An Opening In The Wall: Urban Galleries Of The Street Art Movement

Literary Trivia
Against the Grain Brewery & Smokehouse

If you’re an avid reader, this is the moment you’ve been training for: a chance to showcase your literary knowledge with a trivia event sponsored by the Louisville Free Public Library’s adult winter reading program, Books & Brews 502. If you don’t do as well as you thought you would, start studying up for next time with a visit to LFPL’s pop-up library, which will be on site starting at 6 p.m.

The Office Trivia and Costume Contest
World of Beer
No cover  |  7-9 p.m.
In the inspirational words of Michael Scott (Wayne Gretsky), “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,” and this is a shot you’re not going to want to miss, so you should probably take it. Dress up as your favorite “The Office” character and bring your encyclopedic knowledge to crush this trivia tournament. Watch out for drink specials and gift card prizes. Those who come in costume will be given a chance to win an extra something-something.
