Mutilated Saints Drunken Team Trivia Challenge

Join us for an encore opportunity to discover exactly who is the patron saint of explosions, which pope fathered the most illegitimate children while in office, and how Saint Bartholomew - who was flayed alive - ended up as the patron of cheese.

We're gathering at The Fox and Hounds, an awesome British pub located in the heart of Studio City, and we've enlisted Colin Dickey, author of Afterlives of the Saints: Stories from the Ends of Faith for an illuminating evening trivia challenge, full of deranged stories, little known facts and the often truly disturbing details of saint's lives - featuring such categories as "Awful Miracles," "Bad Popes," and "Mutilations."

Drunken trivia is best played in a team, so grab your friends and sign up together!
