    I think I noticed an Albanian, lesbian, physically-challenged, Zoroastrian in the picture. If that’s not a minority, I don’t know what is.

    Thanks for covering and supporting this event Sunnyside Post. There is still more work to be done and we are continuing our efforts with a Battle of The Bars Trivia night at Dog and Duck on December 2nd starting at 8pm. Each team buys into the event with $20 and the proceeds go right to relief efforts.

    The best team will leave with a trophy for their bar and gift certificates for local businesses given out through the night!

    We know we will see you and your readers there 🙂

    Thank you Sunnyside!
