Yo worker peeps.
If you need a break from reality Thursday (Feb 5) night drop in at the OJ from 8-10 for some tasteless hijinx.
We will break out some drinks and the expansion pack for Cards Against Humanity and see who gets grossed out first!
Feel free to bring your naughty neighbor or a mixer... and an open mind.
