Geeks Who Drink Trivia

Game-X (275 Baker St. Nw) from 8PM-11PM

Ah yes! The grand old trivia contest. It’s like the nerd equivalent of “who’s is bigger”. Establish your nerd dominance over $11 wings & beer specials. Once you have thwarted your foes in mental combat, turn your attentions to conquering the BEER TOWER. And of course, to the victor goes the give-away prizes. Truly this is what is best in the life…

Harry Potter Paint Night

Mellow Mushroom (1679 Lavista Rd NE) from 7PM-10PM

Honestly, I couldn’t tell you what house I should be in or what my patronus is…actually I’m pretty sure ‘patronus’ is the scientific name for a naughty bit of anatomy…but at any rate, you can ride a broom down to the Mellow Mushroom for a night of wizardry painting, pizza, and craft beer. For only $20, you get all the art supplies you need to join in on a Harry Potter themed painting instruction. Or you can be so muggle like me and enjoy the special  Raspberry Berliner Weisse from Monday Night Garage.

Bit Brigade performs “The Legend of Zelda” @ The EARL – Fri, 4/6 at 9pm

When Bit Brigade rolls into town, the gamer elite hangs up the controller for the evening and see a rock show. With unprecedented attention to detail and post-rock bombast, Bit Brigade meticulously replicates every musical cue, cutscene and boss battle in perfect synchronization with master gamer Noah McCarthy’s inspiring speed-run of each level. Bit Brigade elevates game music to its proper place in the foreground of epic technical rock and plays the games like they don’t need the extra lives. Which, for the record, they don’t.
