We have one side of the restaurant reserved, it will be through the glass door on your right as soon as you enter the restaurant. It will be hard to miss the room full of guys wearing Team Liquid shirts watching SC2 !
2 PM – 6 PM on Sunday, Oct 16th.
Anyone who wants to come! Don’t feel nervous if you don’t know many people from the forums or CSL club, a lot of us are just getting to know each other and more the merrier! Even if you don’t play Starcraft and are just somewhat interested to see what it is all about come on out and introduce yourself over a beer! I personally know of people who are coming that don’t play the game or just started playing the game, watching Starcraft is highly entertaining and doing so over some drinks even more so! This venue is open to all ages! which is one of the main reasons we chose it, so if you are not 19 don’t worry! You can come eat, and drink soda or milk or whatever it is kids are enjoying these days! This is our first event and we want it to be a hit so PLEASE come out and bring as many people with you as possible!
What is BARCRAFT?
Barcraft is the slang term coined by the StarCraft community for getting together at a bar or pub and watching a Starcraft event over some drinks! If you haven’t looked into it much or feel somewhat nervous about doing something like this, don’t! Barcraft is blowing up all over the world right now and has even gotten front page attention from major news publications such as the Wall Street Journal http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111904070604576516462736084234.html , Edmonton Journal, Toronto Star, and Forbes among many others.
http://brewsters.ca/ Brewsters is a great restaurant with a nice atmosphere and an extensive selection of on tap beers, including a wide variety of their own micro brews. The matches will be shown on a large number of big screen LCD televisions! Once again this venue is open to all ages!!
Information about MLG Orlando!
MLG is short for Major League Gaming and is best described as a professional video game tour. It functions similar to a pro golf tour in that there are 6 events organized throughout the year (or season) where players from all over the world compete for money as well as (maybe more importantly) points that will qualify them for the tour championship at the end of the season for a much larger cash prize. Games featured on the MLG currently are Halo, Call of Duty:Black Ops,and most importantly for us: StarCraft 2. MLG Orlando is the 5th event of the year making it the final one before the championship being held in Providence, Rhode Island in November. Notable Starcraft 2 players attenting MLG Orlando include: Boxer, Idra, Huk, InControl, and MarineKingPrime.
Hope to see you all there!!
