The last stoppers club

Moscow, Russia

 

The origins of the Last Stopper Club in Moscow are mysterious....

All we know is that once a month a group of dedicated expats cast away the "pafosness" of downtown Moscow to explore what the outskirts have to offer. They long for the Real Russia - provincial Russia - yet they are forever confined to Moscow where a giant sucking sound emanates throughout the city courtesy of brain drain and money soaked new Russians.

Yes, they long for beautiful Russia, a different Russia. A place where the babushki scold and belittle you out of the goodness of their own hearts. A place where the locals drunkenly throw their arms around you and talk absolute nonsense for hours on end. A place where there is almost always good times, beautiful women and lousy beer.

Yet, this is as close to Real Russia as they can get without buying a train ticket and disappearing for an entire weekend. Once a month, they jump on the Metro and go to a new Last Stop.

We meet the Last Saturday of every month. Our slogan is simple, "Last Saturday. Last Stoppers."

Join us!


Next Stop: Saturday July 25th, we are off to the end of the short end of the yellow line on the metro heading IN. Our destination is Tretyakovskaya where we plan to explore, drink, and as always, be merry!.  As usual, we will meet where the radial line crosses the circle line. Meet at the center of the yellow line platform at Marksitskaya by 20:00. If you are new, just listen for people speaking English or someone holding a bust of Lenin.
