PAX East 2014 Panel: Rise of the Gaming Bar
Many of our Gaming Bar friends are on a panel this weekend at PAX East! Check out what they have to say about the world wide rising geek bar scene. The panel is this Saturday (4/12/2014) from 6:30-7:30 in the Arachnid Theater room. See you there!
From the PAX Schedule site: “Geeks and drinking have gone hand-in-hand for decades. From lazy Sundays around a DnD table, late nights playing Counter-strike on the PC, or dorm room console benders back in college—the social activity of throwing back a few cold ones has long gone hand in hand with the social activity of gaming. Meet entrepreneurs from Australia, Japan, and the United States who have evolved geek inebriation into a business model. Explore the challenges they face; successes, failures—not only in business, but also through the impact they are having on local geek culture. Discover what ManaBar, 42 Lounge, Space Station, and Headshots are doing to replace the Sports Bar, with the Geek Bar.”
