P.R.O.S.T.

PROST! In German it means cheers, In Romanian it means simple minded. In Serbo-Croatian it means common, plain, vulgar, ignoble [ref].

All meanings are compatible with our new summer reading group modeled after Jeff Ross Ibarra’s R.E.H.A.B. group. We read a paper, order drinks / snacks, and informally discuss the paper. No one ‘presents’ or defends the paper. Suggest a paper by e-mailing Yaniv.

We meet on many Fridays. 5:00 pm at the Finnish Bistro.
