GAME NIGHT at the Museum
Our first game night last year was a blast, so let’s do it again. As a special treat, we are going to go FACEBOOK LIVE as Justin Waggle completes the creation of his new martial arts board game. He will make a special announcement about it, but you will get to play it as well. Plus, we have card games, and any games you want to bring. It’s free but it’s a pot luck so bring some goodies. We’ll supply the beverages.
