May is upon us. And with it comes 4 new great special events for you and your friends to participate in.

FRI MAY 09 Learn to play Magic with Queer Geek Seattle

That’s right. Seattle Met‘s favorite Queer Ladies Night has invited Ben Hayes and a few of his co-workers from Wizards of the Coast to come in and teach you how to play magic in an inclusive environment for LGBT-friendly female-identified individuals and their friends of all genders.

Entrance is free, supplies are provided, and the crowd is awesome so come on out and try something new!

FRI MAY 16 Save Clara! Doctor Who Costume Party and Fundraiser

Our resident Dalek, Clara, has taken some wear and tear during her year of convention appearances and lounge guest photo ops and, with her creator living on an income so fixed it’d make your head spin, it’s up to us to save her! So we’re holding a night of special Clara themed viewing and gaming, hosting a Whovian costume contest (Come in as a Doctor, companion or villain and have a drink on us! Best costume per category wins prizes!) raffling off an array of door prizes and donating $1 from the sale of every item sold to funding much needed repairs, improvements and upgrades for our beloved cybernetic organism.

Costumes are optional, a love of having fun supporting local creative pop culture is required.

Dalek Clara supports all loves.

FRI MAY 30 Rice Sniffing Gangster Party with Amanda Chan

Raygun Netrunner Team Captain Amanda’s mother got her a new rice cooker and to celebrate we’re throwing down a double feature of the finest rice-fetishizing-Japanese-gangster movies the world has ever known; Branded to Kill and it’s gender-swapped remake by the same director, Seijun Suzuki, Pistol Opera. Amanda will be on hand to serve sticky rice balls from the cooker that kicked it all off and maybe hand out some of the custom t-shirts and underwear we’re talking about commissioning for the event.

Mmmmmm… rice.

All of these events and more can be found on our lounge event page and that great new calendar that Skylar just put up behind the bar.
