August 18: Game Night! Play in the Museum

6 PM - 9 PM

It might feel like the Dog Days of summer, but don't let the weather play games with you. Play games with us instead! Third Friday after hours event on Friday, we will be hauling out a bunch of games, some of which are new to the market along with venerable favorites. Presented with support from Quatrefoil Library. There will be light refreshments and a trivia quiz with fabulous prizes! Unfortunately, we won't be playing Twister, although it was invented in Minnesota. (Hint: that might be a trivia answer.)
