GR8bit Live IV! Review

GR8bit Live is an annual Video Game Music (VGM) concert which serves as a fundraiser to purchase board game and video game equipment for the local children’s hospital.

This time around, it was a 2 day concert event with activities attached.

DRINK AND DRAW May 2016

Hosted by Party Table

Calling all artists, beer drinkers, and beer-drinking local artists (21+)! Have you ever wanted to spend another evening meeting local creatives, exchanging ideas, and swapping techniques over a cold pint?

Lucky for you, you’ll get the chance again!

Come unwind and refresh your mental palette at another Party Table Drink and Draw. Join us at the Pyramid Scheme for an evening of sketching, drinking, or just drinking until your sketches look good. 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 limitied, but artists with more discerning tastes are encouraged to bring their own fancy pencil boxes for personal use!

This event is a chance for local creatives to gather together and exchange words and vision over a nice cold drink. The Pyramid Scheme’s venue will be set up with several rows of folding tables and chairs to accommodate a large crowd.
