Rock Band Karaoke at Joystick Gamebar – Sat, 4/29 at 9pm
Grab yourself a Bourbon Coffee frosty drink thingy from the bar, and then head on over to the back event room for some Rock Band Karaoke! Fog machine, laser lights, and you with a fake guitar. Hosted by Sean Luke. Every Thursday & Saturday night starting at 10:00pm
NerdLanta + Battle & Brew Present: Nerdyoke!
This is far from any typical bar karaoke that you’re used to. What exactly is Nerdyoke? Come on out to Battle & Brew and find out for yourself. Hint: The title of the event should give you a pretty good idea of what you’ll be in store for. Join your hosts Adam & Kris as they roll out the tunes. Also, It’s highly encouraged to wear your cosplay at this event, but of course it’s completely up to you
To guarantee a spot in dining (where the action is happening) make a reservation in Open Table and put Nerdyoke in the notes section so we know where you want to be seated.
