GeekOut Bristol Meet - December 7th: The Hogfather's Here
18+ Event It's the night before the night before the nigh-- It's a number of days before Christmas and all throughout the pub, plenty of geeks were drinking and enjoying good grub. But lo, who's that at the rear? Santa Claus? No, the Hogfather's Here! ----------------------- FOODIE PRE-MEET TBC (TBC): ----------------------- As ever, we love a good nomming session before GeekOut Bristol Meet, we'll be putting up a poll for the pre-meetup on Sunday 18th, so watch this space for more info. ----------------------- MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern) ----------------------- With it being Christmas, we're going to celebrate all that is good within our geeky fandoms. We'll have our usual competition, but further to that, we're bringing back, for the fourth year, our super popular Super Secret Santa! Yasss! PLEASE NOTE: Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you've disposed of your food or drink. There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is cheap and it's delicious - usually available from 6pm. Final note: If you are asked for ID by the bar staff, we will not vouch for your age - You must provide ID. ----------------------- BOARD GAMES (& a dash of video games) ----------------------- As always, we'll have a large selection of board games available, so please do check out what we have: - Bears vs Babies - Bucket of Doom - Cards Against Humanity (UK Edition + Expansions 1, 2 and 3) - Cash n Guns - Chess - Exploding Kittens - Fluxx - Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit - Jungle Speed - Love Letter - Pokemon Monopoly - Rogues to Riches - Scrabble - Star Trek Settlers of Catan - Three Wishes - Unusual Suspects - Zombie Munchkin - Zombies! AND MANY MORE! We won't be bringing every game listed above with us: If there's a specific game you want to see, please let me know in the comments below. A new game will be brought along if possible. Once we know what it is, we'll announce it in the comments. ----------------------- COSPLAYERS (After Super Secret Santa) ----------------------- IT'S CHRISTMAS! Even if you don't turn up in costume, we'll look to be giving out santa hats. So no matter what, you get a freebie for this event. Isn't that cool? We'll get a massive picture of as many of you lovely geeks in the conservatory, if possible! *CHANGING FACILITIES* If you want to change into a costume when here, please note there are no changing facilities. There are just standard toilet cubicles - Which are fine to change in, but you might want to consider this first. ----------------------- COMPETITION: GeekOut's Christmas Calendar ----------------------- As it's going to be Christmas season, the competition is super simple. We're going to make our own Christmas Calendar! Up to 25 people can win a small prize. Throughout the day, until it's finished, you'll get to open a window and answer a tough quiz question. Get it right, the prize is yours! If you get it wrong, someone else can take that same window, should they want to. ----------------------- SUPER SECRET SANTA: 9pm (Conservatory) ----------------------- Yes, it's Christmas, so it's GeekOut's Bristol's 'famous' Super Secret Santa time! The rules are simple: > £10 limit. > Buy a geeky present. > Wrap it up (consider using craft paper!) > Bring it in. > You'll get a piece of paper - We'll trade that paper for a random present. It's completely random, so buy a cool geeky gift that anyone can enjoy. Give it some thought :) I already know what I'm getting ;) ---- As part of our commitment to being a great night out, we do not discriminate based upon age (although our age requirement is venue policy), disability, gender, race, religion or sexuality. If at any point you feel you need to speak to someone about another's actions, please grab the host (Timlah) and we'll sort it out!

    What we're about

    For geeks, by geeks. GeekOut South-West is a Geek social group based in Bristol, UK. Looking to meet fellow geeks over a pint, or a meal in pubs and other venues of choice. Events, trips, new friends and geekery abound, GeekOut South-West is looking to meet you!

    We're a Social Group

    GeekOut started off in Bristol and since inception, people across the UK have been contacting us via email (geekoutsw@gmail.com) and asking how we got started off. The honest, but hard answer is: We just begun. Someone needs the drive to organise a group to be formed... And thankfully, I stuck it out, through the low initial numbers to the massive collection of amazing geeks we have today.

    We get together once a month as a collection of really nice, friendly people... And we share our geekdoms with one another and indeed others who come to the pub. From board games to comics, cosplay to video games, literature to technology - If it's geeky, we're interested!

    We're a Website

    We believe in making a difference to geek culture, not just here in Bristol, but across the UK and indeed the world. Every day, there's a new article on something within geek culture, as well as information about our meetups, our competitions and more.

    The website is managed by myself, Timlah and a guy called Joel who lives up in Shropshire. You can get in contact with both of us via the website and social media, as well as email (geekoutsw@gmail.com). We receive regular articles from our very own Chris Lock as well - So please check us out. We're an honest trio who want to expand and make this a bigger, better platform for everyone.
