There is “trivia night” at the Pied Piper Ale House tonight at 8:00 pm. The address for the restaurant is 2404 NE 65th St. It is a fun event and they are also accepting donations for care packages that will be sent overseas to military members. I also happen to live next to the Pied Piper so there might something going on afterwords. The 71 and 372 will take you from campus to within a block. They have great prices for bar food and prizes for people participating. Sorry for the late notice but hope to see you there.
