SOUTH BEND — It was not your typical Mayor’s Night Out, but these aren’t typical times for Pete Buttigieg.

During his more than seven years as mayor, before announcing he was exploring a run for president in late January, Buttigieg had tried to host Mayor’s Night Out every other month, intended as a way to periodically bring his office to the people rather than requiring them to visit him on the County-City Building’s 14th Floor.

He usually does them in school gymnasiums or city recreational centers, where he sets up a card table and gives anyone with a comment, question or complaint about city business up to five minutes of one-on-one time, usually drawing about 50 people.

On Thursday night, about 180 people came to the South Bend Civic Theatre’s 200-seat Wilson Theatre for the first Mayor’s Night Out in more than four months.
