No Pants Party – February 27th

For heaven’s sakes grandpa, put your pants back on….. NOT!!!!!!!

The Radical Beer Faction and a whole slew of friends from various UBC Clubs are presenting the UBC No Pants Party 2009.
Drop em’ like they’re hot… or on fire or whatever (your pants, of course) and show off those superior calf muscles. This will be a night of revelry, of great drinking, of killer music, and of amazing dancing.

Come see the SUB Ballroom decked out with one of the most superior light and sound systems we could get our hands on. Beer will be served, music will be played, and we need you to provide your pantless selves.

Prizes will be given out for various things including creativity and effort, so if you’re not comfortable just dropping those jeans, think of something interesting. We’re not looking to exclude!
Unless you’re under 19…

It is a 19+ event.

TICKETS are 8$ PRESALE and they’ll be $10 at the door. We recommend you get yours early, and discounts WILL be given for group purchases. We’re doing this to inject some life into the UBC party scene, NOT to make a profit, so we look forward to seeing your legs there. Show us how UBC can party… pantless….

A Much Needed Update- Gardens and Elections

Hello Beer Fans,

First of all, apologies that things have been a little off the radar for the last little while.
To make it up to you, we will be holding two beer gardens soon, one of which will be the biggest that we’re thrown yet, and we need all your help to promote.

February 27th we will be holding a large and glorious beer garden in the SUB Ballroom. This will be massive, with tons of beer, tons of music, and tons of opportunities to make and lose memories. Get ready for that. Tickets will go on sale soon.

Mid March we will also have another beer garden with a twist- stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, here is where our drunk walks have been taking us:

A KEG is running in the AMS elections!!! THAT’S RIGHT, A KEG!!!! Even we were surprised.
We encourage everyone to pay attention to the campaign because if beer is involved, then we love it.

Check out our elections arm at THE RADICAL BEER TRIBUNE
or join the facebook group

The site will include lots of information about the elections, including liveblogs of all the debates, some interesting candidate videos, and some general humour and debauchery.
At the RBF we’re all about student engagement- engagement with a beer in hand! Check out the elections and vote for those who kegstand for what you believe in.

Radical Beer, over and out.

assistant(s) needed!

hey, everyone!

the RBF is looking for a few assistants to help the executive out in our political and party-making goals!

in particular, we’re looking for someone who can help the vp-external out in lobbying for a safe, progressive liquor policy on campus. if you’re a political kind of person and are interested in being a force of change on campus, send us an e-mail at and tell us briefly about yourself.

in addition we’re looking for a few good women and men to help us out in throwing our events! there are a lot of things to help out with, including planning, set-up and take-down. you’ll find that planning parties is one of the most fun and fulfilling things you can do on campus.

anyway, that’s about it. we look forward to hearing from you soon!

THERE WILL BE NO BOOZE, but there will be energy drinks, and supreme glory to help you get crazy throughout the night. All ages are welcome and we take all with open arms, but as usual- the policy on bitch ass bitches is… don’t be one.
Come drunk from Arts Frosh- we’ll take care of the rest.

We’ll be playing all the best pumping dance electro house ultimate tunes to keep you sweaty and dancing all night.

Entrance is FREE. Drinks will be 2$, Water 1$
