Date: Monday, April 8

Time: Party All Day! Rally in Kiener Plaza-9am-2pm. Game starts at 3:15pm

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
