First Thursday: Russkie Posidelki
Rescheduled from January: The February Posidelki topic will be Maslenitsa (also called Pancake Week), an Eastern Slavic folk holiday that takes place the week before the start of Russian Orthodox Lent. It originally marked the end of winter and advent of spring. And, like Mardi Gras, it involves a whole lot of feasting before the Lenten fast — with blinis, a Russian pancake, as the food of choice. We’ll be enjoying our own tea and blinis so please join us!
Posidelki is a monthly opportunity to learn more about Russian culture in a relaxed, social setting.
