Come to my Halloween Party, too!
And tonight at 7:00 PM SLT, I (meaning Kate, of course, not Soph) will be hosting our Second Annual Halloween Party, with games, dancing, witty conversation, and other kinds of fun nonsense, at the Diversionarium. 🙂 I hope to see a lot of friends I don’t often get to catch up with. Come join us!
The Diversionarium is a non-commercial spot for social games, creative play, and miscellaneous horsing around. It’s located in beautiful Pandora’s Peace Park, with a mer-friendly lagoon, and includes some well-known games, like chess and Othello, as well as exclusive games you won’t find anywhere else: word games, building games, and more.
