The Audacity of Desperation

Avi Alpert and Sreshta Rit Premnath will be playing a game of Carrom, a tabletop game somewhat similar to billiards, between 6 and 8 pm on Saturday June 21st. Visitors are encouraged to join them (up to 4 people can play at a time). They will be happy to explain the rules of the game for those who have not played and also to converse about anything that may be of interest. Tea and cookies will be served, and books and seating will be made available for those who prefer to watch the game or read something rather than participate.
