Extra Basketball Tickets

Hi! This is super short notice but I have 2 extra tickets to the Nebraska vs. Minnesota basketball game on Thursday at 6pm. One of the ticket holders has to work and the other is staying in Colombia for an extra few days. Would one or two of you be interested in coming along? They're not the best seats and you'll have to put up with me rooting for Nebraska, but they'd be free! Post here or memail me if you're interested. -Ian

Anyone else excited to see Kedi, the new documentary about street cats in Istanbul, (currently at 100/85 on RT)? It starts at the Rialto in Raleigh on March 10 and seems perfect for a meetup. Durham or Chapel Hill theaters showing it could work if that's better for folks. Maybe include a stop for appetizers before or drinks after? It's all questions at this point, except for the kitties, which are solid.
