Game Night, This Thursday.

This and every Thursday is Game Night at Workshop88.

Last week we welcomed three awesome TVs, we got to lounge and enjoy some fight games on a massive 36 in TV. And we got to witness the first Munchkin draw on record.

Stop by and show us your games. The event is open to the public, but that might change soon.

6:30 at Workshop88 HQ in Downtown Glen Ellyn.

Game Night this and every Thursday.

Last week D&D dominated the space with the medialab being used for the recording of the Film Yarn Podcast. And our awesome comfy leather couches were used for a vicious game of Munchkin.

This week will see the generous donation from College of DuPage of three big TVs to incorporate to the vintage video game corner (which will see a replay of the  PlayStation classic Simpsons Wrestling) and perhaps to see a movie or TV show.

Come visit us and bring your games! this event is open to the public.

Veggie Fest this weekend.

Nothing screams summer like a good ol’ neighborhood festival, and nothing says “end of Summer” to me more than Naperville’s annual Veggie Fest.

Hosted at the Science of Spirituality Temple in Naperville Road, the organizers claim is the biggest free vegetarian food festival in the United States. They offer cooking workshops, live music, and vendors from all over the country.

You should definitely give it a look, I’ll be going both days, so if you want to hang out there or afterwards, email me at

Veggie Fest: August 7 & 8 11AM – 8 and 7 PM

Game Night. TONIGHT.

Despite my overwhelming urge to convince everyone at The Workshop that having a Starcraft II LAN Party would be an awesome idea, we’ll be playing D&D, Puerto Rico, Settlers, Munchkin, original XBOX, or any other number of assorted games this Thursday night starting at 6:30pm. As usual. Thursdays. 6:30pm. And, seriously guys: Don’t. Think. Small. Starcraft II LAN Party is in the near-future.

Maybe as a members only event?

This week my D&D character, “The Amazing Bob”, will be making his return after a… shall we say… short sabbatical. The Amazing Bob’s bow is ready to drink blood from his foes freshly cut wounds once again. Also, The Amazing Bob is ready to drink ale… once again.

SEGUE! I brewed a ton of beer last night (really, only a few hours ago) in partial preparation for the Workshop 88 Brewfest. Proof:

YES. I was brewing AND bottling all in the same day. Two different beers.

Can you taste it?

See you tonight, Thursday night. 6:30pm.  Or-a-da Plancast, if you prefer it dished out that way:

General Meeting – August 9, 2010

After a lot of wall scraping on Saturday (wherein Andrew and I tackled the spackle issue with great intellectual vigor), we’re finally moving onto the priming and painting portion of the project. Thanks to everyone who came out and put their time in!

Anyway, this post is about our General Meeting next Monday, which we are having, as usual. Here’s the Plancast plan:

Hope to see you all there.

Workshop 88 General Meetings
