Trivia Night: TONIGHT

Thought no one showed up to Trivia Night every Thursday? We kinda did too, but it looks like we were wrong. If you grew up watching Regis kill it on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”, were the kid who played Trivial Pursuit every weekend night, or just happen to have a really good memory (which is supposed to come along with that Midd package), this is the Thursday night event forContinue reading

CORRECTION: Diversity in Muslim Identity

You know those Wednesdays when you think it’s Thursday?
