Drink and Draw: JAFAX 2.0 Preparty

Calling all local artists, booze drinkers, anime fans, manga readers, and local booze-drinking-anime-fan-manga-reading artists! Have you ever wanted to prep for the upcoming JAFAX Anime Convention by meeting local creatives, exchanging ideas, and swapping fandom stories over a cold pint?

Lucky for you, you’ll get the chance! And this time the party is gonna be too kawaii to live and too sugoi to die!

Come prepare for JAFAX 2.0 and ready your mental palette at another Party Table Drink and Draw. Join us at the Sundance Grill & Bar for an evening of sketching, drinking, just drinking until your sketches look good, and talking about anime. You bring your mad skills, or “talent,” we’ll bring the art supplies.

Crayons, pencils, and sharpies, as well as white and newsprint paper will be provided. General supplies may be limited, but artists with more discerning tastes are encouraged to bring their own fancy pencil boxes for personal use!

This event is a chance for us anime obsessed local creatives and JAFAX aficionados to gather together before a weekend indulging in some fantastic fandom to exchange wisdom and vision over a nice cold drink. A private room will be reserved at the Sundance Grill & Bar that will seat 40 so room and supplies will be limited. First come first serve.

Final Haven LARP Event #2 2016

Final Haven is a flourishing LARP which was developed, tested, and currently operates out of the Midwestern United States.

The Final Haven world is a post-apocalyptic medieval fantasy realm which blends the intrigue, ingenuity, and diverse backgrounds of its players to solve physical and mental challenges.

We believe that teamwork, combat, puzzle solving, and of course a sense of humor, blend to form an exciting and dynamic environment for players and GMs alike.

Character Creation is easy and the rules system has been simplified greatly from many other LARP experiences to help new players integrate quickly. Additionally, many of our players find that the rapid early advancement system in our game helps them become quickly involved in the long-term story arcs, and in the political aspects of the game.
