  • January 28 – 51 Main in Middlebury from 8-10pm hosted by Matt Floyd. It will continue on the first Wednesday of each month while college is in session. There is a bar and good food.
  • February 11 at the Waybury Inn in East Middlebury from 8-10pm. The next one will be Tuesday, March 17th and continue on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesdays

Please spread the word!
