Starting tomorrow, this Tuesday, August 24th, we’ll be doing mini-Hackathons at Workshop 88 from 6:30pm through to later in the night. We’ve got Adam, Fredo, Rudy, Jim, and me dedicated to coming out and getting some work at the workshop done tomorrow, and maybe we’ll have time some other fun stuff, too!
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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: http://planca.st/6Ox
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: http://planca.st/68j
Hope to see you all there.
Workshop 88 General Meetings 6:30pm, biweekly on Mondays
