What more could you want? That’s right, tonight could be that hilarious yet romantic evening you’ve been waiting for. Just you, Andy from “the Office” (or Stu from the “Hangover,” pick your fancy), Marshall from “How I Met Your Mother” (or Nick from “Freaks and Geeks” – but we’d say go with Marshall) … and all the other people in Wheeler Hall.
