GameNight! EXTRA! - at Surly Brewing Pizza Upstairs - $40 special deal on Weds.!

The Surly brewery has been offering a special Wednesday night deal on a pitcher of Surly beer, a pizza, and choice of either appetizer or salad for only $40. ....SWEET! It's in their "Pizza Upstairs" area. The pizza is good, the beer is good, the whole deal is good! And they encourage you to play some boardgames while you're there. They have some, I have more, and some folks have been bringing their own games for awhile now.... so let's join them! GameNight! is my brand for Meetup events that feature modern stuff to play. NO Monopoly allowed! LOL. Anything else like easy introductory games you could find at Target, up to hard-core brain-burner games from Kickstarter or BoardGameGeek.... if you want to play them, we can play them also. Drop in, buy some food and beers, have some fun for hours. Surly closes at 11pm, so if you get there at 4pm, it only costs $5.71/hr. at one of the best breweries around town. How can you go wrong? It might be the best pizza, beer, and company anywhere in town. Come in and join us at Surly Brewing Co. we will have board games for all types of board game enthusiasts, beer lovers, pizza eaters, and fun folks of any kind. You don't even need to play games! Just hang out with us if you'd like to just do that. We're friendly Meetup people who look forward to seeing you this Wednesday, or next Wednesday, or the Wednesday after that, or after that, or.... you get the idea! BTW.... I organized this for eleven different Meetup groups. If you only see my RSVP, don't worry - there will be a lot of people from Meetup to congregate with and have fun together. All are welcome, it's an inclusive event for everybody. Just drop in, go upstairs (they even have an elevator!), ....Meetup with others and have a good time! See you at Surly! your Host/organizer, Chris Hoppe T.T.F.N.

GameNight! Goes To The Oakdale Library On The Third Thursday Of Every Month!

The Oakdale Branch Library has been holding a adult monthly GameNight! session for awhile in their meeting room. They get a dozen or more regular boardgame players each month, and new members are always welcome! Come play table top games with fellow game enthusiasts! The library will provide games ranging from Uno and Connect Four to Splendor and Carcassonne, or you can bring your own to share. There's always lots of variety, and something for both new or experienced adult gameplayers. Lately, we have been moving to the nearby Hy-Vee Market Grille restaurant, half a mile away, after the library closes at 8PM. This lets us grab a bite to eat and drink (they serve alcohol!) and play some more games. Joining afterwards is voluntary, but socializing is a chance for more fun.... If you want to get your GAME ON! in the east metro area, this is your chance. We'll hope to see you on one of these upcoming 3rd Thursdays to play some boardgames with us at the Oakdale Branch Library! Roll for initiative!.... Your Meetup co-hosts, Chris Hoppe, and Natalie E. TTFN. ~~~ ~~~~ ~~~ P.S. - GameNight! session is in their meeting room to the left side as you enter the library. Call the Oakdale Library Branch at (651)[masked] for more information.
