Local News - Poker, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Auction, Wrestling, and Drag Show news!
I have several cool topics for you today, beginning with an offer to all comics
creators in our audience who would like free table space in which to exhibit your
creations either during this year's Free Comic Book Day (May 4th), or during the
Denver Pop Culture Con (May 31- June 2nd). We have recently greatly expanded our events
area, so we have plenty of room for dozens of tables. Will Moulton (email@example.com) is handling
preregistrations as of right now...
Expanded Events Area
Our expanded events area will probably be filled to capacity this Saturday, March 9th,
as we will be hosting our first-ever
Yu-GI-Oh! Regional Tournament at our
Jason St. location.
Participation is strictly limited to only 200 players, so if you would like to enter, visit
David at our
ASAP. We do expect to be at capacity.
Yu-GI-Oh! Regional Tournament
Speaking of our
it will close forever on March 31st. I am not at all happy that we have to leave after almost
30 years in that shopping center, but the new owners raised our rent to over $10,000
per month, which is simply more than we can afford. The good news for those of you who have
supported Lakewood for so many years is that your store manager, David Saindon, will be
taking over running the front counter at
and most of the Lakewood N.I.C.E. members are transferring their accounts. In effect, the core
clientele of Lakewood will now become the new heart and soul of Jason St. This is all a bit
jarring (especially coming so close on the heels of our closing Colorado Blvd.), but believe
me when I say that this is all for the best. Jason St. is already the best retail store that
we have ever created, and this influx of new energy will definitely make it even better.
New Era Flyer
Continuing with events news, on the evening of March 16th we will be blessed with the return of
New Era wrestling!
Our newly expanded events area should allow expansion up to 400 seats, and also allow for our
stage to be incorporated into their wrestling ring. They will also have a nice new dressing
room available. If you've never attended any of their events, bring the kids for an awesome
night filled with amazing athleticism, and true craziness!
On March 23rd, it's time for our monthly poker tournament and huge no-minimum-bid comics and
toys auction. I am going to take a break from traveling for
the Imperial Court
all of this month, in order to focus entirely on preparing an immense selection for the auction.
Save the date, as there will be some incredible deals...
Performers in March's Show
Finally, on Sunday evening April 7th Jessica L'Whor and her amazing cast will be back on our
stage with her 2nd All Ages Family Drag Show. We had over 80 parents and kids at our first
show (despite cold and snow), and expect to double that number in April. Please join us that
evening and show your support for our local under-21 drag performers. Everyone who attended
this month's show had a truly fabulous time!
