without any lift, you've got to climb the stairs! + number of people - my flat is not huge so if there are really too many people wishing to attend, I might have to put a limit (hopefully I won't have to do this...).

Organizer: Cybouk


\___SUNDAY___/ (2014-04-03)

=> PIC-NIC at the Parc de la Tête d'Or
Bring: food & drinks for the picnic + outdoor games

Time: from 12:30 till we are there (which means long enough in the afternoon to enjoy the parc, the sun and games.)

Meeting point: the parc is huge so find us near the red point on the map : this is definitely the best place to install a slackline - we'll have the Be Welcome banner so that you can recognize us easily!

Good to know: there are some drinkable water points in the parc, where you can refill your bottles if needed
