Call and get the schedule for when you are there. You’ll need to make reservations. I was told a day ahead but it was booked so call earlier. Fun time. Can order pizza in. Pizza is not that great but doable.

There is something undefinable about the Will o' the wisp. Is it the setting or the music or the beer and wine selection? Maybe it's trivia might or the pizza being delivered. Maybe it's the opportunity to meet new or old friends and have a...More
