Come Play Marvel vs. Capcom 2 With Us This Friday

It'll be like that Age of Booty thing, only this time you're invited!


Come out and meet Zangief! Or, at least, play as or against him in a fighting game! 
[UPDATE] Hey, since the Evo fighting game tournament is this weekend, the Bay Area's supply of available fight sticks has dropped to somewhere near zero. If you're particular about how you play, you may want to bring your own Xbox 360-compatible joystick. Additionally, we'll have a Street Fighter IV set up, as well as Spyborgs! That's two unreleased games for the price of none! See you tonight! 
 
It is officially party time. Or, well, it will be tomorrow (edit: tonight!). Call it a little something we're doing to commemorate the upcoming one-year anniversary of Giant Bomb's launch. Or call it a slightly late celebration in honor of the ten-month anniversary of the time we got together with some dudes at Capcom and drank a lot while playing Age of Booty. But either way, we've got an unreleased game, we're bringing our cameras, and this time? You're invited.

We'll be playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which in case you don't remember, is coming to Xbox Live Arcade at the end of this month. Here are the details on where we'll be playing:

Mandala Lounge
38 E. 25th Ave
San Mateo, CA  94403
(here's a Google Maps link)

Date: Friday, July 17
Time: 5:30PM - ?????

We'll be bringing a few of our Giant Bomb T-shirts to serve as prizes in our not-quite-a-tournament. Oh, and there will be a couple of drink specials, too. Draft beers will be $3/$4, and if you order a "Giant Jager Bomb," you'll get it for $5. This is the part where I should tell you to drink responsibly, but as there's really nothing even remotely close to responsible about Jagermeister in any form, I feel a little silly doing so. So instead just remember that, as Mandala is a bar, you'll need to be at least 21 to get in.

So come out and join us! Be a part of the magic! Make your way into a video that will live on Giant Bomb for all of eternity! Meet Vinny Caravella! Have a drink (or possibly two drinks)! Partake in a drunk dial to Chicago's favorite son, John Vignocchi! Watch this video for more details!

I soooooo want to go. But there's a bit of a distance between Iceland and San Mateo so I won't probably make it.

Ohio is the last place I want to be right now...

Posted by CitizenKane

I wish I could be there, even though I don't play fighting games and would probably suck at this "tournament".

Posted by BreakThings

I loathe the people who live in Cali right now.

I envy you bloody West Coast Americans.

John Vignocchi is awesome.

@damnboyadvance: I feel your pain man. Michigan is the last place I want to be right now.

Also, not being 21 is kind of a problem for me...

Edited by Hitchenson

If I had the means of getting to the US in a day, I totally would.

Posted by skrutop

If you ever have a "Giant Bomb East," then I'll be there.

Posted by MattBodega

Maybe, I can attach balloons to Maryland, and float the STATE over to California! That would totally work!

Posted by TheWorstPlayerEver

You guys could always make a trip out to Colorado and do a "not-quite-a-tournament." Then I will be there

Edited by Osphere

Brad looked like he was having fun :3

Posted by Undeadpool

I have a friend who lives in San Mateo...she's the busiest person I know, but maybe...just maybe...

Probably not, though.

Anyone want to give me a ride from Nebraska?  Anyone?  There's a Giant Jager Bomb in it for ya, maybe some corn whiskey.

Oh well, maybe I'll have my own little Giant Bomb party (tear in my beer).
