We locals love official holidays in Ukraine. Days off, good food, drinks and wonderful women (why who rules the world? – girls!) The latter is an important component of any beautiful party, but it is an indispensable component, if we are talking about International Women’s Day. So where to celebrate this holiday, if you happen to be in Kiev on March 8 (or another Friday night in Kiev, if you don’t feel like celebrating)?
