Nerds' arcade wet dreams will abound this Friday night as Green Room nightclub hosts its videogame and cosplay party. The downtown haunt will roll out its big screen for the Marvel-versus-Capcom 3 video-game tournaments hosted by Play N Trade, to take place throughout the night. In the background, go-go dancing cosplayers will surely take things up a notch, pushing on the gamers' joystick buttons. Revelers are invited to show up starting at 10 p.m. clad in gear inspired by favorite videogame stars like 16-bit scenester Mario, Capcom dragons, or that buff dude in Skyrim. Cosplay gear is a fun option too. Best dressed and top-ranking tournament players will score prizes. Attendees who prefer to play without any competition can play classic Nintendo games at one of the gaming stations in the club. In keeping with the competitive spirit, resident DJs Lindersmash and Kaos will go head-to-head in a battle on deck, throwing out electronic tracks mixed with arcade-inspired sounds.
Slip on an ape suit, Kong fans, and see what cosplayer hottie wants to fondle your console. Two-for-one drinks will be served before midnight. This is a 21-and-older party with no cover charge. Green Room is located at 109 SW Second Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-727-0950, or visit greenroomlive.com.
