February 2019 Newsletter
There is such much news to fill February! We started two new shows: Tuesdays at Limerick’s Tavern in DTLA (7:00) and Thursdays at Rock N Reilley’s at USC Village (6:00). We put on a joint game at Orccon, a massive gaming convention. We hosted a birthday party, a corporate night, and a standing room only President’s Day Oscars event. To top it all off, we have even more great events lined up for March!
Some of our February crowd-pleaser questions:

And some of our biggest crowd-stumpers from the month of February:
