    A fantastic watch.

  • Rich Wilson

    That’s a ‘sitting room only’ crowd! Hope there were no fire marshal issues.

  • Guest

    takes balls to go to a theocracy like S.C. and talk about facts and evidence not found in their Bronze Age hand book.

Great city with an awesome art scene as well.
