The Student Drama Association meets Tuesdays from 1:05 – 1:50 p.m. in the UAF Theatre Green Room.  If you have an interest in student theatre production, this might be the organization for you. I spent about four years laughing, crying and screaming my way through my last theatre experience.  Honestly, it was a lot of fun and I found out early on that if you’re in a position to bury yourself in piles of discarded costumes, people have a harder time finding you when you’re trying to nap in peace.  I can’t say it’s the same experience everywhere, but it’s an experience any way you look at it. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

Starvation Gulch Bonfires 10:00pm at the Nenana Parking Lot – What’s not to not like about a 79 year tradition of lighting $#!& on fire! Watching the swirling plumes of fire is always fun for anyone with even the slightest hint of pyromaniac tendencies. If you have an experience similar to mine, you also get to enjoy such fun as being thrown into the air against your consent and engaging in crowd-surfing and then later having a drunk stranger try to kiss you. Oh joy. But hey, there is also free food so by all means attend, but stay alert and stay safe. Or just stay home with a big bowl of popcorn, watch a good movie and not have strangers try to put their face on your face. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

The Blue Loon will host ACEP and the Institute of the North’s showcase of University of Alaska Fairbanks research about Arctic peoples and energy.  The Ted Talk-style presentation will take place from 5-8 p.m.  Entry is free, and this will be an all-ages event.

There will be a partial lunar eclipse, which should be visible from about 7:33-8:27 p.m.  Look to the stars! – Danny Fisher / Editor

Monday Night Football at The Pub, 4:30p.m. What could be better than a four-hour celebration of American freedom in the form of armored-up half-giants colliding with each other in the most frightening and potentially brain damage-causing way possible? All of the above, but enjoyed with beers, nachos, and a bunch of other people yelling about it.  This week is Kansas City versus Green Bay, which doesn’t seem like a matchup Alaskans would care much about, but hey, any excuse to get out, right? – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor
