Ben Franklin said “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy,” President Lyndon Johnson referred to boardgames as “incredible inventions.” Now the chocolate and peanut butter that is Beer and Boardgames is together at last!
At long last Beer & Boardgames has found a home in Chapel Hill! With parking, even! I know, I know, they said it couldn't be done. They laughed, LAUGHED, at my dream of a Chapel Hill bar based meet-up event! Well, who's laughing now?
We'll be having our next Beer & Boardgames at the W XYZ Lounge at the Aloft Hotel, on Sunday, March 3rd (just think of it as February 30th). We will be starting an hour later, at 3:00 pm, as a way to help you, our members, get acclimated to Daylight Savings time a week early. W XYZ has a Sunday special that includes half-off on all house beer, wine, and liquor. Because the complex that houses Aloft is a socially and environmentally responsible 'mixed use' development, which houses other shops, apartments and condo units, W XYZ has asked us to park at the SECU bank directly across the street.
So come join me at the W XYZ Lounge on Sunday March 3rd at 3:00 pm. As always, we'll have a large selection of games on-hand, including several varieties of Risk, and games small, large, simple and complicated. Our signature duct tape name-tags will be standard equipment.
As always, I'll need a good head-count so I can inform the manager what type of set-up, and service our group will need. Like all Active Gamers events, is open only to members who have payed their 2013 annual dues. Spots are limited, please check your calendars before signing up, or if something comes up, change your status as soon as possible, so folks on the waiting list will know not to make different plans.
Please use the comments to request a game you particularly want to play, or let the rest of the group know if you're going to bring a game and/or if you're willing to run or demo something. Also, use the comments for carpooling/dinner/dancing plans for before or after the event.
See everyone there.
