We love video games as much as we love movies so we decided to throw a little spin on Name that Frame and call it, cleverly, Name that Game! We'll show a still from a video game and you get to tell us the answer. Good times are ensured as your friends viciously insult you for your poor memory and vice-versa.
We're into a wide variety of stuff here at Thirsty Nomad, and we decided it'd be fun to share the love of smooth, vintage tones of vinyl. We'll supply the player and the beer (for a small fee) and some seed tunes. Bring in whatever records you like, we'll queue em up and kick out the jams.
And why not grab a pizza pie while you're enjoying the grooves on the vinyl pies? (Sorry, couldn't resist)
To cap off our month of Harry Potter, thirsty Nomad Brewing will be hosting a Wizarding Duel Tournament. More or less. Since we assume none of us are actual wizards (otherwise don't you have better things to do?) we'll be faking it a little bit. Here's the plan:
Show up by 5pm to register yourself, pick a house (or be randomly assigned), and get assigned your wizard armor. Once brackets are assigned, you will face off against opponents with your stand in wand - a tiny squirt gun with colored water in it. You get a point for making the first hit. First one to three points wins the match. The person with the most wins takes the tournament.
House points will be awarded as well -
- First place: 150 points
- Second place: 100 points
- Third place: 50 points
- Fourth place: 25 points

This game is for all you film buffs. We thought you might be feeling left out with all this music bingo, so we came up with a game for movie folks. The rules are simple, look at a frame from a movie and name that movie. It's a fun way to relive old memories and chat about movies over beers with friends!
Ticket sales have ended for this event.
