Re: ACF Regionals at the UChicago (2/23/2013)

Matthew Menard and Sam Bailey are hosting an after party, now that they've been badgered into it. Ask us about it on Saturday if you're already thinking, "Ah man, I've always wanted to get jiggy with Chicago quiz bowl."

Obviously, we will listen to plenty of Will Smith.
