Tabletop Tuesdays at Durty Nellie's

Tabletop gaming, fun movies, craft beer, and great people! Tabletop Tuesdays is a weekly event held at Durty Nellie's West Irish Pub in Palatine, right off of the Metra (Pacific Northwest).

We play all sorts of different games. Some of the popular titles include Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Lords of Waterdeep, Iliad, Legendary, The Resistance, King of Tokyo, and SO many others. There are usually over 50 games there and we generally have from 25 to 40 gamers attending each time!

We play from 7:00PM all the way until 3:00AM. Can't make it early in the evening? Show up late! Many of our members do exactly that. Durty Nellie's serves food until 10:00PM, offers a late night food menu until 2:00AM, and has a MASSIVE craft beer selection (over 25 taps and over 100 bottles).

Plenty of parking available - free parking in the garage after 5:00PM.

Feel free to come by, grab a pint, rolls some dice / play some cards / collect some cubes, watch some flicks, and meet-up with some fantastic other people!

If you're a member of Chicago Game Lovers as well; be sure to RSVP to the meetup there as well so we can tell the members there how much fun we have!

    We will be in Smith Street Station again this week due to the band "Man Man" putting on a show in the band room / mezzanine. Did you guys like the way I set it up last year, or would you like me to try something different?
