BICsters Mix and Mingle: virtually -- and victoriously!

2/04/2021 Unknown 0 Comments

After a busy few months, BICsters ended the Fall 2020 semester with a bang! While our inter-class BIC mixer usually happens at Hogshead Tavern in August, the pandemic had other plans. Instead, we decided to go remote with a celebratory end-of-semester bash sponsored by Octagon, the powerhouse sports and entertainment agency who who donated their expertise. BICsters in the Class of 2021 and 2022 met in the Zoom grid on December 21st to celebrate, mix, and mingle -- as well as meet BIC alums, Alexandra SuazoAmera-Rime Lulu and Javier Garcia who joined in to lend a hand. 

The night kicked off with mixologist Priscilla who demonstrated how to make our signature drink, "The BICster Benny," which was specially created for the evening. Priscilla gave BICsters step-by-step instructions to bring the cocktail to life using rum (shot worth), creme de banana liqueur (shot worth), orange juice, and a lime (1/8 wedge). A "mocktail" version was also demonstrated. Key ingredients had been mailed to BICsters ahead of time. It was a delicious drink that didn't disappoint. 

With cocktails in hand, BICsters were whisked away into breakout rooms designed by Octagon and led by our BIC alums. Themed events included "Caption This," a Home Scavenger Hunt, and a Virtual Game Night. A fourth breakout room featured a less competitive activity: Guided Meditation.

Overall, it was a winning evening and great way to finish up the semester. Big BIC thanks to our sponsor Octagon and to our special guests Priscilla and BIC alum.
