If you’re in the mood for a few good laughs (and we mean really good ones), save this Saturday and hit the Ottobar for a free evening of fantastic standup. Mike Quindlen is an amazingly funny guy who’s put together a monthly comedy night that will knock your socks off. The show starts early– doors are at 7pm, and comedy starts at 7:30.
