Another year, another fantastic Life Day Party!

Thanks to our hosts Josh and April for welcoming this motley crew into your home once again.

First off, a little yummy food prep was n store.

Time to eat!

And then, the dark side descends.

And how could we not have a party without a TON of talking…

Galloping Ghost Arcade!

October 14th, 2017

It was a dark and stormy night. Really, O’Hare got four inches of rain and the southern suburbs got eight. But that didn’t stop us from meeting at Lencho’s house and continuing on to Galloping Ghost.

We watched the new trailer for The Last Jedi multiple times. Then threw up some Star Wars Blips, Thor and other fun videos as we chowed on pizza. Then we braved the rain to head to Galloping Ghost.

So quick game, spot a member of Chicago Force!

And of course, we all spent a little time in what I like to call the Star Wars corner:

All in all, despite the weather, it was a great time.
