Come play Ping Pong with us
You’re a young attorney, we know you have a lot of balls in the air- so what’s one more? Join us on June 13th, the second Thursday of the month at New York’s premiere ping-pong social club, SPiN. Whether you plan to dominate your colleagues on the ping pong court or are completely lacking in hand-eye coordination, this event promises to be a fun night of friendly competition. Admission includes ping-pong, light hors d'oeuvres, and an open beer and wine bar (from 7-8:30 pm). Bring a group or meet new friends there, but register soon because space is limited and we cannot accommodate walk-in registrations. The ball’s in your court.
