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?)!

I’m thrilled to announce that as of 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, The Raygun Lounge has an official Washington state license to sell beer, wine, ale, cider and mead. Yes, mead. This means that tonight’s (Friday, 11/30) invite-only event (a Kickstarter reward for everyone who backed us at the “Soft Opening” level) will indeed feature the very first time we’ll be serving beer. First shipments are arriving tomorrow afternoon in time to be chilled before our guests’ arrival.

The flipside of this stellar news is that as of 5 p.m. tonight – just mere hours from now – The Raygun Lounge becomes an exclusive 21+ establishment. We’re in talks with our new neighbors, the Black Coffee Co-op, to provide alternative gaming event options for our fans and friends under the age of 21. We’ll release more details on that exciting collaboration once we sleep off tomorrow’s inevitable hangover.
