YUP 2015-12-11

 Next Friday, December 18th: Holiday Party at The Playhouse!


Ditch the ugly sweaters and join the Young Urban Preservationists and the Rochester Improvement Society for our High Score Holiday Party. You’ll get an early look at one of the Wedge’s newest attractions as well as have a chance get your game on a variety of vintage arcade games. Food and drink will be available for purchase from The Playhouse / Swillburger but we’ll provide friendly competition and witty jokes for free.

The Playhouse will be opening special for us so it’s important that we have an accurate headcount. >>Please RSVP to the Facebook event. 

Friday, December 18th | 7:00 PM | The Playhouse, 820 Clinton Ave S.

>>Please RSVP to the Facebook event. 

Special thanks to Bill Klingensmith at MYDARNDEST for the graphics!
