Ask Roulette featuring Clinton Yates, Tamara Keith, and John Dickerson ♦

Apr 12 2014 6:00 pm
Apr 12 2014 7:00 pm

Join P&P staff and special guests Jody Avirgan and Eli Bolin for an evening of strangers asking each other any questions they want to, big or small, in front of a live audience. Come with a question you want to ask a stranger. If you get called on stage you'll be able to ask your question, but only after you answer a question of your own. (Don't worry, you can also just watch.) Questions are serious or silly, and answers are short or long. Over the course of the event, there will be unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation—and laughter.

With special guests:

+ Clinton Yates of the Washington Post
+ NPR's Tamara Keith
+ Slate and CBS’s John Dickerson  
+ and of course house band Eli Bolin


Beer and wine will be available.
