GeekWire turns three next month, and we’re celebrating in style. Geek style, that is.

We’re hosting a huge anniversary bash at the Showbox Sodo on March 20, an epic party complete with our all-time favorite geek sports of ping pong and foosball. (Slots for the official tournaments are filling up fast, so make sure to sign up today if you want to compete).

We’ve got a ton of fun stuff in store for the party — awesome prizes, exciting activities and some surprise guests.  Just a few of the highlights: A ping pong ball scavenger hunt presented by DoubleDown Interactive; a DanceDanceRevolution dance-off presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union, and, back by popular demand, beer pong presented by Barokas PR.

Budweiser will once again sponsor the Foosball tournament, presenting tickets to the Anheuser-Busch suite for an upcoming Sounders match to the winning team. They’ll also award this year’s “Spirit Prize” — an amazing mini-foosball table that doubles as a beer cooler — presented to the team that best flies their geek flag for the evening.

I’ll be dusting off the John McEnroe costume again, representing one of my favorite ’80s sports stars. Bring it on expert ping-pongers, I am ready for ya!

No one can beat “Johnny Mac!”

Early-bird ticket prices expire this Friday, so make sure to grab your friends and join one of the best tech events of the year.
