UBC Dojo after practice tradition

Carrying on an after practice tradition of going for drinks after practice, something we don't get to do as often as we like due to work and family commitments.

When we do manage to pull it off however, it's a great time :)

The fire chicken (don't recall the menu item name at the moment) at the Running Chicken has however caused some gastro-intestinal issues for some members the following day.
