We keep getting asked the same questions...
"When is Salty Sunday coming back?"
"When can I host a party here?"
"WHEN IS FIGHT CLUB RISING FROM THE GRAVE?"
It's all coming in due time. We're just on our last HP and still running. The opening of the arcade didn't go exactly as planned and it put us way behind schedule, so we lost a lot of sleep playing catch up.
We DO have an event room that we are renovating... However, all the arcade machines that did not make the final cut are currently stored in that room. We made some big sacrifices and sold them all as one big lot to a large arcade group. We are just waiting for these folks to come collect their goods so we can clear the room out completely and begin painting and cleaning it out.
This room was originally a storage room and it really looks like it. As much as the FGC is used to being stuffed in a closet or basement to play, we feel they deserve better and want to make this space just as welcoming and fun as the arcade.
I don't have an exact date when this is going to be done. I don't know when people are going to be done collecting their goodies. I don't know when our contractor will be ready to start painting (he's currently on Spring Break in Florida!) and how long it will take to finish. I don't know how long it will take our graffiti artist to accomplish what we have in mind.
All I can say is I promise we're working on it and it will happen...soon? Once it's done, we'll have a really cool space for weekly tournaments and private events. The room is just a little over 1,000 sq ft so it's not nearly the insane amount of space we had at Washington Square, but it's going to look like a really cool backstage arcade hangout rather than a clothes shop with some tables.
So please, just have some mercy on us!
