HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE VGC!!! Come celebrate our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

Come have some cake and celebrate with the VGC! We've been holding Meetups for a year and it's time to celebrate! Bring your friends out to Headquarters Beercade for an afternoon of drinking and gaming. And don't worry... the cake is not a lie with this Meetup!

 

The Drink Special: $50 for 3 hours of drinking. This equals to less than $17 an hour.  If you are wanting to party, it's a great deal...  However you are not obligated to purchase this deal. If you aren't drinking or won't drink enough for the special, then you don't have to pay the fee, just purchase on your own.

 

All of Headquarters' games are on free play and they have a great selection of arcade games that WORK! A great space with great staff. We really had a good time the last time we went and they were happy to take us for this one year anniversary! You can check them out at http://hqbeercade.com/ .  They have great cocktails and beers on tap.

It's located near the Brownline for people on CTA and the parking is decent at that hour in the area as well.

 

Bring your friends along for a great time! The more the merrier!

This event is for 21+.

    It was AWESOME. I've never been there and I will definitely be going there again with friends in the near future. I'm really glad to be apart of this new Chicago Video Gamers club. You all are cool people.

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend. Hopefully local flooding from all of this weather won't make the commute too troublesome.

  • Erik

    since this will be my first official meetup gathering, can I give you the club fee there and then personally?

    April 1, 2013

    • Amanda

      Sure, the $1 "due" isn't mandatory but does go to helping us pay for the Meetup site and any other costs that come around. It's like NPR.

    I can’t make it to this meetup but I will have a special discount at my venue (EXP Gaming) that same day (5pm-12am) for all Chicago Video Gamers Club members as well as their friends. I’ll post more details here and on fb later.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
