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.”

Game of Thrones Drinking Game
It’s finally here! Game of Thrones returns to television tonight on HBO. No doubt there will be many viewing parties, like this one put together last year by Geeky Hostess, and what party is complete without games? The Savory has put together a drinking game for the season. From the looks of it, you won’t need to worry about any of your favorite characters dying because a few minutes in and you’ll probably be completely numb and on your way to forgetting the entire night.
Please drink responsibly.
Tropical Freeze (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze cocktail)
.75 oz 99 Bananas
.75 oz Malibu Rum with Coconut
.75 oz RumChata
4 oz Pineapple Juice
Within the first few minutes of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze being announced, I received multiple messages saying that the title sounded like the name of a cocktail. With themes of Donkey Kong, ice, and tropical fruit, this drink practically made itself! Check out how to create this easy cocktail in the video below on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel.
