Saturday, March 25th @ 11:30am: St. Patrick’s Day Trivia Challenge: Join us for a trivia challenge that covers all things Irish — authors, musicians, culture, and more! You can play on your own or with a team. Each person/team will record their own answers, so no need to race to buzz in before others.
