  • The Devil in the White City August Meetup

    Panera Bread

    For August we are reading The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Below is the goodreads description: Erik Larson's gifts as a storyteller are magnificently displayed in this rich narrative of the master builder, the killer, and the great fair that obsessed them both. Two men, each handsome and unusually adept at his chosen work, embodied an element of the great dynamic that characterized America's rush toward the twentieth century. The architect was Daniel Hudson Burnham, the fair's brilliant director of works and the builder of many of the country's most important structures, including the Flatiron Building in New York and Union Station in Washington, D.C. The murderer was Henry H. Holmes, a young doctor who, in a malign parody of the White City, built his "World's Fair Hotel" just west of the fairgrounds—a torture palace complete with dissection table, gas chamber, and 3,000-degree crematorium. Burnham overcame tremendous obstacles and tragedies as he organized the talents of Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles McKim, Louis Sullivan, and others to transform swampy Jackson Park into the White City, while Holmes used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths. What makes the story all the more chilling is that Holmes really lived, walking the grounds of that dream city by the lake. Feel free to bring questions about this book, or book suggestions for next month! We have this posted three different places right now, so if you only see one or two RSVP's dont hesitate to come we have a pretty good sized group and love having new people join!

  • Play DJ Trivia Every Tuesday @ Thirsty Buffalo

    Thirsty Buffalo

    • What we'll do We regularly go to Thirsty Buffalo for Tuesday Night Trivia. To recap on how trivia works, it starts between 7:15 -7:30 and runs until 9-9:30. Our group generally arrives around 7:00 to grab tables. DJ Trivia is a general knowledge type of quiz. It encompasses everything from history, movies, pop culture, sports, and science, among many others. We are always looking for players who know anything about any and all subjects, especially people who know stuff about basketball or can identify pictures of celebrities. Each week, DJ Trivia's website posts a series of clues that hint at a handful of questions that might be asked tonight, along with a request to bring in an item for bonus points. If you are able to contribute to the bonus, it would be greatly appreciated. GAME FORMAT: The first 3 rounds have 4 multiple choice questions plus one "Do or Die" fill-in-the-blank/short answer question where you double your score from that round if you get it right, or lose all your points from the round if you get it wrong. There's no penalty for getting a multiple choice question wrong. Round 4 has 4 fill-in-the-blank/short answer questions that do not get a penalty for being wrong. The very last question is another Do-or-Die, only this time all or nothing from all of the points you have acquired in this round • What to bring Your brains. You may want to research the information given in the weekly bonus clue, and/or bring in the item needed for the bonus, if necessary. • Important to know Basic rules: -Please don't be on your phones before the answer is displayed. -No, you do NOT have to be smart to play trivia. The spirit of Tuesday Trivia is kinship and harmony! It's totally ok to come hang out without knowing any questions. Or maybe tonight is when your "pointless" Western Civ class finally pays off... -Let's all be nice to each other!! This is a very laid back, welcoming group and the more everyone gets along, the more fun it is.
