RPG Night

Come have some fun and meet new people at our hosted RPG nights! Game nights will be held every other Thursday evening from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM starting September 9th. You can choose to be a DM, come with your own group, or join an existing group. We hope to bring like-minded individuals together in one place.

Feel free to bring food and drink (no alcohol), and make yourselves comfortable. First come, first serve. Tables will be limited, but if you have one yourself, feel free to bring it to make sure your group has a space.

We look forward to seeing you all!
