Red Hot Robot Re-Opening [Phoenix]

Arizona Browncoats Shindig [Mesa]

  • Worshiping The Joss has all but become a standard card-carrying Geek activity these days.
  • The Arizona Browncoats know this, and together they celebrate the glorious creations wrought by our favorite master of SciFi television.
  • Usually held at Bookman’s Phoenix, this month’s “shindig” will be held at The Gamers’ Inn in Mesa, at 7pm.
  • Come out, meet other fans, and discuss your favorite Buffy episode.
