    Queer Magic the Gathering Night

    Are you LGBTQ and a fan of Magic? Have you never picked up a card but your gay spirit yearns to build a deck? Do you reject the temptations of Yu-Gi-Oh! and its many big-haired idols? Then you may find yourself among friends at this weekly meetup of queer Magic: The Gathering players. Welcome are the dedicated, the lapsed, and the newbies these Thursday nights – even those sans cards can participate. Masks, however, are required, but they’ve got spares if you forget yours at home. – James Scott
    Thursdays, 7-10pm. Free but RSVP.
