GameDevDrinkUp April 2015 - 4 Year Anniversary

Hi All-

This month marks our 4-year anniversary for the GameDevDrinkUp!  We have seen the community organically grow across the world from Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo.  Please give a special thanks this month to all the chapter leads who have helped bring the DrinkUp to your city.  Without their hard work, our fun night of getting together, growing our community, and having a drink would have never happened.  

We would also like to thank Twitch and our other sponsors over the years who have helped to quench our mighty thirst.  :)  Twitch will be supporting us this month as well, providing prizes and free drinks for LA, SF, and Dallas.  

What started out as a simple idea of getting friends and colleagues together has proven to be extremely valuable for our community.  Our mantra continues today, welcoming developers from AAA to Indie in a non-recruitment environment. 

Stay tuned as we have larger plans in store for what we want to bring to our great community!  

As always, we hope to see you there!

GameDevDrinkUp March 2015

Hi All-

Hope everybody had a great GDC! If you weren’t able to make it, the DrinkUp will be a great way to catch up.  So, please join us this Thursday 3/12, to a hang out with old friends, meet new friends, and have a drink.

As always, we'll have raffles going on where you can win some cool swag items. Also, if you're in LA, SF or Dallas, get there on time for a complimentary drink ticket (first 50 in the door) from Twitch.  We are always on the lookout for donations for the monthly raffle (such as games, books, t-shirts, figures), so if your company has anything to donate, please contact your local chapter organizer.

Hope to see you there!

GameDevDrinkUp December 2014


'Twas the 11th of December and all through the bar,
Game devs were coming from near and afar.
The liquor was flowing and new friends being made,
It was the last DrinkUp before 2014 fades.

Join us this Thursday for holiday cheer,
Fun raffles, great people, and of course lots of beer.  
The first 50 people get a free drank,
Courtesy of Twitch who we'd like to thank.

Hope to see you there!
