Glore Psychiatric Museum
At one point in its 123-year history, St. Joseph's State Lunatic Asylum No. 2 held around 3,000 patients. Though the hospital is no longer operational, the imposing brick building now houses the Glore Psychiatric Museum (3406 Frederick, one mile west of Interstate 29, off Exit 47, 800-530-8866). Over a 40-year period, George Glore collected and maintained the museum's display, giving us the opportunity to get an extensive look into the history of mental-health care. The museum features a wide range of apparatuses used to treat patients, as well as a large display of artwork (much of it quite beautiful) made by the hospital's patients. A particularly memorable exhibit is the display of the more than 1,000 nails, pins and other objects removed from a patient's stomach in 1929. Admission costs $3 for students, $4 for seniors and $5 for adults. The museum is open today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, see stjosephmuseum.org/glore.htm. $3-$5

ReelSmart Trivia
Quick: Who is Melissa McCarthy's famous hot cousin? Which 2012 Best Supporting Actress nominee is the only one of the group with a previous nod? In what film nominated for Best Picture in 2011 did 2012 Best Actress nominee Rooney Mara play a small role? If film trivia is your thing, it's time to let your gold star shine at ReelSmart Trivia at Screenland Armour (408 Armour Road, in North Kansas City, 816-421-9700). Because the theater is showing the Oscars promptly at 7 p.m. in the main auditorium, tonight's installment of the weekly competition begins in the same place at 4:30, instead of its usual 6 p.m. start, making it convenient for those fans wanting to stay for the live telecast. The cost to play is $5, and the first- and second-place teams divide the pot 60-40. For more information, search for ReelSmart Trivia at Screenland Armour on Facebook. (Answers: Jenny McCarthy, Janet McTeer, The Social Network.) $5

Sonic Spectrum Music Trivia
If the names David Robert Jones and John Simon Richie mean anything to you, it's probably time to ditch your typical trivia night and head on over to Sonic Spectrum Music Trivia at the Record Bar. David Bowie and Sid Vicious would be pleased as punch that you remembered their given names, and trivia host Robert Moore might even give you props. The host of KRBZ 96.5's Sonic Spectrum and owner of OxBlood Records now moonlights as a trivia honcho from 7 to 9 every Monday night. "It's something I've wanted to do forever," Moore says. The format is modeled on Thursday night's Trivia Clash: Each participant buys in with $5, and the winning team takes 60 percent of the pot, with the runner-up netting 40 percent. $5

Blue Monday poetry and open-mic
Are the words swirling in your head begging to be vocalized? Are they written on bits of paper, bar napkins and backs of receipts? Do you lack the confidence to share your creation with others? Sounds like you need the Writers Place (3607 Pennsylvania, 816-753-1090). For those wanting to ease into the literary waters, the midtown center is collaborating with the Uptown Arts Bar &(3611 Broadway, 816-960-4611) for Blue Mondays, a free spoken-word open mic, the second Monday of each month. Sign up at the bar. The event lasts from 8 to 10 p.m. See writersplace.org for more information. free

Indigo Wild factory tours

Indigo Wild factory tours
Employees at Indigo Wild liken their work environment to recess, with dancing and laughing and sometimes dogs — up to 16 at a time. The old brick warehouse that's home to Zum Bar offers tours at 1 p.m. Thursdays by appointment. Inside the playground-cum-business (3125 Wyandotte, 800-361-5686), you can witness the from-scratch soap-making process, which includes something that sounds complex and mysterious: "saponification." If the heavenly scents provoke you to purchase some Zum, be sure to look in the scrap bin, where soaps with imperfections — bars that came out as ovals rather than circles, for instance — are sold at a discount. We can hope that the tour concludes with a game of Red Rover. For more information, call 816-285-4224. free
