Mogtoberfest 2013 Has Begun!
Today The Drunken Moogle turns 4 years old! I feel like a broken record writing this all the time, but it’s been an amazing experience building the site from a little personal blog listing drinks that I would one day like to try to what it is today. I’ve been able to meet tons of people, online and off, and it’s all because of you all. It makes me extremely happy to see the geeky beverage community grow over the past few years. Geeky bars are popping up at an amazing rate all over the world, fans and game companies are creating more and more products that I would be happy to include in my own home bar, and so many people are combining their passions and making themed cocktails that they can share with friends and fandoms. This week long event isn’t just a celebration for TDM, but for everyone.
A little preview of of what you expect during the next week.
- Daily giveaways
- Incredible cocktails by TDM and some of the internet’s most creative geeky mixologists
- Geeky Drink art by some incredibly talented artists
- Fabulous custom glassware and a week long sale from multiple artists
- A livestream hangout with The Drunken Moogle and friends
- Lots of content EVERY DAY!
Thanks to Daniel Yuto Melcher for creating the image for this week’s banner (seen above).

FANGAMER X ATTRACT MODE
The Z-Saber will be the second of three cocktails by The Drunken Moogle served at the Fangamer X Attract Mode event this weekend. Over 30 artists’ (such as Drew Wise whose Megaman art is pictured above) work will be on display. Danimal Cannon and Jake “Virt” Kauffman will provide music, and Jesse Cox will MC. Upcoming games GALAK-Z by 17-Bit and Synchroma by CAPY will be playable.
Though the event takes place during PAX week, it is not an official PAX event and doesn’t require a badge to get in. More info and reservations at the link below.

*To make the strawberry red pepper puree, blend 1/4 cup red bell pepper, 1/4 strawberries, and 1/4 cup simple syrup (or two tbsp each of sugar and water). If you want it to be really, er, surprising, you can toss in a couple pieces of jalapeno as well.

Shiva (Final Fantasy cocktail) from Artnia
Another of Artnia’s themed cocktails, the Shiva contains white rum, white curacao, lychee, and lemon juice. The cafe’s online menu suggests that the alcohol content is indeed strong. Artnia is an official Square Enix cafe offering not only themed drinks, but even pancakes seared with the image of moogles and chocobos!
