Heads Up: Monday, May 30: MEMORIAL DAY!
Join us for Happy Hour ALL DAY in the Dagger Bar!

This week... Wednesday, May 25
Geeks Who Drink! Pub Quiz!
What is this? Here's the short version:
* Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK.
* Quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television.
* Each quiz has two audio rounds: a "Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV.
* Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you're some kind of savant.
* If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.
* Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.
* You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final Jeopardy!
8-10 p.m. in the Longboard Room - More Info: HERE!

The Hula Girls
Like a ‘32 Ford tearing through the International Marketplace in 1960 Honolulu, The Hula Girls will be preaching their self-described ‘hulabilly’ sounds in our Dagger Bar!

P-Cats
“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.”
— Albert Schweitzer
How could he have known what the future would hold in P-Cats? They truly offer a refuge from life’s miseries with their fresh way of looking at the Blues. Their vocals are an eclectic blend of rough, smoky sound and a distinctive voice that’s both pure and sexy at the same time.
Their music is an odd, quirky take on old Blues favorites and newer songs sure to become classics.
