Low (and Cultured) Roller Fun!

First, Get Your Culture On....
The Broadway revival of August Wilson's masterpiece Joe Turner's Come and Gone has racked up rave reviews, with The Times's Ben Brantley calling it "positively airborne." Tonight African-American scholar Prof. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will moderate a symposium exploring "the literary, political and topical changes in the African American experience from 1911, the year in which Joe Turner’s Come and Gone is set, to the present day." Times op-ed columnist Bob Herbert, award winning author John Edgar Wideman and critically acclaimed playwright Tracey Scott Wilson are expected to take part in what's sure to be an incisive (and free!) discussion.
Time : 7 p.m.
Location: Vivian Beaumont Theater, 150 W 65th St

Later, Get Your Beer and Ping Pong On!
Who doesn't love a little ping pong to start of the work week? The Bell House will have 4 tables set up for tournament style ping pong in their performance space. First come first serve for sign ups. The winner of this nights tournament will be flown to Vegas on Bud Light's dime to participate in the nationals and a chance to win $100,000 dollars. On top of that happy hour deal, aluminum pints of Bud & Bud Light will be $3 for the entire evening. So basically, everyone's a winner!
