Having your pick of cool things to do in Saint Louis? Priceless

Thursday, October 23rd, a week from today, a curious thing is happening, never mind that it is by accident, or that it might ruffle a few feathers (you know, cuz competition is bad).

That's right, I'll put it out there, I think its good that people have a choice. Not that I don't love having a designated place to know I'm going to see everyone, and not that I particularly like spreading thin an already (relatively) small number of interesting people, but to me, it's not unimportant that I have to make a choice between three events that I want to attend. Were I in Chicago, NYC, etc. etc., this would be a weekly, if not daily dilemma.
Therefore, I'm kind of excited.

Ok, you are raving about three quality events, what are they?
..Right, sorry, so the events, in terms of timing are:

Saint Louis Graduate Students happy Hour
Just what it sounds like, except that you don't need to be a graduate student to attend. And the best part, first $200 bar tab on Hillel!

Finally, Metrobowl!
Making public transportation sexy, grab your friends for a night out bowling and get discounts just for riding the Metro!

Show your Metro ticket at the door and get your hand stamped for free shoe rental and half off on your second game. And when the night is over, let Metro be your designated driver.
