GeekWire Calendar picks: Robothon, Decibel Festival, Bootstrap Week and more

headerSure enough, as the chilly winds of fall start blowing in, Pacific Northwesterners leave their rooftop parties and outdoor picnics and start moving indoors for warmer surroundings. We also find events becoming increasingly content-driven as the “back to school” feeling takes hold. Here’s some events, both educational and of lighter fare to help you ease in to fall.

JOYstick_11x17_bleedJOYStick! Level 2: I had the great pleasure of attending the last JOYstick (Level 1, I guess) and I even wrote about it here. If you’re a fan of burlesque or a fan of video games or maybe you’re a fan of both, you should DEFINITELY go to this super fun event.

When: Friday, September 20th, 8:00 pm.
