Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Act 3 is slated to start SUNDAY, February 21stAct 2 (and Act 1) isn’t going anywhere, so if you didn’t finish it you’ll still have time to. Look for Act 3 to start around 9am ET.  (1400 UTC)
You’ll need Marge and Homer free for the first round of tasks (and those earning event currency).  Also, 1 new premium character combo will be released to help with the event,  150 donuts for the combo. And Act 3 is where Gil will make his appearance…175 donuts for the Gil “deal”.

Now on with the Act 2 Dialogue…
