General Show Information / The Cypress Room and Sonoma Room
« Last post by Jeff Kinder on July 13, 2015, 01:56:40 pm »
Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to make sure everyone knows what's going on at the Cypress Room and the Sonoma Room this year and where they are located at. 

The Cypress Room is located at the top of the Lobby Escalators and we have all kinds of FUN going on up there for 2015!!  The room opens at 10AM on Saturday July 18th and will have plenty of Classic Console Games set up for your enjoyment.  At 1PM there will be a classic console tournament!  Be sure to get involved in that!

Later that night starting at 6PM, the Rockage Music Showcase takes over with live DJ's and bands playing music all night long!  (ok,... that's just a figure of speech.... not "all night long" but see the music schedule here)  On Sunday July 19th, the classic consoles will be back on and ready for your enjoyment at 10AM.

Downstairs in the Sonoma Room (located on the first floor behind the magnolia room) we will have a few air hockey tables set up for your enjoyment!!!!  And speaking of that, professional Air Hockey player Joe Cain will be giving a keynote on "Air Hockey Game Basics And A History Lesson From The Pros" on Saturday in the Magnolia Room (the time for this keynote will be posted shortly)

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
