GameDevDrinkUp August 2014

Hi, 

Next week marks our August DrinkUp in 7 cities across the globe! Grab your fellow colleagues and industry friends and come out for a night of networking, great drinks and raffles. There are only so many days left of summer, so what better excuse to cool off with a refreshing brew among like-minded people. 

Our sponsors Twitch will be providing the first 50 in the door with a free drink ticket (only applies to LA, SF and Dallas). We are always on the lookout for donations for the monthly raffle (such as video games, download codes, books, t-shirts, figures), so if your company has anything to donate, please contact the local chapter representative for more info.

Hope to see you there!

GameDevDrinkUp April 2014

Hi Everyone,  

This month marks the 3-year anniversary of the GameDevDrinkUp!  What started as a small gathering in Los Angeles has grown to six cities across the world.  The goal was to connect the game development community by strengthening relationships and creating new ones.  It was also a good excuse to have a beer. We hope that goal has been met and everybody had a good time along the way!

A special thanks goes out the chapter leads who have been the support group for the organization; Warren PriceDrew Marlowe, Grant ShonkwilerJim GalisWes EhrlichmanDavid StaatsAdelle BuenoChris AinsworthManya Susoev, & Christopher Hays.  They make all the events happen flawlessly.  We would also like to thank Twitch for their long term sponsorship, great prizes, and ice cold beers.  There are also many others who help the chapter leads run the events and fill in when they are away.  Please buy them a beer at the DrinkUp to celebrate. 

Join us next Thursday, 4/10 as we kick-off another great DrinkUp with raffles, networking and 50 free drinks from Twitch (LA, SF and Dallas). 

We are always on the lookout for donations for the monthly raffle such as video games, books, t-shirts and download codes.  If your company has anything to donate, please contact the local chapter lead for more info.

Hope to see you there!
