Hometown Throwdown featuring EyeQ, June 23rd!

We are back at Kick Butt Coffee & Booze for our next Hometown Throwdown, on June 23rd at 8pm! No tournament this time, but we have a spectacular music lineup, including a visit from EyeQ all the way in from Orlando. And of course, there will be games all night – including The Multibowl, which I remind you is a game that you cannot play at home!

Pictures and Video From Our Latest Throwdown

Thanks to everyone for coming out for our most recent Hometown Throwdown—it was our biggest and best event to date!

Congratulations to Chris Taylor who took first place in our Tetris Attack tournament, as well as David Boyd and Lauren Liebowitz for fighting the good fight and coming in second and third. Huge thanks also to The Returners, for a spectacular performance (including the live debut of their new version of the Dire Dire Docks theme from Mario 64).

Thanks also to everyone who only came so they could try out Mario Kart without having to buy a Wii U. We know you’re out there. We understand.

And of course, thank you to Kick Butt Coffee, Music & Booze, our gracious hosts, for giving us all a place to drink and a place to play.

Keep your eyes peeled on this space for the latest updates, news, and Pixels events. We’ll see you again by August!

 

P. S.: The Returners, in all their glory:


Hometown Throwdown on 3-8!

Hometown is coming up this Saturday, and we’ve got more fighting games than ever!

It all goes down from 2 to 6pm on Saturday, March 3, at Kick Butt Coffee & Booze on Airport Blvd.

 

Bring your arcade stick, your liver, and your game face. We’ll see you there!
