Last Thursday was the debut of Old School Video Game Night at Pareidolia Brewing Company. Some of the popular game options were Super Mario Kart, Street Fighter, and Donkey Kong.
Most people showed up to enjoy dinner before they signed up to participate in this Retro night of games. It certainly brought back some memories for everyone who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s.
The Retro Night of Games event is great for the entire family. Last Thursday the competitors ranged in age from about 10 – 50. The competition included fathers against daughters, friends playing friends, and strangers competing against strangers.
The first round is fifteen minutes of play time, the second round is 10 minutes, and the playoffs are only five minutes.
Pareidolia owners Peter and Lynn Anderson have always tried to make the pub family-oriented. Their previous events have included, board game night, trivia. They still have trivia night every other Thursday.
The atmosphere inside Pareidolia is like a public house, or pub, where people in the community can come and have conversations, play games, and listen to music.
Pareidolia Brewing Company was the first brewery in Sebastian, Florida. They have beers made with local Florida hops, and some are from Fort Pierce.
The Old School Video Game Night is twice a month or every other Thursday. The next one will be July 11, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.
Pareidolia is located at 712 Cleveland Street in Sebastian.
