Encyclopedia Show: February 7th in History

The Encyclopedia Show is a live variety extravaganza that commissions local and touring artists and experts from many disciplines to use their individual talents to present a verbal and musical encyclopedia entry each month. Though the show is accredited by the Institute of Human Knowledge and Hygiene, it is our ongoing mission to chafe against logic and proof, find meaning in obfuscation, and wrest truth from fact once and for all.  This month, the topic of the show will be the day February 7th in history. With presentations on topics like the creation of Monopoly in 1935, the ruling on Prop 8 in 2012, and the Baltimore Fire in 1904, we're sure you'll learn more about this amazing one-of-a-kind day that only happens once every 365 days.
