Wednesday Night Modern

Friday Night Magic? Neeeeever heard of it. But this is Capitol Hill’s longest running weekly Modern Constructed event ever. Heck, this one goes all the way back to the Capitol Club. And if you can remember that place, congratulations, you can actually call yourself a local now. $12.50 buy in. 3 round swiss tournament. Sweet prizes for 2-1 and 3-0. Unsanctioned (so our friends from Wizards can come and play if they want to- and heads up, they do) but still no proxies- come on now, we’re casual, but not that casual. Dress up when you go out. This is Capitol Hill on a Wednesday night, damnit.

Quicksilver Ball Pinball & Bicycle Biathlon

Yes. That’s right. We here at the Raygun Lounge take our Olympic sports very seriously. Which is why we’re proud to be an official stop on the Third Annual Quicksilver Ball Pinball & Bicycle Biathlon. Yes, it is too a real thing, alright! With all the real sports stuff that you would expect from a real olympic event. Liiike… greek words! And balls! Silver balls, even. Isn’t there a Christmas song about that? “Silver Balls… silver balls… soon it will be…” Sorry, I digress. Bikes and balls. We’ve got ’em. You can too. Come grab our silver balls, Christmas style.BMX pin

Every third Tuesday, those mad geniuses, the Seattle Indies, take over our space from top to bottom to eat, drink, talk, discuss & playtest their (and your!) latest works.
