Hysterical History Improv

Thu MAR 06 | 7:00 – 9:00 pm

              If it’s in the pages of the history books, it could very well be a part of the night’s improvised madness. Bring your hysterically historical scene suggestions for local funny people Drama Nutz to enact, then sit back and watch as they bring them to life in a series of songs and sketches that will no doubt give you a view of history like you have never seen before!

 

 

Pop Culture Trivia Night

Fri MAR 07 | 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Join host and trivia nut Chris Roedler and special guests Leila Armstrong, Wallie Desruisseaux, Eric Dyck, Aaron Taylor and others for a historic journey through pop culture trivia. Questions by Trivia Night alumni Chris Epplett and Kevin McKeough too! Play individually or as a team using our handheld electronic responders and compete for prizes in various categories including movies, music and, of course, history. 

 

 

All-night games tournament

Fri MAR 07 Sat MAR 08 | 9:00 pm – 9:00 am | must be 14+

Stay after the trivia contest for a night of Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering (a sealed tournament is planned), Settlers of Catan, Mahjong, Artemis and more. Be prepared for verbal insults from Spamalot’s French Taunter and photo-ops with other like characters. Come in a group or join new friends; come as an expert and share your knowledge, or come to learn new games!  Kapow Comics will provide a number of games for the evening, or bring your own to share. You can even bring your own midnight picnic or indulge in the concession, and a pillow in case you need a nap. But who wants to nap when there’s all-night gaming going on?!

Supported by Kapow Comics, Cards & Games
