This Friday and Saturday, we’re thrilled to be live streaming the DotA2 finals on both of our big screens. Doors open at noon both days and we’ll be live streaming until the events are over, however long that takes. We’ll also be running our DotA Hour “Tall Boy plus a Snack for only Five Buckaroos” Special throughout both events, so come see what all the excitement is about (I mean aside from that over twenty million dollar prize pool. What what?)!
