Saturday, May 27 — The Dark Event! No entertainment

Enough already, we're as sick of the "entertainment" as you're sick of the cover charge -- so screw it! Entertain your own damn selves! We'll grudgingly bring you the great food and beer you've come to expect, but really, that's it. 
Whatever you do, drive safe, cause you can't stay here overnight.
