SchlitzKrieg

SchlitzKrieg 2014

Beer and a Big Yellow Bus

Time: 9AM-6PM
Location: Various locations (See Map)
Tix: $75/person
Info: PAX Forums

Washington state has almost 200 craft breweries, many with small-scale artisan brews that you’re not going to find anywhere else in the world. Seattle is truly Beer Geek Heaven. The SchlitzKrieg is a beer tour for locals and out-of-towners alike, and focused on tiny up and coming nano-breweries that you probably won’t find in the store. Throw in a little local history, an interesting scenic ride, and you’ve got a great way to spend a day outside of the Convention Center, where you can see more of the city than just the downtown.

Its time to smoke again. Before we go any further this will be at a Hookah Lounge. No outside substances; tobacco, illegal, or otherwise.

Cover Charge is $5.50, that gives you a year membership so free if you are already a member. You will also need ID to prove your +18. Hookah will run around $20 for a regular bowl more for Premium. Refills are cheaper and we can all pitch in, so if you can only afford the cover charge we can lessen the cost for you while we are there. (see website in spoiler for full menu) There is no minimum ratio for people to Hookah so come out and chill even if you don’t smoke. I can talk to the Lounge closer to the date about discounts once we get a better idea of numbers as well.

The 1st RockBand Afterparty

Time: 7:30PM-1AM
Location: The Unicorn, 1118 E Pike St, Seattle, WA
Tix: Free Admission
Info: Facebook

We have come to an agreement with the Unicorn to do The 1st Rock Band After Party!

We chose to go our own way simply because we didn’t want to be compared to the PPP. This is an entirely different event, by Rock Band fans, for Rock Band fans. granted, there will be Rock Band at the freeplay stage at PAX, we are THE premier Rock Band hosts in the entire state, if not west coast (not counting Ümloud).

The Unicorn will have their regular menu, and special drinks just for this event. cosplay/costumes are encouraged and possibly rewarded! (most likely extra raffle tickets) The last 2 years that we did the Rock Band portion of the PPP it was amazing, and people rocked hard. but this year, we have practically DOUBLED the time of the event, promising the most epic Rock Band party ever of our 7 year history!

Even if you don’t like Rock Band, or think you can’t sing or play it, or in fact never have played at all, it will be a fun time as long as you show up, and jump in with both feet. Hell, it could just be the regular Rock Band crew we entertain every week and it would still be great, but let’s make a little history and benefit the kids while starting a new tradition!
