OK, folks, the geek madness is about to begin.
The 2nd annual GeekWire Meetup and Game Night is coming up this Wednesday, July 10th, taking place at the Spitfire bar in Belltown from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are still available, but we’re nearing capacity so make sure to get yours today here.
Back by popular demand, we’ll be busting out one of our favorite board games of all time — geek favorite “Settlers of Catan.” We’re expecting a big crew of Catan fanatics, so if you’ve got an extra copy of the game or two, please bring it along.
If you’re not into Catan, DoubleDown Interactive will be transforming the back room of the Spitfire into a Vegas-style casino, complete with roulette, craps and black jack tables. They’ve got some great prizes in store — so make sure to test your luck with a chance to win an iPad mini or $100 gift certificates from Tom Douglas restaurants.
If you don’t want to try your hand at any of the games, just make sure to join the GeekWire community for some good food, drink and conversation. Also, stop by and say hello to TeachStreet founder Dave Schappell (back in Seattle from his worldwide tours with Amazon Web Services). Dave is buying the first round of drinks (so get there early). He’ll also be handing out $100 credits to AWS to the first 100 people who say “Hi Dave!”
A big thanks to GeekWire Game Night sponsors DoubleDown Interactive; Outlook.com; Summit Group Solutions; IMS Health/Appature; Point Inside and RichRelevance for helping to make this meetup possible. See everyone on Wednesday!
