Game Night & Thanksgiving Food Drive

Oh, It's On Like Donkey Kong. And this time, we're playing games for a worthy cause! 

For entry into this event, we ask you to pay $1 towards our Board Game fund and bring at least 2 food items (canned foods, cereals, pastas, dry goods, non-perishables, etc) per person. Please take note that is you don't bring a food donation, then we will charge $5 admission into this event and the proceeds will be donated to our charity. 

All food and monetary donations will be given to the Durham Rescue Mission, where we will be volunteering on Thanksgiving at the food kitchen.


What Can I Expect? 
Game Night will be taking place at Tomato Jakes in Durham starting at 9 PM. This event will be open to everyone - both singles and couples alike. When you arrive you will check in, give us your food donation (or $3 if you forget to bring a donation) and grab a free goodie bag. From there, you can opt to choose a board game from our "Board Game Library" or walk around and join a game in progress.

I anticipate over 85 people attending this event and it going on waaaaaaaaaay into the night, so arrive as soon as you can to reserve a seat (and a game). We will probably end the event around 1:00 AM.



Cards Against Humanity Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.

Can I Bring My Own Board Game to Play?

Yes! In fact, the more games the merrier! 

Does Tomato Jakes Serve Alcohol?
Yes! They serve beer and wine, but please remember to drink responsibly! 

Is this a Singles Event?
No, this is a social event that is open to everyone. Since there will be singles attending, Master Dater Speedating will be distributing Mardi Gras beads to all the singles in the room - just a fun way to meet fellow singles ;-)

**This event is open to all people - both singles and couples alike. It's purpose is to be a fun social event so you can meet new people and make new friends! Please note that there will be a $5 door cover if you fail to bring a donation to this event.**

    Hi Everyone! Please don't forget to bring two canned goods (or 2 non-perishable food items) with you for entry into this event! I'm hoping to raise 200 items to donate to the Durham Rescue Mission. Thank you!!!
