SPACEWAR. Hell yeah!

Check out this museum exhibition. It's video games!

http://www.movingimage.us/exhibitions/2012/12/15/detail/spacewar-video-games-blast-off/

I will try to get there at 6pm, if not I will be there between 6:15-6:30. So I am splitting the difference to 6:15. That leaves us an hour and a half or more to play. Entrance is FREE ON FRIDAYS! You must pay to play the video games, though. I'll keep everyone updated on what time I think I can make it, but I will get there around that time period. I never got to play Galaxy Force 2 when I was a kid. Now that I'm an adult with money, maybe I will this time. If not, I will come back!

Afterwards we can eat at 5 napkin across the street. If nobody is up for that expensive food, there is a lot of stuff nearby including Panera Bread and empanadas. Nearby is a movie theater too, if anyone is crazy enough to stick around and watch the Hobbit again. Also nearby is Studio Square, a beer garden. We will discuss it after games.

I have in the works a plan to visit an arcade in the near future, stay tuned.

    This was a blast! The museum was exceptional, the bar was cool, and everyone was super fun to talk to. Eager to check out the next meetup.

    That was insane amounts of awesome. Everyone who showed up had mad fun at the bar afterwards.

    I'm actually here but I'm stifling hot waiting in the lobby. I might be standing outside instead. Just call or text when you all arrive.

    Hey anyone interested in coming a bit earlier (5 maybe)? I have a museum membership I can use so can get 2 free tickets

      Website says admission is free from 4pm on Fridays. I may actually be able to show up that early but there is no guarantee. I was able to leave work thursday at 4 but there's no telling about friday.

      Yep I should learn to read! It's all good I just wanted to check out other parts of the place, anyone wanting to meetup a bit earlier feel free to message me

    btw if you are late just come into the exhibit and find us, obviously we'll be near the video games. I'll send my phone number out on thurs night, text me if you need to. Also, thinking studio square is probably the best place after since it has lots of room and a good cheap selection of counter-service food and beers. Bring your ID.

    I won't be able to make this one. Meh.

      Scratch that, I thought it was this week. I can make it, I took that week off.

    For a few seconds, I got all excited and was like, "YEY! I CAN GO TO THIS!" Then I looked at the date and got all Charlie Brown Christmas music. I'll be in Florida. Serious Bummer.

      Just host a part 2 of this same meetup, if your schedule works for it. The only reason I have to do it that friday is because usually the last week of the year I tend to have an easier time leaving work early, (although there's no guarantee). However, I would definitely go back to the museum, for sure. I am down for arcades any time.
