Anyone in the area on the evening of Thursday May 2nd is welcome to join us at Lion Brewery Restaurant at the Huether Hotel for a round of Bluff the Professor, a game where intrepid historian Graham Broad must identify the untrue historical anecdote out of three stories told by his peers. Afterwards, you’ll get to test your own knowledge in a few rounds of trivia. The doors will open at 6:30 and festivities will begin at 7.
