It only seemed natural that we would bring back the Ripped City event on April, 20th. Makes sense to us that we should celebrate this international holiday with some laughs and vintage video games. Doesn't it? We can guarantee you that the laughs will be bigger (or just as big, because there were some good ones) the bus will be back and we'll be jamming when Friday rolls around. If you're reading this thinking "I have no idea what these guys are talking about?" Then, you should definitely come visit us Friday night.
Or, check out this Oregon Live article for some backstory.
Here's what to remember and a little bit about how it's going down. We know that not everyone got to participate last time, so the NBA Jam tournament side of things will feature more teams. 8 in total this time around. And we are giving people that wanted to participate last time and didn't get the chance a bit of a head start. So, show up early and sign up if you want to play.
- Doors open at 6:00, show up and find Ananth right away to sign up.
- Wear your vintage jersey. Seriously, it will help your NBA Jam skills. It also adds to the ambiance. We'll be pumping in "locker room smell" to help heighten your senses.
- Be 21 if you're wanting to drink. There are adult beverages for adults. Also, we're getting some water this time too. Slake your thirst!
- Buy something. You know, so we can keep paying comic to do these shows. Good news for you is that everything in the store will be 20% off. Get it? Get it.
Also, we're going to be doing some fun tours from the shop. Two actually, and if you want to participate in one of these - a $75 value - let us know ASAP so that we can get you on the bus.
NW PDX 420 TOUR
The tour will leave from the Athletic and visit Chalice Farms and a McMinnamins (they created a beverage together) before dropping you off back at the shop. Must be 21 to participate in this side of things. And if you head over to the Athletic Instagram page you can find out how to participate.
It is going to be a fun and funny event, so drag yourself over this way.
