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.

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!

1 part Amaretto
1 part Fuze Banana Colada
Directions: Pour equal measures of each ingredient in shaker over ice. Shake well and strain into shot glass. Serve and enjoy. You’ll be doing cartwheels in no time!
This week’s drink pays homage to Diddy Kong. Donkey Kong’s stalwart companion with no discernible relation to him. From the Super Nintendo to the Wii, the Kongs have been with us for a long time; Bringing us Fun and frustration. So make this shot, throw it back, and enjoy the sweet sweet taste of the fruit from the Kong’s private stash.
