One of the greatest mysteries of life has always been: Where will Lion Moe take us on our Mystery Trip? Other mysteries to be answered on this trip are: Who will talk to us about the history of Ireland? Who will care? Who will need a ride home? Who will be left behind? Will we make it back without getting pulled over by the police? Only one way to find out the answer to these mysteries. Call Lion Moe at 251-6358 to reserve your seat on the mystery bus. BYOB for the bus trip. Soda pop and beer will be provided. Bus leaves the Eagles Club at 5:30 p.m.
