Secret Handshake #45: Betty Boop Dance Card Demo

Long-time Secret Handshake member Mickey Blumental is working on a new and exciting iOS game under his company, Fowl Moon Studios! Come down to Secret Handshake on Feb. 20th for a pre-release look at Betty Boop Dance Card.  

You'll be the first people in the world to play the game, plus you'll get to hang out at the pub and enjoy a live performance of the game's music composed by local Kenley Kristofferson and performed by both Kenley and Camilla Bard (the voice of Betty Boop). The live performance is at 20:00.

Oh, plus the usual mingling with Winnipeg's creative folk.

    I'm hoping to make it out a bit later, but I thought I was going to be able to get out of my choir practice tonight and it turns out I can't.

    Sorry folks, have a client deadline that needs my attention. If I make good progress, I might stop in later in the evening, though!

    Hi all! Haven't been to a gathering yet but I'm assuming they go on for a little while? I can't be there right away but I'd love to come!

      Yes, we'll be there most of the night! It gets started at 5:30, the crowd "peaks" at about 7pm, then we usually stick around till at least 9:30. Sometimes later... hehehe. Looking forward to meeting you Tiffany!

    Absolutely! It tends to thin out by 10:00, but we'll usually be there until they close up the floor.

    We'll see you on the 20th!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
