Our monthly Killer Queen Arcade League Night has evolved! We're now hosting casual "mixer" tournaments that are a great opportunity for new players to learn the game and seasoned veterans to mix it up with new teams Teams of five will compete in best-of-five matches. With five teams or fewer, the tournament will be run Round Robin style. With six or more, it will be Double Elimination. Registration is from 7pm to 8pm SHARP. The tournament organizer, Dylan, will not take any names after 8pm. Once the list is full, we'll start assembling teams at 8. We will allow ~15 minutes for everyone to get situated and organized before the first game will start. This tournament is designed for people to make new friends in the KQ community! Competition is certainly encouraged, but this is a bit more of a social event. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged! Best of all, playing is completely free. Don't forget, Ground Kontrol serves draft beer, draft cider, PBR, Tecate, Coors Light and well cocktails at happy hour prices from 5pm-midnight every Sunday! Be sure to join Killer Queen Mercury Squad Portland to keep up with fellow players, special events and bee puns!

Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK. Our quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. You can get a feel for the questions we ask by playing a sample round here. Each quiz has two audio rounds: a "Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV. Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you're some kind of savant. If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team. Winning teams gets street cred, bar credit and other prizes! Bonus Questions for more prizes are sprinkled throughout the quiz. You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin' Jeopardy! http://www.geekswhodrink.com/

7PM: Fiasco w/ DJ Brokenwindow: hardware meets records Since 2005, David Chandler has curated one of Portland's longest-running monthlies - FIASCO. As Solenoid, he improvises using keyboards, drum pads, sequencers & drum machines to create live electronic music. As DJ Brokenwindow, he spins a wide variety of emusics. Sometimes he's both, making live remixes by beatmatching between sequencers & rekkids. DJ Brokenwindow Community Library Records 10PM: Variety Pac w/ Strategy Paul Dickow, aka Strategy aka DJ P. Disco, eats records for dinner. Constantly chased by ghosts, his only escape is to consume as many records as he can as he pacs his way through the maze of life. A steady diet of records requires variety, so music from every genre is represented and impeccably mixed..With an emphasis on fun obscurities, musical trivia, songs interconnected by crossed fates and unlikely coincidences, and challenging experimentalism. Featuring lost DJ arts such as beatmatching! myspace.com/strategymusic community-library.net/artist_strategy.html Audio Dregs Records audiodregs.com Community Library Records community-library.net Kranky Records kranky.net no cover, 21+
