You’re Invited! Retro Game Night in Bellingham

Hello dear readers:

If you live in the Bellingham (Washington) area, there’s a rad event going on next Wednesday, August 22nd at  9:00PM at the Glow nightclub downtown. My work is co-hosting a retro gaming night, where there will be loads upon loads of game consoles from yesteryear to play all night long, Along with some other events:

1) Super Mario Bros. Speed Run Competition
– Warp zones allowed

2) Duck Hunt Competition
– Standardized distance at 5′ with 2 ducks.

3) King Of The Hill Arcade Tournament Including Soul Calibur, Tekken Tag, Street Fighter II, Bubble Bobble and In The Hunt.
– One credit scoring will be ranked into a point system of placement.

4) Retro Video Game Costume Contest
– Winner will be announced at the end of the night.

For full details on the event are available on the facebook page, Click here!

Cover is $3, and the event is 21+ because it’s at a bar and there is alcohol at bars, and also laws about alcohol and young people and blah blah blah.

If you’re in the area, stop by and say hi! I will be there, repping Full Nova Zero, hogging the NES playing Metroid or losing horribly at DDR.

(I realize DDR is not retro. Think of it as gaming for the sake of gaming.)

Hope to see you there!
