Come join us for One Game Wednesday! Where we can play one long game that we normally can't get to on game nights. NO FILLERS allowed here. This is only for games that run 2-5 hours in length. Heavy Euros Encouraged!
Every Wednesday night, 5 pm to 9 pm, the Amtgards and some of the Pirates and few random others get together to sew costumes, make/repair foam weapons and work on various other projects, and they are happy to have others join them to share in the big open useful space afforded by the back warehouse at Great Escape Games. So if you got stuff to work on and would rather work on it around people and get out of the house, or need some more room to spread out, or want to pick someone's brain, or want to find out more about Amtgard or Pirates, or need to do some gaming shopping, or just about any excuse you can think of, feel free to come on over to Great Escape Games near the corner of Howe and Hurley! If you've never been there, there store can be kinda hard to find the first time, it's in the backside of the shopping center, on the right side of it. 1250 Howe Avenue, Ste. A.
You may have smelt him at Karma Brew, heckled him at Alley Katz, but now he's all yours every week at Captiol Garage!!!!
That's right, Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz has a new Quizmaster at Capitol Garage!!!!
The format stays the same, just add a lot more foul language and random music on breaks.
It is 8 rounds of Quizzy goodness, with 5 separate opportunities to win a free beer, as well as gift cards for the first and second place teams. If there are enough teams there even is a third place prize.
So come on out to what is one of the best Pub Quizes on the grid!!!! And make sure to say Hi to Josh (He doesn't bite....much)!!!
Every Thursday night from 5-8pm Empire's Comics Vault (https://www.facebook.com/EmpiresComics) is offering writers a place to get creative. Get out of the house and come down for some dedicated, distraction free writing where you can meet other local writers, get inspired and put some valuable words to paper. Outlets available if you prefer to use your laptop.
The purpose of this event is to bring the creative community of Sacramento together and have a few pints at the same time. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or a seasoned vet, have a comic or manga style, traditional artist or graf artist. We just want to hang out with people like ourselves and hopefully make some friends along the way.
Every third Thursday of the month.

Tired of pretending?
You want to know what the masters knew?
Now is your chance!
Sacramento HEMA is looking for students. We are part of a movement to recapture the historical European martial arts, the real martial arts, not Hollywood. Master like Liechtenaur, Meyer, Faulkner, Ringeck, and Liberi left their knowledge written in treatises for the ages to study. You can be part of it.
We practice Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), starting from the writings of Liechtenauer and Ringeck. Our weapon of choice is the German longsword. Let’s get together and learn what has been lost.
We meet weekly.
Aaron Harmon can be reached at [masked].
