Being Social: the Weekend of 10.07.11

5 Oct

Happy Columbus Day!  It’s such a ninja holiday that everyone forgets about, but is a great excuse to take time off work.  I, personally, will be attending the IGN Pro Leagues video gaming tournament in Atlantic City this weekend!  StarCraft 2, Battlefield 3, Bloodline and League of Legends will be played, with many being shown to a live audience on the big screen! Commentators are being flown in for the games, and the entire tournament will be streamed online to your home and to various BarCrafts –  bars that will show the games to their patrons.  If you’re interested, the Sunday finals might be shown here in DC.  Keep an eye on the DC Barcraft Reddit.  Also, I plan to tweet my progress, so follow me @iSaunter.

If you’re in town for the long weekend, don’t forget that the RennFest is still going, and it’s Oktoberfest!  Also, for this weekend only, the Taste of DC and an Occupy D.C. protest will be taking place within a block of each other. Both are free to get in, but Taste’s food tickets start at $15. (via DCist)

Friday & Saturdays in October
8pm
Care for a Ghost Story Tour of Washington?  I crashed one last year, and my friend swore that the Ghost of Lincoln followed her home.  It has some good tales – please ask questions of the tour guides. They may be old and ornery, but they’re full of awesome trivia.

Saturday
2-3pm
Dude.  Arlington Rocks.  At the Arlington central library, there will be a STAR WARS Cosplay Panel, hosting professional fully-costumed members of the local
Rebel Legion and 501st Legion.  For more information, call 703-228-5946. (via ArlNow)
 
630pm
Nerd Nite returns, this time at DC9.  These usually entail geeky lectures and discussion, though I have yet to attend one not for lack of wanting! If you go, let me know how it was!
 
Sunday
I got nothing. Go to Barcraft, man!
