Trivia Seattle Style

More trivia! With Mefites! Outdoors is an option if the weather is good or we just want the fresh air. Warning: Since restarting, there have been no questions about Central European rivers. After a rocky start, I am pleased to report the onion rings are better than ever.

Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo: Pride-themed "Adults Night Out"

My spouse and I are planning to attend the Lincoln Park Zoo's Adults Night Out event on June 26. Tickets are $20 and may sell out. We'll be socially distanced, wearing masks, and fully vaccinated. The venue looks like it should be reasonably safe, perhaps aside from lines for the cash bar. If anyone else is interested in going, it would be fun to meet up in person.
