I believe in non-profit organisations myself.

And have no idea which night will be dry.

You have correctly spotted that the Lush Index Sticky at the top of the page covers 2011 only. Can we expect an up-date any time soon?

If the holiday is 17th, then theoretically the 16th should be the dry night.

Theoretically...

I recall a brunch last time they had one of these dry nights falling upon us and being told at 5:30pm to stop. So of course all us dirty kaffirs went to someone's house and carried on...

I really wonder why they bother with these things. In most parts of the world a holiday or national event is a time for drinking not sobriety
