Annual Pre-GenCon Drunken Piss Up

Join us for the Burlesque Bingo Bango Show at Indy’s White Rabbit Cabaret. Play some sexified Bingo with the fabulous Muncie Brothers and the tantalizing Alabaster Betty. Expect comedy, dancing, and crazy prizes.

The White Rabbit Cabaret is in the heart of Indy’s newest entertainment district–Fountain Square. It’s definitely worth the short drive or cab ride form downtown to experience the restaurants and clubs, like, New Day MeaderyFountain Square Brewing Co., and Santorini Greek Kitchen.

The White Rabbit Cabaret is at 1116 Prospect Street. Doors open at 8 PM, show starts around 10 PM.

Capo’s Banquet

Saturday, August 17th @ 7:00 PM

Join us at Buca di Bepo in downtown Indy to celebrate our event Honor Amongst ThievesHonor is a tribute to gangster films and old school City of Greyhawk. You don’t need to be signed up for the event to share some dinner and talk about the good old days of Dungeons & Dragons.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, August 14th by emailing geeks@geeksoutafterdark.com. All participants pay their own way.

Buca di Bepo is at 31 N. Illinois Street


It has been reported by Derek Guder the GenCon Event Program Manager that thousands of events will be cut from the onsite program due to space constraints. The events most likely to be cut are the ones that are sold out. In related news, LaViz has reported there will be no GenCon app this year.

Remember, even though an event says it’s sold out, there is always a good chance of having no-shows. In my experience of over a decade of running RPGs at conventions, I can count on one hand the number of times all of the pre-registered players showed. If you want to get into our events or any others, please bring generic tickets and more than likely we can find a seat for you.

Luckily, some GenCon fans have created web based app – http://gencon.bloodbowldigital.com/. Bookmark that page to help you find events at GenCon.
