This is completely up to you, but I’d recommend moving this event to the weekend, not on a Monday, because many people (including me) have school and work and can’t attend. I’d looove to attend this event! You may not be available at the weekend, that’s fine, but this is just a bit of advice, you don’t have to take it into consideration whatsoever :)

Thanks for the advice! Just moved it to the next saturday!
