  • Live performance by the PDX Broadsides
  • A ticket for a beer, a well drink, or a slice of delicious pizza
  • A fun, fast-paced, low-pressure chance to meet other geeky singles, hosted and faciliated by Quizzical Empress Molly Newman
  • Scrumptious custom-created cocktails by Atlantis Lounge mixologist Mark Filipas

Reserve your spot today by emailing your name, age, and phone number to Molly Newman by noon on Wednesday, November 20. Or, just take your chances at the door (admission is limited!).
