The past year has been marked with disappointment and discontinued activities. We of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” have experienced this ourselves as well. Nevertheless we have found a way to overcome these obstacles. Similarly, I am sure all of us will overcome these troubling times as well. We are proud to inform you that we have found a way to deliver the entire experience of our famed Decadent Weekend to the comfort of your own home. We would like to announce, and are doing so in this piece of writing, our first Digital Decadent Weekend.
Anyone who has ever partaken in our Decadent Weekend can agree that the wine should always be plentiful and of supreme quality. In order to satisfy this need we mark the opening of our Digital Decadent Weekend by means of our Online Winetasting activity. Our very own renowned Vinoloog der dispuut “In Vino Veritas” Mgr. Sanders will guide you through the experience of properly tasting wine. He will not only dispense his wisdom, he will also test your ability absorb this information and put it into practice. The group that can answer Mgr. Sanders’ questions about these wines the best, will win a prize that is an absolute honor to receive.
During previous editions of our Decadent Weekend we have always provided entertainment during the Saturday afternoon while the main force of I.V.V prepares an outstanding dinner. This edition of our Digital Decadent Weekend will be no different. In case you have ever wondered what it would be like to be a member of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” we offer you a glimpse of this experience. Rather, we offer you the opportunity to experience what it would be like to be a spectator at one of our assemblies. We will hold an Online Open General Fraternity Assembly. Any GEWIS member is invited to listen to us discuss the finer and more important things in life and perhaps pitch in on a few of the subjects.
As per usual the Saturday evening will entirely revolve around one of the most exquisite diners of the year. You have all had the chance to take part in one of our Keuken met I.V.V streams. During this weekend we will take this concept to the next level. We offer the opportunity to take a peak into the kitchen of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” as we prepare a dinner worthy of a Digital Decadent Weekend. Not only will you be able to behold the expertise of our chefs, we also provide the necessary ingredients and instructions for anyone to cook along with us. This can only be described as the opportunity of a lifetime to take your cooking close to the level of dispuut “In Vino Veritas”.
After all this greatness and the accompanying amounts of wine, we understand that everyone needs a moment to wind down. No need to fret, we have prepared for this as well. The Sunday morning is usually marked by a hangover, cleaning, scavenging for breakfast and preparing for the ride home. The highlight of the morning is often being able to share the misery of your hangover and reminisce about the previous few days. We deem the latter important. Therefore we will setup a livestream of one of our favorite TV shows, de Lullo’s. Anyone is invited to join us in the GEWIS discord and watch one of our favorite series together with us and pass the time until our hangovers have passed.
In order to join us on this weekend filled with decadency, wine and good company you can subscribe to any and all of the activities described above on the GEWIS website.
