Around the SL,UT September 2, 2011

September 2, 2011

School’s back, which should remind us what Mr. T always said. Stay in school, eat your vegetables, dance like you’re in Brazil, and enjoy great movies and music every night. Okay, so maybe the immortal Mr. T didn’t say all of those things, but I pity the fool who don’t take that advice and enjoy this week. It’s time for, Around the SL,UT!

SLC Vegan Drinks MinglerAre you vegan, have vegan tendencies, or just want to try some great cruelty-free drinks and dishes? Head to W Lounge tonight (Friday) at 7pm for SLC Vegan Drinks and Potluck. Get to know the vegan community while tasting some tasty snacks and enjoying some cool music. Eat, drink, and be vegan!

Saturday, it’s time to get Brazilian! No, not get a Brazilian, but feel free to do that too. It’s the Brazilian Festival at Gateway from 1-7pm. Music, dancing, food, and plenty of South American excitement.

It’s Always Sunny with Geeks Who Drink

August 31, 2011

Tuesday September 20 is the day the Gang Gets Quizzed. It’s an entire quiz devoted to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. If you love this show, this is your chance to make it pay. Gather your own gang together and come celebrate seven seasons of the show.

Unlike a regular night of quiz, this one has a big cash prize on the line. It’s $5 per player to join, and you can have a team of up to 6 people. The first question is 8pm, and you will want to arrive early, cash in hand, and ready to throw down your knowledge of Sweet Dee, Charlie, and Mac.

This quiz will take place at The Huddle. Check out their new menu before the quiz, because you wouldn’t want to compete on an empty stomach. RSVP & share the invite with your friends, because the bigger this quiz gets, the bigger the cash prize!
