The weekend of March 30-April 2 at Skutt Catholic, a couple celebrated their 5,000 wedding anniversary, a mammoth and a dinosaur ran rampant in a suburban backyard, and a young man from somewhere like New Jersey murdered his brother with a slingshot.

You step into a back room full of mosaic-covered tables and laughing people. It's dimly lit here; faces young, old, hipster, blue collar, and everything in between line the room, munching garlic bread or exchanging greetings across the room.
