BBC Regulars Exciting Upcoming Events!

 IT’S TONIGHT! THEME: Why Do You Do What You Do? “This was the first question we ever asked on the chalkboard by the happy hour bar, and we are revisiting it for this party. Bring your short answer and you may get a creative and memorable way to express it at the party (no, we won’t put you on the spot; trust us). Then, take this lightly, but we are also hoping for a ‘Steampunk’ look and feel for the party. Some accessories may be available once you arrive, but go to town with your own ideas if this retro-techno Victorian view of the future appeals. Expect prizes for creativity.” SIGN UP AT
