In case any of you missed it over on the CHS Blog, the L|td Gallery is moving into the Raygun Lounge and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Skylar is thrilled

Not only does this partnership help us meet our zoning requirements but with Black Coffee leaving, the L|td and the Art Primo Gallery both moving into the neighborhood, and True Love staying awesome right where they are, the corner of Pine and Crawford is about to become the pop culture art walk epicenter of Seattle.

"So that's Pine and Crawford then, is it?"

The L|td are working hard to get our new space ready for their first show Gods & Monsters featuring work by Augie Pagan and Raygun alumn Aaron Jasinski next Saturday, October 18th at 7pm.

In the meantime, you can come by and see their progress anytime or meet them in person and check out some of their previous prints at our shared booth at GeekGirlCon this weekend.

See you soon,

So after a brief delay while our Washington State Liquor Control Board reviewer stared at the wrong folder for three weeks before finally just hitting send on our approval paperwork…

[Pro tip for all you government bureaucrats out there: If you do accidentally get the completely wrong file on someone despite their repeatedly pointing out that you're quoting the wrong information to them, don't, when you finally realize it, joke with them about it as if that was really funny and probably happens all the time. Also, "Rogue," whoever you are, you are NEVER getting your liquor license. Seriously. Just give up now.]

… we are GO!

The Raygun Lounge is now ALL AGES!

Say it with me now…
Wooooo

That’s right, you knuckleheads! You can draft this Saturday!

Don't wreck the scene though, seriously, or we will come down on you like a hammer.

Don’t wreck the scene, though. Seriously. Don’t. Or we will come down on you like a hammer.

And this means that the shop will be open in our new 501 E Pine Raygun Lounge digs NEXT TUESDAY, Aug 5th from 11am to 11pm. Come in and see what the first week of a new business looks like! Because we will be rebuilding. From scratch. In public. That’s some cutting edge entrepreneurial performance art right there. Don’t miss it!

And for those of you that have expressed an interest in actually helping out with the process, moving day is Monday. If you’d like to move some boxes with us as part of our DIY parade send me an email for details and I’ll try to get back to you by Sunday.

I’m excited. The team’s excited. We’re ready. And we hope you are too. Because the future starts Tuesday and we’re leading it. Come with us.

While we wait for the Washington State Liquor Board to approve our liquor license adjustment to allow the the Lounge to become all ages so we can move the shop into it we’re still going strong at both locations.

Which means it’s another great weekend filled with great special events!

It all starts off on Friday with our monthly Indie Dev Meetup, a night to see and show the city’s hottest in-development games when host Alex Schearer invites the brightest and best designers to, “Put down your keyboard [...] grab your laptop [...] and get feedback from other game makers.”

On Saturday, our indie game design weekend shifts from computer to tabletop when we host Seattle’s very first Unpub Event featuring completely brand new games from some of our region’s top designers. Our legendary weekly Magic drafting will still be in effect (M15, $15 buy in, prizes for top 3) but will be limited to 1 pod of 8 at noon and 4pm to make sure that we have room for this important event.

On Sunday, we shift back into our classic schedule with all of our regular weekly and bi-weekly events like Star Wars X-Wing with Rebel Leader Dylan Holmes and Elder Dragon Highlander with Legendary Commander Arcades Sabboth.

Y-Wing Attack

So again, come on down to the lounge for a beer, some pizza, and the best tabletop gaming experience in Capitol Hill.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
