“Q and Ale” Trivia Night for Undergraduates at the Newberry
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Newberry’s Ruggles Hall, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago, IL 60610
If you’ve ever considered thinking and drinking mutually exclusive, take note of Francois Rabelais, who once said, “When I drink, I think; and when I think, I drink.” If that’s not convincing enough, prepare for the ultimate rebuttal. Serving up beer and braininess in equal measure, the event is part of the Newberry’s celebration of its 125th anniversary.
WGN Radio host Rick Kogan will emcee and Half Acre Brewing will supply the beer—although non-alcoholic drinks will be available for those under 21. Snacks will also be served.  All you have to do is show up. Match wits with your peers, and vie for the ultimate prize: bragging rights in perpetuity and a t-shirt.

Q and Ale” will be held in the Newberry’s Ruggles Hall; since seating is limited and we are holding our list of attendees to 250, please RSVP to attend. To RSVP, please email Q&Ale@Newberry.org. We hope to see you soon for some spirited thinking and drinking. For more information about the Newberry, check out: http://newberry.org
