Win WEIRD AL Tickets at Player’s Choice Video Game Quiz Show – Sunday 3/29, 9pm

"Weird Al" YankovicThe legendary “Weird Al” Yankovic is coming to the Oregon Zoo this summer! Of course… the show is completely, utterly sold out! Luckily, you’ve got Ground Kontrol, and we’ve got a deal for you: Take first place at this month’s Player’s Choice Video Game Quiz Show and you’ll walk away with 2 tickets!

Player’s Choice Video Game Quiz Show challenges teams of up to 5 to flex their arcane arcade knowledge and curious console cognition, for bragging rights and of course, amazing prizes. Everything from the earliest battle of blocks to the latest eye-melting entertainment technology can be covered!

Hosts Scoot Herring, Nic Goans and Andy MacDonald have been playing video games and cracking jokes for a while, so they’ll keep you entertained as you search your memory banks (not your phones) for the name of that obscure Final Fantasy summon, or reach to grab the answer sheet before you forget how to start a 2-player game of Contra with 30 extra lives.

The show starts at 9pm, and we suggest you get here early to grab a seat – this should be one of the most competitive editions yet! Don’t forget that Ground Kontrol offers happy hour pricing ’til midnight on beer, wine, cider and well cocktails every Sunday night!

WHAT: Player’s Choice Video Game Quiz Show – WEIRD AL Giveaway! Win tickets to his Sunday 9/6 concert at the Oregon Zoo!

WHEN: Sunday, 3/29. Starts at 9pm.

COVER: No cover! 21+ only.

Widmer Brothers Replay IPA Launch Party – Wednesday 3/11

WB Replay IPA LaunchGround Kontrol is partnering with Widmer Brothers to launch their brand-new brew with a name that’s perfect for an arcade: Replay IPA!

Replay IPA is a session-style IPA that we’re sure will pair nicely with a round of pinball or a game of Ms. Pac-Man. In fact, Widmer will even buy you some game credits when you purchase a pint of Replay!

Doors open at 7pm, and the party runs late, but don’t hesitate – there won’t be any replays after this special event!
