Food & snacks at party place

We've got good food and tasty snacks for you at the party place at the Cafe!

Driving route to Kaapelitehdas & Parking issues

To ensure that everybody gets smoothly to the party place, we need everybody to follow our instructions on how to drive to the party place. Please check out the map and always follow the arrows when driving to the party place!

There will also be signs by the roads in Ruoholahti showing the right driving route to the Kaapelitehdas.

Parking is another major problem at Ruoholahti. There is NO reserved parking for the party visitors and it will be very hard to find a parking place on Friday afternoon as the road side parking spots are taken up by people who work at Ruoholahti. After 19:00 o'clock on Friday evening, most of the parking places along side the roads in Ruoholahti will be free for parking, so you can leave you car then at the public parking spots.

Our recommendation is to park your car at the Shopping Center Ruoholahti's parking hall before 19:00 o'clock on Friday and then move your car to a free parking spot along side the roads. Please note that parking at the shopping center is NOT free though.

More information on parking.

Poker & sports cancelled

We have had to unfortunately cancel a few events. The sports competitions have been cancelled due to lack of suitable places for traditional sport events (and no, we won't play football on the frozen sea =)).

World famous WoW guild Paragon comes to Assembly Winter

 

The WoW guild Paragon made Finnish WoW history last September by making the world first kill and defeating Anub'arak on heroic 25 man raid. Paragon WoW left behind all other well known leading WoW guilds, like Ensidia and many others. The guild is entirely finnish, which makes the achievement more noteworthy against international guilds.


Paragon original Anub'arak killshot September 7th 2009


Paragon WoW will come to Assembly Winter with over 20 guild mates. You can experience something you don't get to do elsewhere: enjoy Paragon's live raiding in 25 man Icecrown Citadel, happening authentic at the event and watched via the big screen.

Come by, greet and meet players from the best Finnish WoW guild in person!

You can relive the moments of the first kill in Youtube :)
