The University of New Mexico Louie's Lounge celebrates its first birthday Friday, April 5, from noon – 4 p.m. Free food and drink will be served at 12:30 p.m., cake at 1:30 p.m. Live music featuring a DJ will also be on hand. The event is free and open to students, staff, faculty and campus visitors.

Louie's Lounge is a full service game room with pool tables, ping-pong, Xbox 360, darts and flat screen TVs. All amenities are free during the event.

Last year, staff at Louie's Lounge redesigned the game room, transforming the space into a hip and vibrant atmosphere for students and the campus community. With a new look and welcome feel, the lounge now serves a larger, more diverse group of students.

The lounge is located on the lower level of the UNM Student Union Building, and is open Monday through Sunday, offering pool and the Xbox 360 for a low price, while ping-pong and darts are free.
