The Geek Society is celebrating seven glorious years with a lucky #7 Vegas party, bay-bay!
Slap on your best casino duds (go full on black tie or ham it up as an old retiree blowing their pension at blackjack while wearing a Hawaiian shirt, a sun visor and sipping complimentary cocktails, or a too-coo-for-school poker pro with sunglasses, a popped collar, while drinking a microbrew you can only get special from some backwater town in Minnesota no one has ever heard of) and enjoy a night of games, booze, and prizes with your fellow geeks!
There will be random draw door prizes, game prizes, and a grand prize for best Bad Cosplay! What's Bad Cosplay? Here's a link with some suggestions:
But basically, just take an outfit that screams Vegas and make it in the most awful way possible. Wanna be a showgirl? Might I suggest duct-tape flamingo feathers and a thrift store one-piece? Wanna headline the Grand as Lady Gaga? How bout a cardboard meat-dress and a bad wig? The possibilities are endless and the worse it is, the better your chances of winning!
Now, while this is a more mature theme than normal, the 1UP party is all ages and children are welcome, just keep in mind that alcohol will be present and it is your responsibility to look after your own children, but that aside, we would be delighted to see your geeklings walking the geeky Sunset Strip!
As hosts, we will supply some drinks and snacks, but as always, please feel free to chip in by bringing some items of your own, we can even make this an all out Vegas style buffet with a full blown potluck if enough people join in!
Now, as I mentioned, the alcohol will be flowing pretty freely, and safety is a major concern we have, and while we do have a limited amount of room for people to crash here, we do ask that anyone who plans on drinking please taking the time beforehand to work out how they will be getting home.
This is a huge milestone for us and all the admins and moderators here at the Geek Society are so happy to share it with all of you!
Can't wait to see you all there!
