Are your social skills gathering more dust than your long-neglected bins of 16-bit cartridges? Do not blow off your chance to forge new connections (and reform old ones) at the “Super Plurtendo” theme party, hosted by Azure Underground. No worries of regional lockout here – the PLUR (“Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect”) quality seal means the event is North American, Japanese, and PAL-compatible. No adaptors required, just an open mind – or a couple beers (BYOB storage will be provided; content not rated by the ESRB – or PLCB).

More intrepid adventurers can show off their Mode-7 dance floor scaling capabilities to four hours of continuously-mixed house and electro music, courtesy of Soundwave and The Paladin.

Still doesn’t light your fire flower? Perhaps a little cosplay will spark your interest. A Super Nintendo-themed costume contest will be held, granted there are enough willing participants (you know you’ve got that Hyliaciously caliente green tunic hanging in your closet, now you just need the Courage to wear it. Not to Triforce your hand or anything …).

Gamers of a certain age have rescued princesses, ancient relics, star systems, hopes and dreams, and even potassium-rich banana hordes from the clutches of evil. Rescue yourself from the winter doldrums and peel back the years at PACA before it’s too late (facilities max out at 200 lives). — Matt Swanseger
