Half Rez Is Here

October 8, 2013 - By 


Half Rez is today! (Update: It’s over and it was a wonderful turn out. Thanks to everyone who came out and sorry for the few of you we had to turn away. We were at capacity)

Here is some more info for the event for those of you coming. Hope to see you there. Thanks again to our gracious sponsors (full list below) that helped us make sure this Half Rez was full of free food and great prizes. Get ready to have fun and maybe learn a thing or two.

Half Rez is all ages! The event starts at 6pm, and we recommend showing up on time. We have almost 300 people signed up, so be sure to get there early tomorrow to be sure to get in. We have lots of room, but it’s first come first served.


Haymarket brews excellent beer in-house and sources other local breweries… We are so stoked to be here this year! Food will be served for free throughout the evening (thanks to Maxon USA), and there will be a cash bar. As a courtesy to the bartenders, please bring cash if you can. It’ll help everyone get drinks quicker.

Let’s be honest, most of us work behind computers all day. Come join us at Half Rez to get away from the black rectangle for a while and hang with and learn from other professionals and beginners just like yourself.
