Since I'm the wannabe Spanky (gamesnight), I might as well
steal plagerize his old postings to advertise the meetup.com group.

August Meetup #1 - East Side - Arabica
Our venue on the East Side, the Arabica Coffeehouse at University Circle, offers a (mostly) quiet, smoke-free environment that is open until 10PM - that's four hours of possible gaming! *Smoking areas are available in the upstairs rooms.*

Arabica at Univ Cir

This is an event that is in the "neighborhood" of the local on-line retailer, Hobbies and Games. You can order games from the owner, Ron Charity, and pick up your games on the way to the Arabica event. That way, you can show off your brand new games and we'll help you play 'um. You also pay 'on-line' prices for the games and save on the shipping costs. To order from Ron, call him at 216-381-5009 after 6 pm weekdays and anytime on the weekends. You can see what is available and in stock on the website. Using the link below gives our meetup group some bonus points.

Our venue, The Warzone Matrix game store, is on the West Side and offers a gamer-friendly, smoke-free environment that is open until midnight - that's five hours of possible gaming!

August Meetup Bonus - West Side - Gamer's Haven
This is a BONUS meetup at the Gamers Haven and there are two things that make this meetup special; it will be on a Friday evening and there will be no event fee, voluntary or otherwise.
Friday, August 11, 2006, 5:00 PM until 11 PM
13403 Smith Rd
Cleveland , OH 44130
RSVP at: http://boardgames.meetup.com/38/events/5040982/
August Meetup #3 - West Side - I'm Game
The selection of games that this store has on the shelves is constantly growing with new offerings every week. The ‘kid friendly’ store and the earlier starting time, 5:00 p.m., makes this an event that is good for a family outing so, bring the whole gang with you.
It is always good to have more game shops that are willing to allow open gaming in town. This shop is in the Great Northern mall and that limits the flexibility the owners have in setting the hours we are allowed to game; that's the reason for the earlier starting time. The mall closes at 9 p.m. but we will be able to game until nearly 10 p.m. Stop by and play a game; you'll have fun.
Thursday, August 17, 2006, 5:00 PM until 9 PM
156 Great Northern Mall
North Olmsted , Oh 44070
RSVP at: http://boardgames.meetup.com/38/events/5040975/

August Meetup #4 - West Side - Gamers Haven
We'll be meeting on the West Side at the Gamers Haven game store. It offers a gamer-friendly, smoke-free environment that is open until midnight - that's five hours of possible gaming!
This event has become quite popular and often draws twenty or more players. With so many people and the wide range of games being played, this is very welcoming event for newer members. Come and play fun games with fun people!
