*Please note, this event’s time has been shifted forward and will now take place 3pm to 6pm PT.  (The previously advertised time of 6pm PT to 9pm PT is NOT accurate.) Due to a software error, the tags on this page still say the old, inaccurate time. Again, the correct time is 3pm to 6pm PT. Thank you for your patience!
