After such a warm day, there are two options for your early evening: first, Amnesty International’s cleverly named “Jamnesty,” which will combine live music with a free “Ethiopian dinner.” Apparently, live music plus Ethiopian food equals “almost like the 60s… minus the pot.” The potless-ness begins at 8:30 in Earl Hall Auditorium.
