OK so I work at Chuy's. Look 'em up if you don't know cause it's amazing TexMex food and there might be one around you.



I've been working there for about 5 months (read that as since the store here in Gainesville, FL opened) and have a meeple on my apron that I used puff fabric paint to put there. It's led to questions and talk about gaming so I asked my GM if we could setup a little game day for our employees to experience some games. Most were total newbies to the hobby so here's what I brought and what got played.

We had about a dozen people show up but everyone who worked today stopped by to look at the games and wish they weren't working so they could have joined us.

This was there and was shown off and explained but we were limited on time so didn't get it played.
