It's Comic Con in St. Enoch Centre #Glasgow this weekend. I just got this in an email, sounds interesting:
"We've spared no expense and with the help of St Enoch, we have managed to bring the 1989 Batmobile to the centre which will be placed right outside Boots on the ground Floor." 🤓
We'll be there with some of the #geeksocial contigent from noon

I'm hosting a video lesson on how to play #poker this Wednesday (1st April) from 6pm here:
https://meet.jit.si/glasgow.social (no software necessary, just visit in your browser on Wednesday).
Join us, learn the basics, then afterwards we'll play a £5 home game (it'll cost £5.50, pokerstars gets 50p, the rest goes into the prize pot) on Pokerstars at 8pm (https://www.pokerstars.uk/) to test out what you've learned.
Create an account on pokerstars ahead of time if you want to play with us.
We're heading to #TheStand on Monday (9th March 2020) for Bright Club - "Where science and comedy collide" - always an interesting night! All welcome!
I'm hosting a 'paired poker' tournament game at mine on Sat March 21st if anybody is interested. 7:30 for 8pm start. Choose your own pairs.
What is paired poker? Play in pairs, one partner completes an orbit (~8 hands) then switches and the other plays an orbit with the same stack.
Why? It allows you learn more about each other's play styles. Plus, it's chaos and fun 😂
£10 buy in, unlimited rebuys for first 2 hours if knocked out.
Let me know if you're game!
