On the List | PAX Prime wizard pub crawl, Press Start art, East Precinct picnic, Seattle Asian Art Museum tours

PAX Prime, the emperor of gaming conventions, is at the Convention Center this weekend. PAX-ers typically bring their party uphill, so if you see costumes on the streets, that’s why. First up: Thursday evening’s 7th Annual Triwizard Drinking Competition at Linda’s, Barca, Auto Battery, Unicorn, and Grim’s. Tickets to participate are sold out so you can’t join in, but at least you are now forewarned.  More PAX-related off-site parties and events here. All are open to the public, no PAX pass needed.

Press Start III: Turbo Edition is the third annual game-themed art show opening Friday night at Ltd Gallery. The artist roster includes video game artists and – new this year – artists who are game fans. The opening party is all ages and has a DJ, free Jones soda, and adult beverages with ID.

Balconies closes it’s run at Annex Theatre on Saturday, and Other Desert Cities continues at Eclectic Theater.

  1. A year ago I happened to be sitting outside Rumba during what was (unbeknownst to me) PAX weekend. The parade of eccentric costumes wandering up the hill was highly entertaining (albeit –initially– befuddling), particularly later in the evening as it blended into lower Pike’s usual weekend tide of drag queens.
