This is just a quick shout-out and thank you to AFK Tavern in Everette, WA. AFK is a restaurant/bar that caters to gamers. It’s an amazing place with a fantasy/game-themed menu for both food and drinks (try the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster!). They’ve also got a separate menu for actual board games and rpgs that they will bring to the table for you to play while you’re there, plus plenty of computer and console game stations for video games.
The people who run this place have always been extremely friendly, kind, and generous. And so when Jen and I needed to have a “headquarters” for Geek Seekers, AFK was the obvious choice. Again, the folks that run the place were very generous, letting us in while they were closed to film a segment for our first episode. On top of all that, now they’re sponsors of the show, helping us purchase extra gear and gifting us with some cool AFK swag.
I just couldn’t go any longer without publicly acknowledging how great they are. Gamers in the Pacific Northwest owe it to themselves to go and check this place out. It’s a lot of fun, and very welcoming.
