Appetites and Bias
Join us for a TRULY EXCITING ODD SOCKS!
Award-winning writers Beth Dooley and Jessica Nordell are going to present a uniquely mis-matched evening of ideas.  Each will talk briefly about their passions. Then we turn it over to the audience to find similarities and make weird connections.
