Sure, scoring monster points on Call of Duty or Battlefield takes the skills of a boss. A gamer boss just like you. We know you're a shot-caller, a real top dawg. But what if there were a legit reason to put on some pants and go out and party with like-minded gamers? Green Room's Black Friday Arcade bash might just be the gathering appropriate for you.

Wearing these costumes as a Pac-Man and ghost duo will really spice up the night. Pretend to gobble down some pellets when your friends chat with you. And to live out a freakish fantasy, chase each other around the Green Room. Now this is the reason you left the house.
There's no socially awkward situation that can't be fixed by spitting out fireballs and telling your enemies and friends to "Eat it." With Halloween around the corner, you can save your best Bowser gear for later. But for this week, burn those less-than serious gamers with your knowledge on levels and stuff.
Black Friday's Arcade Night. 10 p.m. Friday, September 21, at Green Room, 109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale. This is a 21-and-older party with no cover charge. Call 954-727-0950, or visit greenroomlive.com.
