    Mean Girls Trivia

    Is “fetch” going to happen? OK, that’s an easy one, but the five rounds of questions centered on the movie that had everyone wearing pink decades before the Barbie movie will get you digging deep in the Burn Book for answers. Get a team of up to six obsessives together, get in the spirit of the evening with a Mean look, and watch out for buses on your way to grab a beer on the patio.– James Renovitch

    Scribble After Dark

    You’re familiar with Scribble Showdown, where five of YouTube’s hottest animators compete against each other for their glory and your entertainment in an all-ages show? Well, leave the kids at home tonight, because Scribble After Dark is the more raucous, adult version of that – with Arin Hanson (Egoraptor) and the audience putting animators Odds1Out, JaidenAnimations, RubberRoss, and Domics through brand-new creative challenges where they’ll come up with shit as down and dirty as necessary to win. F-bombs dropping everywhere, OMG! Note: Ages 18+ only. – Wayne Alan Brenner
    Thu., Feb. 1, 7pm. $40-139.
